Today we’d like to introduce you to Tasha Rose.
Hi Tasha, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
In 2016, I was pregnant and knew I wanted to make organic elderberry syrup for myself and my family, and I knew I could make it so that it was delicious and imbued with sacred prayer and love. So, when my daughter was born, I did just that.
Then, I formulated Victory Elixir, which has since turned into our best seller. What was unknown to me at the time was that the seeds of Tasha Rose had been planted.
Word started to spread among friends that were also moms. They told their friends and so on. People started wanting what I was making. It was exciting!
My past apprenticeship in herbalism, my lifelong love of plants, and an innate entrepreneurial streak turned into Tasha Rose the company.
As my family has grown so has our product line. Everything we offer has grown out of a direct need for either myself or my family, and I hope you love everything we make as much as I do!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Of course, there are struggles when it comes to starting and growing a business at the same time as birthing and raising two kids, but I am lucky to have some wonderful customers who really love our products and they tell their friends about us all the time. That has made growing Tasha Rose much easier. It really does takes a village to raise our children, so to have a mom recommend us to another mom is a dream come true.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I work with the plants on a personal and spiritual level, meaning when I start to work with a plant, I treat it like a person. I introduce myself, say thank you for your time, ask if we can be friends, what it can teach me, what its medicine is, where it likes to go in the body, how it likes to move, etc. I try to “see” what the spirit of the plant looks like what its personality is. The more I work with the plant the stronger our relationship grows, and this takes time. This is the reason you don’t see a large amount of ingredients in any of our formulas, and also why I use certain plants, like Nettles that I have the strongest relationship with, in multiple formulas. I’m proud of these relationships I’ve built with the plants. I honor them and call them into sacred space every time we make a batch of anything. This is what makes our products different than anyone else’s. They have my sacred prayers and intentions for your highest health in them, and because of this our tagline is: a sacred prayer in every bottle.
In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
I see traditional healing modalities like herbalism, acupuncture, energy healing and such absolutely continuing to grow in use. People want to feel empowered to take care of themselves, they don’t want to feel like the answers to helping themselves feel better are outside of themselves. We can do this by reminding them of the basics like eating the rainbow, getting sunshine and fresh air, exercising, consistent deep sleep, nourishing herbs and adaptogens. Each of these work on foundational/cellular levels to bring the body back to balance and optimal functioning. Information like this isn’t anything new, it’s basic, but as a society, we have become very removed from the cycles of nature, and sometimes we need a reminder.
Because of this these traditional healing modalities, like those of our great grandparents and our ancestors that came before them are coming full circle. There is 100% a time and place for both traditional and modern medicine, and I think after the huge shift to modern medicine in the last century many people are now recognizing that we need both. Traditional medicines honor the individual, the root cause and our place in the infinite spiral of evolution. I believe in order to have vibrant health, I must be aware of my inner self, the world around me (society and nature), and feel connected to them all.
