About the Founder

Arati Ursus, founder of Brown Bear Herbs, began connecting with plants when she was getting her master's degree in nursing and healthcare practice. Already a meditator and sensitive to other life forms, this led her into a long journey of discovering plant medicine, healing herself and helping others heal and regain well being. 

Her approach to making herbal blends is to look at how the herbs affect the individual physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually using Traditional Western Herbalism.


She sends big Thank You's to her meditation teacher: Shri Anandi Ma; Matthew Wood, her favorite herbalist ever; Scott Kloos for introducing her to plant meditation; Deborah Frances, ND, Susun Weed, Rosemary Gladstar, Juliette de Bairacli Levy, many other amazing herbalists...and in general to the paths of Kundalini Maha yoga and Kundalini yoga.
