Hi, I'm Mel

I'm a clinical herbalist, environmental educator, mother, wilderness therapist, podcast host on The Herbalist's Path, and the founder of Mountain Mel's Essential Goods. I live in the foothills of Mount Hood, Oregon with my family and our fur babies!

I am super passionate about teaching mommas to use plants as medicine in safe and effective ways, so that there can be an herbalist in every home... AGAIN! It's all about inspiring you to take better care of our planet, through taking better care of yourself & your family.

Get To Know Mel



I Love t!

“Mel is like a shiny radiant herbal fairy, and all I want to do is focus and absorb, and be a part of the hum- her energy is so big and amazing! Its so obvious her whole heart and soul is in it, and that she cares so deeply about sharing- a wise sage, that isn't boring! It’s fun to listen to her, and hear what's coming next. I appreciate how she lightens the tone, and keeps it relaxed, fun, and full of info. And really, I'm a seeker- I can't stop eating information, lol. I'm a how does it tick type, so knowing about immunity is blowing my mind. I love it. Seriously, this is amazing- I took the afternoon off, so I could dive in!!! YAY!!! 💚 SO grateful for Mel. Really.


- Amanda S. Mom of 2, Yoga Instructor & Herb Student

Mel Is My Favorite Teacher!

"Mel's enthusiasm for plants is infectious. Her classes feel more like a fun gathering than a learning activity, keeping everyone engaged and not feeling like you are being overwhelmed with information, but absorbing it all at the same time. Phrases such as 'Calendula is my friendula' are forever etched in my brain. Her classes have definitely had a positive impact on the health of myself and my family. Things such as elderberry syrup and fire cider have become staples in my household that we make every sick season thanks to her classes. Mel is my favorite teacher and I am thankful for every lesson she has taught me."


- Cari G. mom of 2
