"The richness, content and moments of internal bells and whistles ringing is quite something. Thank You Ash. I am grateful to be witnessing, receiving, and processing all you share."


"Thank you SO much for reminding us of who we are..."


"One of the most thoughtful, well-rounded, and unique herbalists I know..."

Greetings, I’m Ash!


Ash Ritter is an ethnobotanist & herbalist, botanical confectioner, and educator, drawing from 20 years experience in traditional, academic, and clinical herbalism settings.

One-on-one longterm apprenticeships are the cornerstone of her training, extending into Druid herbalism, clinical botanical medicine, Mexican & Peruvian curanderismo & "guerilla" urban first aid. Her bachelors degree thesis focused on botanical & fungal agents for initiation, and altered states as evolutionary technology.

Ash's longstanding commitment takes shape as gathering the remnants and forging a cohesive & unique synthesis that pays homage to past, present and future generations.
