Plant medicine for people who give a f*ck
Our individual bodies are connected to the ecological, political, and economic wreckage of late capitalism. We each feel it in our own way—pain and fatigue, trouble sleeping, digestive issues, chronic infections, anxiety and depression—plain old feeling bad.
Let’s be real, no healing modality focused on 1:1 work can dismantle the systems that cause this suffering. The wellness industry’s relentless pursuit of personal optimization is clearly not going to get us to a more just and joyful world.
For that, of course, we need collective action—each one of us contributing in our own way. Plant medicine has something special to offer because it is by nature a medicine of relationship, of reciprocal care, of connection to the more than human world.
The Long Spell crafts healing relationships in service of collective liberation
Working closely with clinical energetic herbalist Gina Badger, you’ll attend to your pain, build trust in your body, and gather the courage of your conviction—so you can show up brilliant and generous for your work in the world.
You + me + the plants = your healing dream team
The Long Spell is 6 months of all-inclusive herbal care anchored in biweekly one-on-ones with clinical energetic herbalist Gina Badger & lovingly prepared, ethically sourced plant medicines

Powerful plant medicines & supportive daily practices to address the patterns underlying your symptoms
Intro Call Our work together begins with a 2-hour intake appointment where you have ample time to share your story and your health challenges. We’ll dig deep, making sure to understand all aspects of what’s going on for you.
Treatment Mapping Following your intake, we’ll over your holistic assessment and treatment map. After this appointment, you’ll get your first care package of customized herbal medicines.
Monthly Clinical Calls Hour-long calls to track how you’re doing as the plants work their magic, making connections between physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. We’ll check in with your intentions, take note of shifts, and celebrate your good work.
Monthly Coaching Calls Half-hour-long calls focused on the how of plant medicine—daily rituals and simple practices to develop a partnership with the plants that will support you for years to come.
Monthly Plant Medicine Care Packages Each month you’ll work with a custom herbal protocol just for you, prepared intentionally with ethically sourced whole-plant medicines—lovingly packed and shipped to your door. Preparations include tinctures, teas, and/or topicals such as salves and creams as needed.
Email Support When questions, concerns, or new symptoms come up in between our calls—or if you want to share some good news—my inbox is open to you!
Resource Library If you’re feeling called to nerd out on your own, you can explore a growing resource library on topics like how to take tinctures, intro to the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, and basic materia medica (i.e. the plants and their medicine), plus guided meditations to deepen your relationship with the plants.
Working with herbalism embeds you in a network that extends to growers, medicine-makers and traditional knowledge-keepers, to the plants themselves and their crawling and furry allies, to nutrient and water cycles. In other words, it invites you into a political ecology of care.
Medicine Made Just For You
Our health struggles can seem like they’re just annoyances distracting us from our real work—in fact, attending to them is often the key to our healing. The Long Spell could be a good fit for you if you’re looking for holistic support with issues such as:
- burnout, sleep issues, anxiety, depression
- dietary intolerances, bloating, indigestion
- inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, allergies, eczema, psoriasis
- chronic infections and post-viral conditions
The Long Spell is individualized support to help you go deep with the plants and with yourself. You will get the most out of the program if you’re in a place to show up with intention, curiosity, and a willingness to slow down.
