Mountain Spirit Herbals • Denise Joy
Drawing on over three decades of expertise, Denise Joy specializes in traditional herbal medicine and dietary supplements, honoring the path of life connected with place and community. Since 1985, she has steadily built her business as the owner of Mountain Spirit Herbal Co, a home-based business located on nine lush acres in the Pacific Northwest. In this capacity, she is responsible for operating her small apothecary, offering consultation services to her customers, and growing and crafting high-quality herbal products, including oils, balms, tinctures, herbal teas, creams, dry herbs, and more.
As a fourth-generation herbalist —and the only surviving descendant of an oral herbal tradition passed from woman to woman—Ms. Joy’s vocational path was passed to her by her great-grandmother. As a commitment to her field, she has been active with several industry-related organizations, including the American Herbalists Guild. Likewise dedicated to civic advocacy, Ms. Joy contributes to the Port Townsend Farmers’ Market and teaches local at-risk youth, and others in her community, about herbal medicine.
