Allison Austin, Duluth Folk School instructor

Allison Austin

I’m Allison, owner of Birch Botanicals- my handmade organic skincare products and herbal remedies line. I’ve been a plant and nature lover ever since I could explore my backyard woods as a young girl, I was able to turn what I love into my everyday work. My mission in creating Birch Botanicals was to bring clean, simple, and healthy products to you in their purest form- with as little gap from nature to bottle as possible. All of my products are made with 100% plant-based ingredients, and are good for both you and the planet. I forage most of the plant ingredients I use in my products, and teach herbalism classes throughout Northern Minnesota. It is so important for every human to know how to utilize nature around them in a way that helps protect and promote the health of the environment, which is why teaching others about plants and how to utilize them is one of my favorite and most meaningful parts of what I do.
