Asking questions is paramount. If you don't see your question here please email me.
Using the Teeth Paste: Shake or stir, dip brush into the paste & brush your teeth, use in conjunction with other dental hygiene habits like flossing, oil pulling, mouth wash. Rinse brush. You can swallow the paste or spit: your choice. If you are familiar with oil pulling, you use rad plant based things to pull nasties from your mouth and get rid of it. You can spit out into the sink with some childlike delight! Look at the tiny plant skeletons! Look at the nasties it has taken from your mouth! WAHOO! The difference with the Teeth Paste is the diatomaceous earth. It acts like a strong magnet grabbing the nasties and will hold onto them all the way through your digestive tract, even pulling more with it. DE holds onto bacteria, fungus, protozoa, heavy metals and pesticides. Using TINCTURES: Shake before use. Add 1-3 drops directly under tongue or into water or tea, 1-3 times a day. For acute condition use more frequently for a few days, follow up with other providers if condition becomes chronic. For chronic conditions use 1-3 times a day for 1-3 months. Store in cool, dark place like a kitchen or medicine cabinet, nightstand, travel bag. Use for physical ailments and somatic experiences. Using FLOWER ESSENCES: Shake before use. Less is more! Add 1-3 drops into water, 1-3 times a day, for 1-3 months. Store in a cool, dark place like a kitchen or medicine cabinet, nightstand, travel bag. Use for emotional conditions and psychospiritual work. Using SALVES, OILS, BALMS: Apply to clean skin for intended use. Use within 6-12 months of purchase. You can refrigerate for longer use. Store in cool, dark place like a kitchen or medicine cabinet, nightstand, travel bag. Using MEDICINAL SOAPS: The best way to keep your soap lasting longer and from getting really mushy is to store it as dry as possible between uses. You can use the Meraki Medicinal soaps daily or as needed, weekly as part of your rituals of care. Vitamin E is an ingredient in all soaps and balms, nourishing your skin and acting as a natural preservative. However, there IS shelf life just like all things natural. You should use the soap within 6 months of purchase. FUN FACT: Each soap responds to your skin & your water quality so each person will have a unique experience. Isn't that rad? Making TEA/INFUSIONS: Add 2-3 tsp of leaves & flowers to 4-6 oz nearly boiling water, cover and steep for 10 mins - 4 hours. Strain and drink for intended purpose. Adding blends for smoke: Sprinkle atop cannabis or tobacco, fill your smoking vessel and enjoy.

Pass it on option? Where does that money go? Mutual empowerment, accessibility and affordable health care. Accessibility is paramount. In the capitalist, white centric society in which we live, there are millions of people who don't have access to safe products. I kindly request that white people, people with increased access to resources, people who are financially stable through the effects of COVID-19, share resources so that People of Color, Black people, Indigenous people, Queer people and Trans people, those in poverty can have access to medicinal and preventative care essentials. This is one way I as a practitioner and business owner can honor and pay respects to the folks who suffer immensely from systems that are violent and oppressive. I need your aid, generosity, assistance, commitment to do so.
Accountability: Meraki Farmacy presumes you are a responsible humxn making informed and conscious choices regarding the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of you and yours. This is folk medicine, suggestions and guidance and tools for harm reduction and home treatment of common ailments and experiences.
