Frannie Parkinson

"Originally from Richmond, Virginia in the USA, I have spent the last four years living and working in Chile growing medicinal plants and vegetables and making natural medicine &  cosmetics. I am passionate about medicinal plants for their ability to deepen our connection with nature and with ourselves. I believe in the power of medicinal plants to heal us inside and out and it is my  mission  to share my knowledge with other women so that then too can have autonomy over their own health. I especially love learning about herbalism through the lens of Chilean culture and specifically that of Patagonia. I am certified as an Intermediate Herbalist by Herbal Academy and a graduarte of the Women's Herbal Medicine Course by Dr. Aviva Romm . In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and running with my Yaqui dog."
