The Stories

Meet the Maker: Sister Spinster; Apothecary

LAUREN MUSACCHIO

The High Priestess of Sister Spinster Apothecary, Liz Migliorelli is a western herbalist and magic maker who believes in affordable, accessible, community-based health care and the healing power of plants. She believes in the healing that comes from gardens, the local land and cozy kitchens. She came to the herbal path through her own healing crisis as well as a frustration with the loss of ancestral wisdom and privatization of health care in the United States. Liz is devoted to encouraging others to find empowerment through self-care and harm reduction, to find healing in a cup of fir tip and strawberry leaf tea, and to find magic in the simple practices that connect us to the Earth. When making an essence she captures the potent energy and wisdom of a beautiful flower in its fullest bloom. The vibrational essences work in the realm of emotional and spiritual imbalances; allowing us to shift perpetual consciousness patterns and release old energies that are no longer serving us. She lives and works in Oakland, CA.
