Welcome! I’m Cassy Lynn, proprietress of Oak Moon Rising! I am a native of Greencastle Pennsylvania and a current resident of Chambersburg Borough with my husband & our little Lhasa Apso, Pippin
Path to Herbalism
I was introduced to herbalist Susan Weed in 2005 while struggling with the day to day roller coaster of trying to conceive. In 2013, I began my journey on the herbalists path with a focus in women & children’s herbals. My studies began in April of 2013 with renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar through Sage Mountain in Vermont and continued with Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine & One Willow Apothecaries in 2018.
After 14 years of trying & failing to conceive naturally, we decided to seek the assistance of a professionally trained fertility specialist. In May 2017, we began treatment at Shady Grove Fertility. To date, we have had 2 failed IUI’s, 1 cancelled FET due to high genetic embryo abnormalities and 1 FET that ended in a miscarriage. We continue to trust in the Lord’s guidance & blessings in our life as we move forward on our path for a little family.
Going through this journey has shifted my perspective of the fragile balance between our herbal allies and the pathways of modern science and how important it is to utilize the wisdom of both. My promise is to continue to provide quality, balanced herbals that help support both mama & baby through the transitions that come with the arrival of a baby moon.
The Oak is a symbol of life, strength, wisdom & community with her acorns being a symbol of fertility. A full moon is a time when healing potential is at it’s peak & a rising moon announces the promise of a new beginning.
According to Celtic folklore, the Oak Moon is at the height of Midsummer during Summer Solstice when the day is long and when the growth of all things is encouraged. It is said that the Oak is a haven for restoration & inner peace.
