Predominately self-taught, Lippman has been interested in the medicinal properties of plants and herbs since she was a child.

“Herbs are a great way to keep you healthy. I want to expose people to an alternative way of health and wellness through the power of plants,” says Lippman of her goal.

She creates her own formulas, using herbs and plants from her own garden.

Both artist and an herbalist, Lippman considers creating formulas an artistic process.

Wendy’s Wonder Botanicals offers products handcrafted in her kitchen, in small batches.

All are from her own recipes, using her own infused oils. She also conducts herb walks.

To contact Lippman, call 828-281-9037.
