Hi! My name is Elokin Orton-Cheung, I'm a community herbalist, activist, and big garden nerd. I fell in love with plants when I grew my first bean at age 6- it was magikal to watch a little seed turn into a full grown plant, covered in delicious string beans!
I've been studying herbal medicine since 2003, starting with Howie Brounstein at the Columbine's School of Botanical Studies, and continuing with Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes
at the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine.
I created Shooting Star Botanicals in 2012, as a wellness practice dedicated to healing and social change. My work is centered on a commitment to healing justice- a belief that we all have the right to affordable, accessible, high quality health care. I will support you to set and meet your goals for being in emotional, spiritual, and physical health through working with herbal medicine.
I offer herbal consultations, Spiritual Massage energy work, and teach classes on plant medicine and sustainable gardening. I believe through connecting deeply with the healing nature of herbal medicine, we can make the changes we want to see in ourselves, the communities we are connected to, and the world we are part of. I love this work, and look forward to connecting with you!
