Herban Artisans

Herbal Wellness Products, Education, Consultations, & Community

Herban Artisans was formed by friends Shannon Renne and Beth Galantha in 2017 with the goal of blending our passions for herbal wellness and art. We craft high-quality small-batch herbal preparations, educate through community classes, offer herbal consultations, and create art inspired by nature.

About Herban Artisans


Holistic Assessments for Optimal Health & Wellness

Herbs on Wooden Spoon

Each of our bodies has traveled different paths and gathered different physical, psychological, and spiritual imprints from our experiences. An herbal consultation accounts for this uniqueness in its collaborative, iterative process. Please keep in mind that an herbalist is not a doctor and so cannot diagnose or prescribe. She can, however, make plant-medicinal suggestions (e.g., teas, tinctures, topical applications) to help your body find balance and return to its optimal state of function.

Shannon’s offerings

Shannon Renne is a clinical herbalist with 5 years of formal education in plant medicine and over 10 years of experience working with diverse bodies and needs, including addressing acute and chronic illnesses. She is also comfortable working with most prescriptions.


An intake consultation with Shannon costs† $125 and consists of a 60–90 minute, in-person discussion of:

  • your health concerns and goals, health history, lifestyle, and any past trauma;

  • identification of organ system excesses and deficiencies;

  • tissue state analysis; and

  • individualized recommendations of corresponding, balancing herbal applications.


Follow-up consultations with Shannon generally last 30–45 minutes and cost $1/minute. Together in person or via phone or email (as you choose), you will review your personalized herbal suggestions and adjust as desired.


Each individual will require different herbs, and it is up to them what they choose to try (the cost of recommended herbs is not included in the consultation cost). Typical suggestions average $30–40 of herbal products, which the individual may obtain independently or from Shannon.


†Payment accepted via cash, check, or PayPal. If you cannot afford the cost of the consultations, please contact me in advance to discuss possible payment or trade options. I strongly believe in accessible care for everyone.
