FRET NOT || OLAMINA BOTANICALS
Fret Not brings together Milky Oats, Tulsi and California Poppy, three of our favorite nervous system-nourishing plants, to offer calm on the toughest days.
Milky Oats help to literally rebuild frayed myelin sheath, or the insulating layer of protein and fatty substances that form around nerve endings, which can become physically damaged when we experience stress, anxiety and trauma. Tulsi, or Holy Basil, is a brightening, sweet and steadying plant whose adaptogenic properties may enable it to help the body better adapt to stress. California Poppy provides a backbone of fast-acting nervous system relief.
Olamina Botanicals founder Jess Turner is a Black clinical and community herbalist whose practice is centered on helping frontline communities repair through connection to the land and plants growing around them. In cities, these plants are often discarded as mere weeds.
With more than eight growing seasons under her belt, Jess cultivates many of the herbs found in Olamina’s formulas, carefully sourcing additional botanicals from the medicinal herb farmers with whom she is in community.
Honored to have arrived at a place where she can be of service, Jess draws strength from the ongoing resilience of her people.
