Arise Botanicals is the labor of love and life's work of herbalist, Alex Svoboda.  My work is based around client-centered herbal consultations, hands-on workshops, seasonal products and custom herbal formulations.  I practice in the Western herbal tradition as a certified clinical herbalist and nutritionist. Many of the remedies I use are locally cultivated by myself or other trusted herbalists and farmers. Sourcing remedies from the ecosystems we’re integrated into is an important part of the medicine I offer.

My mission is to help people connect to the earth centered healing that brings about transformative change.  Whether in the garden or out in the community, I carry a deep reverence and respect for both plants and people.  You are your own best healer. I’m here with a toolbox of herbal allies to help address the roots of your health concerns.

Arise Botanicals is a source for compassionate, accessible, informed and ethical holistic care.


Cultivating Skills

Next class: Intro to Herbalism, a two hour hands-on workshop will be offered on two separate dates (Oct. 25th and Nov. 2nd). Click the Find a Class button to learn more and register online.

Come explore the roots of healing and learn the craft of making medicinal teas. If you have an interest in building up your home apothecary or getting to know more about the healing herbs in our area, this is a great time to take that next step.

herbal Consultations

Many people are drawn to herbal medicine, but don’t know where to start or which remedy might be the best fit for them. Arise Botanicals is a resource for down-to-earth herbal consultations.  I emphasize compassionate and individualized care, focusing on the root causes instead of symptoms.  Emphasis is placed on gentle remedies, daily routines and meeting people where they’re at without judgment.  Some areas of specialization include:  anxiety, burnout, depression, reproductive health, digestion and skin issues.
