Longview, Washington resident, Shannon Mesneak, opened her new shop, Let's Be Holistic, herbal medicine and more, located at Merk 1339 Commerce, Suite 110, on December 8, 2018 just in time for the holiday season. A unique feature of the shop is the “Herb Wall” with more than 70 loose herbs and teas that can be mixed and matched, infused and used for decoctions.
The shop is the only one of its kind in the Longview area between Portland and Seattle and she is delighted to be able to share the experience of taste and smell with those who enter her lovely shop. She especially loves developing special yummy teas from her organic and sustainably grown tea varieties that include a bit of something medicinal. “It’s sort of the spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down approach,” says Shannon.
The shop has an office space where Shannon can meet with customers and a teaching space for classes. The first class in her shop, was January 12 and featured retired US Army Colonel, Phil Blair MD, h
