***Update! No Market Saturday! 


***Update! No market today, Saturday 3/25/17!

I am on the upswing, but I know deep down that I do not have the energy to go to market today. It takes a lot in this fast paced, goal oriented, business first world to listen to and to honor that voice that resides deep down inside of each of us telling us when to say no. I know that for me this has been a long struggle, and I am working diligently to get more in touch with this voice. Sometimes I hear it loudest when I am physically unwell…

So, as I humbly say no to the market, I also want to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to any of you in need of herbal remedies and love. I want you all to know that I always have products available at the Apothecary. Just call or text me at 808-782-5406, and we can coordinate your visit to get what you need.

I will be at market next in April: Wednesday 4/5/17 — Friday 4/7/17 — Saturday 4/8/17 which I will announce more thoroughly at the beginning of the month.

Thank you all for understanding, and may this validate your own need to listen deeply to that voice that knows what is best for us in every situation, and may you have the strength to follow that voice.


Hello everyone! Hope you are all enjoying these first few days of Spring!

I wanted to update y’all on this week’s markets. I will not be at Wednesday’s or Friday’s markets, as I have been feeling a bit under the weather. I am hoping that all my herbal allies will help me nip this feeling quickly in the bud, so that I can make it to the Saturday market! Keep your eye here on the blog or check our Facebook Page to see when we will be at Market this week.

If you have ever wondered what an herbalist takes when she is feeling under the weather, I can tell you that I have been taking my Cold and Flu Tincture which is immune supporting and antibacterial and antiviral with Echinacea and Goldenseal Root! I’ve also been taking Elderberry Syrup to support my immunity and give my throat a nice soothing coat. Finally, I drink LOTS of herbal tea. Mostly I’ve been drinking my Immuni-tea Blend with an added bit of Goldenseal Root Powder every pot or so. I get lots of rest, fresh air and tend to burn sage to kill germs that reside in the house.

I’d love to hear what some of you do when you are under the weather, so comment below!

Hope you all stay happy and healthy!

Cold and Flu Needs at the Local Farmer’s Markets!

Today and tomorrow are the last two Farmer’s Markets for the Manifest Nest until March! I just can’t believe how fast this year is already passing! And spring is definitely here at the Beaches, as my peach tree is in full bloom!

Today is the Grand Opening of the Atlantic Beach City Market, aka the ABC Market! I am honored to be participating! The ABC Market is located at New Friendship Church on the corner of Mayport and Dutton Island Roads. Market Hours are 3-6pm.

Tomorrow is the Beaches Green Market at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach on the corner of 3rd Street and Florida Blvd. Market Hours are 2-5pm.

It would appear that there are many of you feeling a bit under the weather so, I’ve been diligently making your cold and flu needs.

I have a new batch of Fire Cider Tonic and a Fire Cider Tonic Especial that has fresh, organic turmeric root in it! The taste is nearly the same, but the benefits are increased. Both will help to keep your digestive system and circulatory system pumping, while also containing many anti-virals and anti-bacterials to fight off any germs. The turmeric root will also help with inflammation throughout the body. It is also full of antioxidants and a powerful immune enhancer.

I have Elderberry Syrup and Immuni-tea full of immune boosting herbs to help your body fight any germs that may have gotten you already and to help your body prevent them taking ahold. I know I’ve been taking it 2-3x a day, as more and more people have been coming by sick to the apothecary!

I also have Cold and Flu tincture, which I believe to be our strongest cold and flu remedy. These are the herbal big guns. When you know you are sick this tincture can really help your body fight. The goldenseal root is one of nature’s natural antibiotics and the two kinds of echinacea help dry up mucus and boost your immune system.

I also have lots of other lovely herbal products, and will have a bit of the garden’s abundance with me! Come on by and see all the things our local farmers, bakers, and other artisans have to share with you!


Midweek Market Today! 

Today – Midweek Market! Bull Park in Atlantic Beach from 3-6p. We’ve got lots of new batches of tea we’d love to share with you! It’s a bit blustery but still really quite lovely. Hope to see you there!

Beaches Green Market in Neptune Beach at Jarboe Park 2-5p! 

It’s going to be a brisk one but The Manifest Nest will be at the market today with hot Chakra Blend tea and many more teas to take home and warm up your day! 

And don’t forget elderberry syrup to support your immune system as it adapts to the ever changing weather and many germs going around! 
I’ve also got another new offering for today! It’s a Lavender Rose Facial Spray! It’s perfect for balancing skin, soothing chapped, dry skin, great for healing and preventing acne and as a general toner and can be used to cool hot flashes, which we know also happen on chilly days!

Hope to see you!
