Calling all plant loving, body care crafting, medicine making, and backyard gardening herb enthusiasts! We are thrilled to introduce a one-of-a-kind herbal marketplace and community to you all. We have teamed up with our herbal kin down at Mountain Rose Herbs in Eugene, OR. to offer this awesome giveaway as a warm welcome to our new fans. We’re so glad you are here! Make sure to hop over to the forum and introduce yourselves! We love to dish about herbs!

Welcome to Poppy Swap!

So, what is Poppy Swap?

Think of Poppy Swap as the Etsy of herbal products. You can browse the site for amazing holistic medicinals, herbal edibles, bodycare and cosmetics, aromatherapy, pet care products, and many more high quality goodies – all handcrafted by small-scale, cottage-industry herbalists. Plus, every creation offered through the site is made with natural ingredients that have been produced in a sustainable manner. Too awesome, right?

Whether selling your homemade goods as an independent vendor or supporting the livelihoods of other skilled herbalists, Poppy Swap will connect you to an inspiring DIY community of sustainable commerce and herbal education.

The Giveaway!

Poppy Swap will join us at the Rootstalk Festival this September to share new and exciting community building tools that bring plants to the people! In anticipation of this amazing gathering, several Poppyswappers have offered their lovingly made herbal crafts to help spread the word. There are two prizes up for grabs!
