Hi, I’m Abbe.
I’m a clinical herbalist, nail tech, and artist. I call L.A. home, but I was born and raised on a small farm in Missouri. I hold a multitude of perspectives; my life is a mix of practicality and a love for the eccentric.
There’s often a purist perspective in wellness—you won’t find that here. I love taking my herbs, getting outdoors, and living my life. Occasional Doritos and natty wine included. I believe in healthy living, in moderation.
I’m most inspired by my scientifically led teachers, like 7Song, who research, study, and use real experiences to inform their practice. This woo-woo-free therapeutic approach drives both Zizia and my medical foot care work on Skid Row with Street Feet L.A.
After 10+ years of doing this, I’ve got some strong ideas on how herbs actually work. My goal is to create herbs that go with you, no matter where you’re at. From herbal candies to skincare and tinctures, I make things I love taking.
Here at Zizia, we believe that herbalism can be powerful AND fun. Live your life and herb it up. Welcome to the family.
