We have big news!!

Hello Earthlings, we have big changes here at Roots of the Sun. As the seasons change so do we. As such, we have decided to focus fully on our retreat and in-person offerings, since we feel this is our best medicine, and honestly what I believe humanity needs right now more than ever is real connection! This sacred land that we are caretakers for deserves to be shared. We are excited about having intentional events and lots of herbal and ascension teachings and most importantly FUN! I believe fun is a necessary ingredient to a healthy human experience! That being said, we have decided to re-brand our offerings. A new name and intention feels right moving forward, because ultimately we have outgrown Roots of the Sun. The chapter was so beautiful and life-changing for us. We made so many great friends and memories that we will cherish forever. We are truly grateful for all your support while the shop was open, as well as our online shop. Our intention is to make more memories with you all, here in these beautiful Appalachian mountains. Stay tuned for our new look, new name, events, and offerings, we are super excited to share with you!

While I absolutely LOVE making herbal teas and products for you all, I am finding it increasingly hard to find ethically sourced ingredients and the time to keep up with manufacturing and managing our retreat/homestead/event space. I am a little sad to say that I will no longer be offering teas and products on a regular basis on the online shop, however there will be all the Roots of the Sun’s recipes coming out soon on our new website. We do hope you all understand and will come on up for a mountain escape with us soon! So much love and Gratitude to you all!

Please make sure to subscribe with your preferences to our email list as we change more into an event space and destination community.

Plant Blessings & Infinite Gratitude,

Destini & Jake
