About Sandy Jeudwine - The Village Herbalist
Sandy Jeudwine is a treehugging, plant loving herbalist from far Northern NSW. Rooted firmly in the vitalist herbal tradition Sandys deep joy is growing, wildcrafting and making medicines.
After observing a trend away from traditional herbal knowledge and a move towards more pharmaceutical style prescribing, Sandy has been on a mission to reconnect people with plants and the philosophies and skills of traditional herbal medicine.
In July 2019 Sandy opened “The Village Herbalist", a unique retail herbal dispensary, clinic and medicine making space in Alstonville. She practises patient centred care and always aims to treat people rather than diseases.
She is the founder of Australias largest herbal medicine practitioner Facebook group and is the co-creator of “Root and Branch” the first gathering of traditional herbal medicine practitioners and students in Australia.
