The Cedar and Sage Herbal Medicine, LLC Story
"It is health that is real wealth" -Mahatma Gandhi
Cedar and Sage Herbal Medicine was created by Herbalist Andrea Buchanan.
From an early age, Andrea was inspired and fascinated by alternative ways of healing and taking care of the body. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2011, Andrea still had the desire to persue the healing arts. In 2016, Andrea received her 200 hour certificate to teach yoga from the AvAhana School of Yoga. Teaching yoga has been a fantastic way for Andrea to share ways of taking care of the mind, body, and spirit, yet she still craved being able to help people even more holistically. In 2018, Andrea received her Herbalist certificate from Green Path Herb School. Being able to help others take care of themselves and heal themselves naturally through the use of herbs, lifestyle change, and yoga is Andrea's joy and passion.
The name Cedar and Sage Herbal Medicine is important to Andrea in two different ways. Cedar (Thuja plicata) is an antimicrobial, anti fungal, and antibacterial herb. Sage (Salvia apiana) is a powerful antiviral and antibacterial herb. Both herbs have an important place in plant medicine. The name Cedar and Sage also came with the help of Andrea's two dogs: Cedar, a two-year-old labrador retriever, and Sage, a seven-year-old Catahoula Blue Heeler cross.
You can often find Andrea with Cedar and Sage out playing frisbee or enjoying Montana's beautiful outdoors.
