Coming soon…

Dear kin, let me introduce myself to you.

I am Janina, creative mind, passionate heart & earth-covered hands behind „Wilder medicines“.

I´ve been traveling the wild landscapes of being human since thirty years, and the natural kingdom has been my faithful guide & lover on this journey for the past seven years.
During many years of travel, I deeply immersed in ethnobotany & different cultural approaches to plant medicine, before coming home to my European roots and finishing my degree as a naturopath specialized in phytotherapy & integrative herbal gynecology.

I live in the South German mountains, in a community in the forest, and this nest in nature is the source from which I create all my offerings. Here, I grow medicine gardens, I craft botanical medicines & natural artwork inspired by the seasons, and I practice ancestral rituals of earth-guardianship.

My work & weaving are informed by a profoundly animist & intuitive understanding of nature.

I believe that the world around us is enlivened & enchanted, and that in order to create a healed, balanced world, we need to open our senses to be able to perceive the messages of the wild again.

When you look closely, everything around you is a gift.
Everything is medicine. Everything is interwoven, bound to pulse with the same heartbeat.

My purpose is it to help you re-discover your personal doorway towards the healing path of living & thriving in accordance with body, land & soul. For that, I use tools & technologies derived from nature therapy, folk herbalism, seasonal ritual, ancestral mythology, feminine mysteries and ancient craftforms.

Ultimately, I see myself as a weaver, of fiber & thread, word & story, dreams & remembrance, and I am here to weave you back into a deep sense of belonging to landscape & lineage.

This is why I founded „Wilder medicines“.

This space is a sanctuary for the seekers, a collection of treasures for the curious and a moss-covered monument for the unfolding mystery.
It is built upon three pillars, each of them an ancient technology that can illuminate your path of becoming & belonging.
