Buy Cottonwood Salve - Foraged
About Following Cairns

Hello, I’m Leya (pronunciation: Star Wars) the forager, baker, and herbalist behind Following Cairns. I reside in the Dakota Oyate homelands of Minnesota. All products contain a sustainably foraged element from the midwest region.

I am a beginner herbalist, with a 100 hour certificate from Herban Roots Apprenticeship completed in 2021. 
Baked goods are available for local pick-up only. These products are homemade and not subject to state inspection. Certified under the Minnesota Cottage Food law, which prohibits shipping sales.
When foraging I always follow rules of reciprocity including:
– Never pick the first you see, in that way you ensure you will never have picked the last.
– Say a prayer of thanks to the Creator.
– Give back to the area by picking up nearby trash, managing a few displaced species crowding nearby, or writing your local/state/federal officials regarding public land back.
