Botanicals, Herbal Compounds

John Anderson, Registered Nurse Naturalist Director was raised inside a NJ Nature Center inside a NJ State Park w parents who were educators, naturalists and botanists. My appreciation to the natural benefits from our natural world goes back 50 plus years. 

As I traveled the world on extended climbing, hiking, biking kayaking and mountaineering trips I learned first-hand how comfrey lessens itch of poison ivy and other rashes, sassafras leaves cool mosquito and no-see-um bites, herbs make poultices, teas, and more.

Quick pick me ups rubbing crushed juniper across ones hands and feet, sumac teas lessen headaches, salt covered tidal plants boast energy, calming aromas under Douglas Fir and Sitka Spruce when coastal kayaking and much more.   These everyday uses followed me on a 30 year career as a traveling Registered Nurse.   Seeing first-hand how locals use the natural world for their personal health anchored an interest in natural therapies.  

Naturally this interest follows me here on a 76 year old active Rancocas Creek Watershed Farm.  Sustainable Atlantic White Cedar silviculture anchor a reservoir of natural herbal, medical and botanical resources. All inquiries confidential. Text  609-456-9344
