LOAM IS A CLINICAL HERBALISM PRACTICE AND PLANT MEDICINE STORE
We provide herbalist-formulated bio-regional products to cultivate wellness and joy. By sharing our own knowledge of plants, we hope to empower others to consider their connection to the earth.
Loam was founded in 2019 by Halley Strongwater. Halley is a clinical herbalist trained at Milagro School of Herbal Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is a lifelong gardener, self-trained botanist and has spent countless hours with her hands in the dirt, plants and trees.
ACKNOWLEDGING THE LAND KNOWN AS PRESENT DAY SANTA FE
Loam is based in O’ga P’ogeh Owingeh (White Shell Water Place), present day Santa Fe, NM on the unceded ancestral territories of the Tewa people, who continue to live in and maintain deep connections to this place today. You can learn more about Tewa culture at the Poeh Cultural Center.
We honor the land through thoughtful stewardship, and the traditions of plant medicine passed through time immemorial by those who came before us. We commit to continuous learning, active support for local indigenous communities and continuing the tradition of passing knowledge of plant medicine to future generations.
