Sarah’s tertiary studies were guided by growing up on a rural farm, her passion for the natural world and the healing properties of whole foods – plants, herbs, fats and oils – and her reverence and wonder of the human body and soul, which has that innate ability to heal and create creation itself.
Stemming from this reverence, Sarah founded Temptress Apothecary a herbal enterprise that formulates of herbal healthcare blends that are symbiotic with nature and that can be used in everyday ritual, reverence and pleasure in the home. Sarah also founded and is the owner and Director of the Sacred Women’s Way, an organisation that sits in part of a global remembering, a re-emergence of taking back womb consciousness and the ushering in of a new paradigm of awakening our divine feminine on the planet. The foundation of Sacred Women’s Way is in curating pathways for women and men to awaken their potential, and innate power through ancient ritual and embodied practices. She is currently, and will always, be guided and mentored by many wise women, continuing her own growth with teachers in areas of herbalism, meditation, womb consciousness, and breathwork.
