Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is a small herbaceous perennial that serves exquisitely both in culinary and medicinal disciplines. It includes grey-green leaves and long lilac or lavender-colored flowering shoots. The leaves can attain the pinnate shape or be simple measuring 1 to 2 inches. Its flower can be seen on shoots or spikes and can reach a height of about 1-3 feet.

Lavender is employed to cater to a lot of disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, restlessness, depression, acne, and so forth. It is also used to promote hair growth. Also, it fights fungal infections, normalizes blood pressure and heart rate, and deals with countless skin ailments.


For millennia, Mugwort has been correlated with the summer solstice and full moon. The dried sprigs of Mugwort leaves and its glowing embers and smoke are wafted around the participant or ritual place for consecration. Mugwort is quite suitable for spiritual cleansing, healing, protection, trance, vivid dreams, and intuitive development.
Mugwort is psychoactive incense that fortifies psychic awareness, opens up the pineal eye (third eye), and helps us connect with the spiritual realms. Medicinally, it is used to quieten stress and anxiety. It is used to cleanse bowels, aid in digestion, relieve gas, soothe cramps, and treat loss of appetite.

Mayernik Kitchen was created in 2015, by husband and wife, Matt and Shannon, and since has grown with the offering of 75+ plant medicine products, workshops and classes held monthly, and an online community of eager learners. We invite you to join the community via social media and through our bi-weekly newsletter, where we share our gardens, harvests & medicines with you.

Nestled in the suburbs of Passaic County, Matt and Shannon grow over 100 species of plants in their backyard garden, which then turn into the plant medicine they hand-craft and sell in the Mayernik Kitchen Market. With over 10+ years of herbal experience between the couple, they thrive on making products for their community, as well as those across the country, to encourage a natural, healthy lifestyle.

Herbalism has shaped the lives of Matt and Shannon and is incorporated into their everyday lives. Both avid creators in the kitchen, the couple try to incorporate plant medicine into their meals by cooking with the herbs, preserving them for the cooler months, or fermenting the gardens bounty.
