I do not empower you.

I recognize that you’re powerful.

community offerings

clinical herbalist


We are at our highest potential when we share and receive inspiration, wisdom, and information with one another and support each other through our phases of life. We are not meant to do this alone. We are highly social animals who traditionally depend on one another through cooperation and solitary. In our modern society, that strength has been weakened. Too many people are left feeling overwhelmed, alone, and aren't being fully informed. Through community workshops, professional training, and online courses, I am dedicated to bring us together to share information. I stand for wholeness and embodiment, and I want people feeling knowledgeable, empowered, and acting as active participants in their health and wellness.


support by life stage

Through my comprehensive studies of clinical herbalism and holistic health and arts of female life cycles, I draw from evidence based sciences, ancestral traditions passed through generations, and my natural gift as an intuitive to offer heart-centered support focused on all stages of sacred female health, from menstruation to menopause.

On my urban homestead and certified wildlife habitat, I blend my experiences and education to create small batches of ethically sourced nature-based products honoring all stages of life. I always aim for our herbs to be grown on our property, sustainably wild-harvested, or purchased from local farms. By working alongside our local land and community, I want to create thoughtful relationships built upon health and wellness. Ingredients that are not available locally are ethically sourced, and nothing is ever prepared with herbicides, pesticides, fillers, additives, or preservatives. As passionate as I am about connecting people with the healing properties of plants, I am also aware of what we are returning back to Mother Earth. From our recycled cotton t-shirt business cards, to our recycled and compostable product zip-bags, leaving minimal waste is a top priority of mine.


about me


Hi, I’m Emily Frigo. I'm a mother, the founder of The Association of Herbalism and Healing Arts, a Clinical and Traditional Herbalist, a Doula studying Midwifery, a Reiki Master, and a Women's Healing Arts practitioner and educator. I believe in the healing power of holding space, of gathering together intentionally, and of making informed choices. 

I found holistic health and herbal support during my journey through a stillbirth, reoccurring miscarriages, and secondary infertility. I went on to suffer an injury during birth which resulted in lifelong chronic pelvic pain, and debilitating postpartum depression. I was disconnected with my body, with my health, and with my overall sense of well-being. I saw a variety of physicians and specialists who brushed off my infertility, didn't hold space for my losses, and completely ignored my pelvic pain. It was during these experiences that I was called to being an advocate for my own health and fused together modern science, earth medicine, and healing arts to support my mind, body, and spirit.

I am now the mother of four children, where we live on our Urban Homestead and Certified Wildlife Habitat in Cincinnati, Ohio. After over a decade of professional education, I practice and teach herbalism and healing arts to people who are seeking nourishment on their physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.  I support families through their childbearing year. And I share with others how to make informed choices about their health and how to re-connect with themselves by connecting with their intuition, knowing their own power, and using the natural world for healing. 

I'm honored to share this connection with you.
