The Still Room Story
A still room was originally a room off of the kitchen in a house where herbs were dried, medicinals were made for the family, and even alcohol was distilled. As modern medicine developed, homes had less need for the medicinal aspect, and instead went to their local apothecary or pharmacy. That with the ease of a grocery store to collect herbs made a still room unnecessary.
A movement in recent years has sparked a desire to return to these older traditions. Using herbs and tinctures to support health is a preferred way for many people to develop their own health prevention and and wellness practices.
There is a second meaning behind the still room which is also about finding ways to generate stillness with so many people experiencing such busy lifestyles.
Through holistic treatments to wellness workshops, The Still Room is here to support and educate you on your journey to awaken your inner stillness.
