"My experience with Meraki Farmacy has been quite amazing thus far! Not only are you incredibly knowledgeable about plants, but also such a kind, compassionate, and fun human to talk to. I’m so happy I reached out and found out about your consult offerings. When I left the consult, not only did I have a package of plant goodies to look forward to, but also lots of other resources to guide me in my healing. I’ve been using my tincture, flower essence, boo boo balm concoction for a little over a month now and what has come from it has been life changing. Thank you for the amazing work that you do for the world !"
"Lu, I started using chemical-free products in my early 20s. For approximately 15 years I have tried countless products, and your's are by far my favorite! Not only are they completely chemical-free and packaged with thought toward the environment; they are the most effective. Triple power punch of awesomeness, girl!" - Jan
"When my Mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer this past February I knew I wanted to help guide her towards natural and holistic approaches when applicable. In reading the back of the ointment she was given by the radiologist it was plain to see calendula was the active ingredient. So I wrote to Lu at Meraki Farmacy to ask for advice. She got right back to me with kind words and amazing suggestions. I purchased the Boo Boo Balm, bruise balm and Calendula soap. My Mom LOVED everything. She enjoyed the fact that Meraki salves were not as greasy as the product given to her by the doctor. In her 2nd to last week of radiation the radiologist took my Mom aside to ask "What have you been using on your skin?" because typically patients' skin would be in really terrible shape by the end of treatment. We are so grateful that Lu takes the time to grow these healing plants and make these incredible salves and soaps. We definitely attribute my beautiful Mother's healing a bit quicker to the plant medicine she makes." What an honor. Thank you, Andie. "Received my magical care package last evening, filled with many good goodies. Hopped in the shower and checked out the Bee Clean and Locks and Lather (fka Beerd Soap). Left the shower feeling and smelling clean (which isn't often) and without that dry bar soapy feeling I usually get with the cheap box store brands. Skin still feels smooth today. A work day rarely passes without cutting myself several times so I'll be trying out the boo balm when I leave here. I can feel all the magic and mad respect infused with every product. Cheers." - Chris, a welder, urban homesteader/wild forager
"Yesterday I got the Locks and Lather (fka Beerd Bar) in the mail from Meraki Farmacy. It's a shampoo soap made with beer and formulated for beards. I tried it tonight and like it better than anything else I've tried so far. " - John; writer & literary critic, animal welfare advocate and craftsperson
"Love the Teeth Paste! And the Boo-Boo Balm is a straight up miracle. I had a small rash/irritation on the side of my nose, rubbed a little balm on it and it's practically gone! I've been using something else for weeks with no results." - Aly, womxn in cannabis
Your Boo Boo Balm cured my face cancer!" it wasn't cancer, but it was a suspected insect bite that had started to infect. two days of boo boo balm and the condition resolved, without complications.
"A friend asked me about the Pit Stick. It's what I have been looking for! It smells great, it's free of harmful chemicals & it keeps me dry. I haven't even needed to reapply it. Lioux, thank you for making something that works, I am super impressed!"
"The Poppy & Lavender soap is hands down the best soap I have ever used. It's been hard to try Meraki's other soaps because I love this one so much. I'm not typically a lavender girl, but the smell is subtle and lovely. The soap contains real poppy seeds, so it's a natural exfoliant. I don't use nearly as much lotion as I used to because this soap doesn't leave me dried out. I love it so much, I've given it as gifts to other people. Do yourself a favor, and definitely try this soap!"
"I wanted to let you know I am trying the Pit Stick (lavender) today. It's great!! I was unsure about lavender: when I have gotten natural deodorants with lavender in the past, that smell was stinky on me. But this is lovely! You have definitely perfected your recipe! I also got the lemongrass and can't wait to try it!” - Leann; educator, performer, parent
The Chill Joy blend "is so light and grounding all at once! I really appreciate how close to the earth it is, like it's bringing the outdoors into my body. Thank you so much!"
"The Locks & Lather Bar isn't your average personal hygiene item. It is beyond that. Prior to switching to this shampoo bar I was using a commercial "natural" shampoo. My scalp wast itchy and constantly irritated. within TWO uses of Merak' L&L my scalp is actually healed and no longer itchy. It's moisturizing, healing and cleansing. It also doubles as an amazing shave lotion which gives a super close shave, and that's just a bonus. It really is a superstar shampoo." Thank you, Erin! So so happy to hear the rosemary, beer and jojoba are treating your hair and scalp as intended: with healing and moisturizing power.
"Today was my first day using the Locks & Lather shampoo. ahhhhhhmazing. I didn't realize how itchy my old shampoo was making my head. I'm sitting here realizing my head isn't itchy and it's blissful! I love it! It's so clean and it doesn't smell perfumed, my scalp doesn't look dry. Love love love. Also I used it to shave my legs, so much better! I'll stop gushing now. But I'm a fan. For Life."
"That lemon balm tincture is incredible! I took three drops tonight, it has totally softened my heightened nervous system after work. I can't thank you enough. I also started using the breast and lymph oil as my post work self massage (again for calming my nervous system). I just want you to know I am so grateful for the plant medicine you make!"
"Your SPF salve is amaaazing!! Yesterday we went to the river. I layered it with some other spf and didn't burn at all. However, I forgot to do my back! I burned, but the salve after the sun made it look so good, less than a day later. I don't know if you meant for it to be an after sun salve, but it WORKS. I have fair skin and usually peel like crazy when I get red. Thank you!!" a nurse and food as medicine advocate

"An excited wildling who tripped in the driveway, skinning their knee. A dog who adventures too hard at the beach and cuts open his chin. A toddler who refuses to potty-learn and develops a rash due to secretly dirty diaper. A partner who slices their hand open framing their art. My own chapped lips and hands from a ton of time playing in the dirt, in the sun. This is a list of ways we have used Boo Boo Balm just in the last week. It is essentially a sixth member of our family. Seventh if you count the accident prone dog. Which I do. I can’t think of anything Boo Boo Balm can’t fix. Schmear it on everyone and I swear we will achieve world peace. Or at the very least, have healthy, plant based, nourished, healed skin. Same thing, really"
"I am so grateful that Meraki Farmacy and Lu came onto my radar and into my life! Lu is a gifted farmer/grower, maker, practitioner, teacher, and healer. I discovered Lu on the internets talking about plants and plant medicine, and was immediately taken by their open demeanor, knowledge, humor, and generous spirit. Through their informative (and truly calming!) discussions on IG I became interested in the potential benefits of nervines to support my nervous system. Lu was incredibly approachable and helpful when I initially posed some questions about what would be appropriate for me to start with -- compatible with my specific needs and situation, as well as my budget. We didn't just schedule a consult: we discussed what the consult would entail (and what it wouldn't), and Lu asked me to share information in advance that would help her guide me.
Through the entire process Lu was incredibly patient and supportive, and came prepared to the consult having considered the details in the lengthy description in my initial email. I was impressed by Lu's knowledge and her ability to provide a safe environment to discuss difficult issues. Lu made it clear where her knowledge was applicable and where its limits were and I should consult my other practitioners and other sources - which really served to build trust. I left the consult feeling seen and honored, and buoyed by Lu's insight and encouragement. Lu generously put together a combination of products that would work together well and fit my limited budget. She also provided the information I needed about how to optimally introduce and use them, and was open to questions and follow-up. It really helped me to navigate entering into the world of plant-based healing. I could not recommend a consult with Lu, or her Meraki Farmacy products more highly. If you are curious - reach out to Lu, you will be giving yourself a gift! 11/10 would consult again!"
