Learn more about Thom.

Thom’s love of herbs began at the age of five when he planted morning glories with his mother in the backyard of his childhood home. Watching the vines grow and bloom for the rest of the season gave him a sense of accomplishment that has morphed into an urban do-it-yourself ethic more than three decades later. You can frequently find him engaging in sustainable living experiments, which these days means canning tomatoes, fermenting vegetables, and trying to figure out how he’s going to fit that vermi-composting bin in his kitchen. Thom’s favorite herb is currently Huang Qi. The current batch of Huang Qi at Inner Ecology smells like raspberries and shortbread. Delicious!

Whether compounding formulas at Inner Ecology, cooking recipes in the kitchen, or mixing ingredients for a spa treatment, Nisa enjoys finding fun, new ways to use herbs. One of her favorite herbs is Shan Zha. Whether in Haw Flakes, an herbal decoction, or a simple after-dinner drink, this little fruit is always associated with great memories of family and friends. Nisa especially likes the fresh, sweet smell of the Shan Zha at Inner Ecology. She also enjoys discovering great eats wherever she goes.

Learn more about Morgan.

Morgan’s appreciation for Chinese herbal medicine was founded in grad school, when she discovered that an herbal formula can replace antihistamines in her life! She has many favorite herbs, all of them bitter to some degree or another. She enjoys using the seeds, nuts, and berries of Chinese medicine in everyday ways in her kitchen, and appreciates all plants and seasons on daily hikes in and out of the city.
