“Every home should have an herbalist.”

Dr. JJ Pursell has been working in the field of natural health and wellness for over 20 years.  Her dedicated focus turned to plant medicine in her early 20’s but her interest began as a child at her fathers flower farm. Working with her mentor, Linda Quintana of Wonderland Tea and Spice she gained direct knowledge, master to student. Learning the ways of the plants from seed to harvest and processing into medicine changed her life as the knowledge awakened knowing that this was to be her professional path.  As new experiences often do, this new direction opened up doorways and opportunities, one of which was attending and graduating from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2007 with a doctorate in Naturopathic medicine and masters in Acupuncture.

During her course of study though, she missed working with the plant medicine day to day and decided to open The Herb Shoppe, the only herb shoppe in metro Portland, Oregon at the time. Over the course of 14 years Dr. JJ owned 3 different locations and welcomed hundreds of interns to offer the experience of working with the community and herbal medicine. In 2015 her first book was released, The Herbal Apothecary and has written 2 additional books since then, The Woman’s Apothecary and Master Recipes of the Herbal Apothecary. Always working on a project and ready to support others on positive missions she is currently working on her latest product, Restoration Gel, supporting others in success and spending as much time as she can on her farm with her family and furry friends of all kinds.
