Discovering & Recovering the Salish Sea.
I plan to schedule monthly studio showings, setting appointments an hour apart for local folks on Duwamish Territory to safely check out all my goodies.
I have been an empath for as long as I can remember. My emotional perceptivity is entwined with all forms of life, from animals to people to plants. Moving through the world as a sensitive, two-spirit individual, I constantly strive to restore, reclaim, and protect my ancestral medicine while also honoring plant allies from other lands. I believe that there is grounding energy and comfort in knowing more about plants and the language we share with one another. I hope to help others break destructive cycles and form healthier patterns with ourselves and with nature. I firmly believe that anything we put ON our bodies should be as safe and natural as anything we would put IN our bodies.
I work to restore the lands and uplift indigenous medicine. I support BIPOC whenever possible when purchasing any plant medicine that I do not grow myself yet. If you know of any resources, please share them with me. I'm coming up with a dashboard of all the plants I can offer for other makers and would love to share what other POC are growing!
When trying new products, please start in small portions and follow the directions carefully. Although my products are all-natural, certain plants can very occasionally trigger sensitivities or allergic reactions. Get to know them slowly and perform a patch test first on a small area to make sure the mixture is compatible with your skin.
I feel called to offer specialized and custom medicinals, as well as custom commissions for pottery and ceramics. Reach out if interested!
For more information on stories of the plants, myself, my medicine garden, and other creative endeavors, please join me on my socials at Singing Pots, or at my website JessReneCreative.com.

I'm also mixed with Spanish on my mothers side and trying to heal from colinazation within my family.
On my father side we are of First Nations: Algonquin: Mi'kma, Cree, Montagnais, Ojibway. Iroquois, Ottawa.
I'm also mixed with Scandinavian, my great grandmother on my father's side was the first to come to the America's in Minnesota. A decendant of the Indigenous Sámi peoples.
I'm not enrolled but im working towards it. I'm not federally recognized and want my culture back! I'm still searching for my family & tribes and would love to learn more Indigenous language and songs. I welcome others to share any info with me♡
