"Practicing herbal wellness is an act of resistance as much as it is an act of self-care."
Triple Moon Alchemy Herb Shop was born in 2020 from the home apothecary of Loukeisa Denise Edwards, herbalist, healer, and community-crowned medicine woman. Growing up on the hills of Lincoln-Lemington in Pittsburgh’s East End, the women in Denise’s life, especially her grandmother, had a natural home remedy for every scraped knee, high fever, and upset stomach. Recalling her grandmother, Denise sought out herbal remedies when her young son came down with a rare sickness that resisted regular medicines. The success of her treatments led her to study herbalism and natural remedies with, among others, the Herbal Academy and the Chestnut School of Herbs. Triple Moon Alchemy now offers ‘all organic, all the time’ teas, tinctures, balms, butters, soaps, herbal bath soaks and more that target specific areas of health and healing. Each item is carefully prepared by hand to exacting proportions, using locally-sourced herbs, roots, flowers, and other ingredients including many samples harvested from Denise’s own garden.
