La Abeja Herbs
La Abeja means Honeybee in Spanish. For as long as humans have known them, we have been fascinated by and have even worshipped the small but elegant Apis mellifera. Their hives are miracles of ingenuity, their efficiency and industry surpass that of the even the most sophisticated civilizations, and of course the sweet nectar they alchemically transform and preserve is enough to deserve our undying admiration. Wherever honeybees pollinate, both flowers and food crops become wildly more abundant and successful, as if Demeter herself had graced the Earth beneath them.
Honey boasts countless and diverse healing properties and is also one of the most nourishing foods for the body, heart, and soul. This too is the mission of La Abeja Herbs, to offer guidance and support to people on their healing paths, all the while celebrating and embracing the sweetness of life.
A nomad’s apothecary, La Abeja Herbs is the business of native Austinite, Sophia Rose. Sophia Rose is softness + strength. She is fierce and loving honesty, quiet curiosity. She is a woman who listens deeply to the singing of the Earth’s Spirit and shares the beauty of all that she hears through her work as a Folk Healer and Herbalist.
