About Us

Hello! I’m Mel.

My base camp is a small town nestled into a wide valley in southwest Montana.

I love getting outside, connecting with nature, and finding ways to bring nature and the forest indoors. I’ve long been interested in herbalism, essential oils, and other ways of using botanics.

I started this site to explore those interests, along with looking for ways to more deeply connect with the natural world, myself, and others.

On The Forest Wellness, you will find all those topics, plus my favorite natural products, moon and seasonal celebrations, manifestation, and  other forays into the “woo.”

Thanks for joining me and let me know what you’d like to see here.
