Self Heal Distributing

Robert and Laurie Szott-Rogers

Self Heal Distributing is both a wholesale and retail company for flower and mushroom essences, including FES, English, and Prairie Deva; as well as Scents of Wonder essential oils, and over 60 self-authored books.

Founded in 2003,  Colleen Emery developed Emery Herbals as a small, urban, inner city home based business, providing access to consciously sourced and created plant medicine.  In 2011, Colleen, her husband Ashley and daughter Freya moved from the inner city to an off grid yurt in the heart of the West Kootenay Mountains. Emery Herbals expanded in the small village of Winlaw, BC to house an East West focused Botanical Compounding Dispensary, Healing Suites and Teaching Centre.

Emery Herbals commitment is to provide open access to high quality, consciously sourced botanicals; professional health services and empowering education experiences that aim to encourage and cultivate sustained wellness.

The Botanical Dispensary provides formulating, compounding and dispensing services for the local community, regional health practitioners as well as distant clients and health providers in other areas of the world. Through the many years of formulating and custom blending for her clients, Colleen Emery has created a dynamic offering of shelf products ready to dispense directly to our clients available for purchase in the Winlaw location as well as in the Online Apothecary.

Emery Herbals Healing Suites offers access to educated and trained health Practitioners in a peaceful and enriching environment to help guide and support your wellness and healing journey.

Our Teaching Centre actively provides education experiences to help grow your connection to the natural world and bring empowerment to your healthcare. Providing access to both onsite and online workshops and programs, Emery Herbals offers an array of herbal medicine education options from home use to clinical practice.

Little Piece of Paradise Farm

We are a small-scale culinary and medicinal herb farm located along the Slocan River in the beautiful Slocan Valley, BC. 

Using regenerative farming practices, namely, our sheep, goats and pigs to work and fertilize the land, we can ensure that no heavy equipment or chemicals ever touch the soil, or our herbs. 

All of the herbs on our website are either wildcrafted on our land or cultivated in our fields. Everything is picked by hand and dried on site.

We will include 2 sample packs of other herbs, which can be chosen or we will choose you, if you mention the Herb Conference in the “Order Notes” section of their order. Sample packs are 1-3g of herbs, depending on the size of the herb. 

Also, we offer a flat rate of $2.50 for shipping anywhere in Canada and there is free shipping for purchases of $30 or more.

Hello Plant Lover, Just a note that you may enjoy my books, The Herbal Apprentice and The Herbal Apprentice Workbook. They are about learning to think like a herbalist and go beyond a list of what a plant does, but how it interacts with the body/mind.  Check is out at

or my web site:

Restorative Formulations offers health care practitioners a range of therapeutic formulations designed to maximize hormone, cardiac, and immune function in the clinical setting. We set the standard for purity and potency, with 95% of our botanicals and botanical extracts being certified organic.

Nutritionally dense and created to support your mind and body wherever they take you.

HEALING SPIRITUALITY (Introduction to Bach Flowers):

Pemberton Herbs & Apothecary

Pemberton Herbs & Apothecary is a reincarnation of the herb growing company that I had when living in the Lower Mainland of B.C. Previously, I grew certified organic medicinal herbs but as the plot that I am now on is too small to certify, I will grow as if I was certified. Come spring 2021, I will grow a wide range of sustainably grown medicinal herbs and will sell them in dried form. Let me know if you have been struggling to find a specific herb and I will do my best to grow the best!

I offer herbal health consultations, available by phone or online, as well as in person at my farm clinic in Southeastern Ontario.  I harvest and make almost all the herbal medicines I work with in my practice, and I like to focus on food as medicine wherever possible.  My experience as a practitioner includes a lot of women’s health issues, sleep challenges and recovery from periods of stress/anxiety.  I also regularly teach classes, and lead wild plant identification walks.  All health consults are currently available to everyone on a pay-what-you-can basis.   CHC participants can use the code CHCHAWTHORN to receive a 15% discount on all classes or plant ID walks that are booked by January 30th 2021.  Gift certificates are also available. Please contact me about this.
