Mission Statement

Clary Sage Herbarium’s mission is to promote local awareness and offer a sacred place of physical & emotional healing that reduces the dependence on conventional medicine. We want herbs and education to inspire motivation and belief in our own inherent healing powers. We think green! We use all bio-degradable packaging materials, and do our best to support local businesses for all our purchasing needs.

What makes you unique to your community?

We promote local awareness and offer a sacred place of physical and emotional healing. We strive to keep connected to the local herbalist community, schools, naturopathic practitioners, LMT’s, and acupuncturists. This allows us to offer an array of local healing resources. Additionally, we offer an ongoing discount to students in the herbal studies realm. We think green and recycle as much as possible. We buy local to help reduce our carbon footprint and support our local economy. We offer affordable and sliding scale classes on all sorts of topics including Ayurveda, perfume blending, guided meditations and medicine making.

What are frequent comments that you hear from your customers?

We often hear: “Wow! I came in feeling scattered, ungrounded and annoyed with my day but I feel so much better now, just being in here!”, “This place smells amazing! The smell lured me to walk up the pathway!”, “What is it I smell in here? Can I buy it?!”

What one lesson would you like the general public to learn about from herbs?

We want herbs and education to inspire and motivate a belief in our own inherent healing powers which, in return, will reduce our dependence on conventional (allopathic) medicine.

What kind of products do you carry?

We have a large supply of organic and wild harvested medicinal herbs, a selection of culinary spices, traditional teas including Mate, Pu’erh, and Jasmine Green Tea, as well as many medicinal house tea blends with fun names like “Sweet Adrenal”, “Healthy Ticker”, “Not Gonna Get Me” immunity tea. We have a nice selection of house made flower essences (with an option to have it custom made), essential oils (some wild crafted and distilled right here in Portland!) as well as magical anointing oils. We carry tinctures, local artisan made-chemical free body care products, smudging feathers, incense, pendulums, smoking herbs, sage bundles, palo santo, cedar, beeswax candles, Baraka’s handmade neti pots and salts, as well as their aromatherapy burners. We also stock medicine making supplies such as empty bottles and jars, bulk bee’s wax, emulsifying wax, hydrosols and several varieties of clays and resins.
