Welcome! I'm Stephanie

Welcome to the collective space! This is the heart of my home, and all are welcome. Pull up a chair, grab a comforting mug of herbal goodness, and let’s connect on a deeper level.

My own wellness journey began more than 15 years ago when I started reprogramming my health with seasonal, intuitive ingredients. My path led me to herbalism, where I learned how to weave herbs and flowers into my recipes for deeper well-being and connection. Feeling inspired and empowered, I started to handcraft many of the things I used to buy, like botanically infused potions and herbal nourishment, sprinkling in a whimsical dose of plant magic along the way. I eventually realized that dreaming up and brewing these recipes is like a healing spell in and of itself.

At My Tiny Laguna Kitchen, I sincerely believe that reconnecting with your body, your spirit, and with nature is possible for anyone, anywhere—even a total beginner in a tiny urban kitchen!
