Willow Rain Native Plant Sanctuary


I love the whole process of making wreaths... harvesting the plants, growing the flowers, drying bundles, weaving the wreaths. I am blessed to be able to do this work.

For over four decades Willow Rain Herbal Goods have been crafted in harmony with Nature. Wild native plants are gathered with Earth-honoring ethics at our Ozark Sanctuary...sustainably collected never over-harvested. Care is given to replant and reseed. Herbs are grown organically and in their natural ecological niche.  

I offer you my skills in herb crafting to tend your body, mind and spirit. I have walked the Ozark woodlands, ridge-tops and meadows for many seasons hunting the wisdom of the wild plants.  

Being a naturalist, I am intrigued by the mystical aspects of nature - the elements, indigenous plants, animal encounters and wild weather.  As I continue to learn about life, Nature’s ways seem more and more wise. Go to the trees, wildflowers and rivers as often as you can. The elements of Nature help nourish and heal us.

deep peace of the shining stars to you,

Pat Tuholske, wildcrafter and wreath artist
