Mustard Seed Natural Living Center
We recently sat down with Salandrea, founder and master herbalist at The Mustard Seed Natural Living Center located in Nottingham, NH. Here’s a snippet from our conversation about her shop and the resources she provides for her customers.
Q: Tell us about the inspiration behind Mustard Seed.
Salandrea: “I have been working in the health industry for many years and truly love to formulate medicines and remedies. These remedies don’t cure anyone. People don’t cure anyone. I’m very cautious when people start saying I heal people. We can assist people on their journey of healing. We don’t heal. When it comes to your health and healing, lifestyle and diet changes are important. But doing it in a way that can be joyful.
Mustard seed is all-encompassing. It has a message. We are here to help you and we have awesome people here. Our staff is made up of pharmacists, herbalists, and even a Ph.D. in nursing. People walk into the herb room to mix their own stuff. Or they love to cook, so they buy the spices. We are there to plant little seeds about consciousness and being healthy or embracing your uniqueness and beauty. From one day to the next, it’s always different here. The underlying message is to let your spirit lead you.
We host wellness forums every week on our Facebook and love to give our customers the tools and information they need to make informed decisions about their wellness. If you don’t know what your body needs, go to someone.”
Q: How does CBD play a role at Mustard Seed?
S: “Most people that are new to it associate CBD with getting high and are not understanding it’s benefits or the fact that we naturally have these receptor sites in our bodies.
In all the CBD’s that are out there, I am very selective. If it’s not utilized in the body, if it’s not quality stuff, and if they’re not treating the planet with respect, I’m not going to sell it. With Coyote River products, their sustainability, personal approach, product quality, and affordability are all such important factors that spoke to me and I wanted it in my store.
Education is a big thing whether it’s on the floor or taking someone aside and informing them. We get that feedback and we see how people respond. It’s hard work but we have an excellent reputation and we’re going to keep it that way.”
There is so much good happening inside this 200-year-old barn. If you have the chance, stop in and say hi Salandrea and her team at Mustard Seed!
