She also grows medicinal plants that she uses to craft wellness products such as tinctures, balms, oil infusions, and teas. Some of her favorite flowers to grow are marigold, butterfly pea, and amaranth for their to-dye- magic and beauty, but none has electrified her senses as much as her favorite herb, Spilanthes.
