About Me

Hi! I’m Ashley and this is my blog.

About Lux Botanical Co.

I created the Lux Botanical Co. blog in 2024 to share my passion for both herbalism and writing. I am really passionate about helping others and want to empower people to take control of their own health with herbal remedies, instead of being over-reliant on a medical system that oftentimes values profit over the person.

While I wanted to honor St. Hildegard von Bingen in the name, her name is really difficult to spell and remember, making it less than ideal for a business name.

One of the most fascinating things about St. Hildegard were her visions, where she acquired much of the knowledge on herbalism and healing (which contributed greatly to the field of monastic medicine.) She referred to these visions as ‘lux vivens’ or “shadow of the living light.” which is where I drew inspiration from the name.

Currently, I’m trying to put together everything I need to apply to be a Registered Herbalist through the American Herbalist Guild– after which I hope to begin offering consultations and selling herbal products and custom formulations.
