Brown Bear Herbs--About Arati Ursus


 Arati selling herbs out of her basket.

Brown Bear Herbs is creation of herbalist Arati Ursus. She has studied herbalism, primarily with Matthew Wood, for over 15 years and practiced for over 10. She is very motivated to help people feel empowered and regain control of their health and lives by conquering addictions and improving health. 

Why cigarettes? Arati's herbal guide, Matthew Wood, explained to her that one could never get someone to quit smoking (tobacco) without understanding why they smoke. This prompted a series of smoking blends intended to address common types of smokers: social smokers, pack a day smokers, sensitive souls who use tobacco medicine to protect them energetically. Many people have reported having used Brown Bear smokes to transform their cigarette smoking into a ritual that does not involve addiction to tobacco. As a former smoker herself, Arati knows how hard it can be to quit, so she was thrilled to get this feedback. 

Herbal Consultations: Arati is available for herbal consultations for health problems. She sensitively collects your health information, does tongue diagnosis, and pulse testing of herbs (in person only). She will education you on herbs used to treat your health. The herbs recommended are typically not offered in cigarette form. They are usually teas, tinctures, homeopathic remedies and/or gem and flower essences--whichever medicines come up and are most conducive to you taking them and benefiting from them.  You can learn more about her practices through her videos on instagram and youtube and through the Brown Bear Herbs blog.

Initial consultations are $90 for 90-120 minutes. 

Follow up visit (short/minor acute illness) $20 for 20-30 min

Follow up visit (long/chronic illness) $60 for 60-90 min 

Arati may be able to vend you some or all recommended herbs directly. If not she will help you source them. Custom herbal blends by Arati tend to be affordable because she can mix multiple herbs into one tea or tincture. 

You can purchase consultation time in the Teas & Wellness section or directly through Arati. Consultations can be done by distance via zoom, phone, etc.
