Jamaa Herbal Apothecary

Medicine & Healing in the Way of Our Ancestors

Jamaa Birth Village and the Herbal Apothecary was created by Tru through a vision sparked in Africa. Our goal is to authentically re-integrate African & African-American traditional care practices, decolonize our ways of birthing and well-being, to bring about generational health, wellness and longevity from pregnancy & beyond.

Tru, who has practiced as a community herbalist since 2009, realized a need to provide expectant families experiencing mild health concerns & families wishing to maintain thriving health, with gentle holistic, herbal & nutritional therapy from a cultural perspective rooted right in their community.

Traditionally, an Apothecary was the center of every village & community, and provided patients, Midwives & Physicians with herbs, botanicals, oils and medicinals in the olden days. Modernly we have pharmacies which neglect to provide our communities with organic, sustainably grown herbs and supplements that provide cultural healing and remedies for true health & wellness.

Our Apothecary is:

  • Accessible
  • Affordable
  • Available to everyone

Herbs & Supplements in our Apothecary include:

Locally grown, ethically wildcrafted, organic and of high quality herbs, essential oils, supplements, nutritional food items, body care & breastfeeding care items. We also have a DIY Bulk herb section where you can select, weigh, package and purchase your herbs on the spot at our Ferguson, Location.

Herbs & supplements can be purchased during care appointments or by walking in during open hours.
