Welcome to Earthsense!

Earthsense Herbals and Gift Gallery is a small family-owned business located in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Using the beautiful San Juan Mountains as our inspiration, we handcraft a wide selection of organic herbal products and ‘whimsical but meaningful’ artwork. Our goal is to provide high-quality yet affordable items that reflect our own interests as they change and evolve.

This site serves as a virtual tour of Earthsense, an overview of our products and procedures. In order to spend as much time as possible with customers in the store, as well as out in the forest gathering ingredients and materials, we do not maintain a website where we can accept orders over the internet. However, we are happy to answer telephone inquiries during our normal business hours!

About Us

Lake McCullough is a certified herbalist who graduated with honors from the American College of Healthcare Sciences’ Diploma in Herbal Studies program. She formulates and blends the herbal products sold in the store, from soaps and lotions to therapeutic liquid extracts and teas. Fascinated by the botany, chemistry, and pharmacology of plants, she continues to study in these areas, while also enjoying the simple fun of creating and mixing recipes. Her approach to herbology focuses on using scientific research as well as traditional knowledge to formulate blends targeted toward supporting the body’s own natural processes of healing.

About Us

Carolyn McCullough creates Earthsense’s extensive gallery of fine artwork. An artist with many years of experience in painting and sculpture, she also explores and experiments with a variety of other media. She draws inspiration, and often raw materials, from the surrounding mountains and forests.

 Tom works behind the scenes -- when he's not out kayaking -- building, repairing, and in general keeping us honest. He's a great herb harvester, also!
