This unique concept I adapted from a piece owned by a friend. Being an herbalist, medicine-maker, and one who uses plants for spiritual purposes, I wanted something special that I could use for my personal gatherings of Western Mugwort, Sage Brush, etc. Ready to be customized by YOU... bead work, embroidery, painting, tooling... how will YOU make your Herb Gatherer YOUR Sacred tool? Slung around your shoulder across your body, this deerskin and leather piece has a main loop which holds a pair of scissors (included), or your favorite knife, pruners, or other harvesting/gardening tool. The straps that come down from the main body are used to tie your bundles of herbs that you are harvesting, eliminating bags/baskets, keeping hands free.

Works great for leaf/stem stalks, branches, stick-like roots, and flower stems. GREAT for gathering for Smudge stick-making - Create your bundles in the field! If tied properly while harvesting (tying around stem end so plant tops point downward), a fully-loaded herb gatherer can be hung up directly for easy drying. (I have a personal spot in our local foothills where both sagebrush and juniper grow wild, and being one who likes to make 'mixed smudge bundles' with 2 or more plants, I can pick my sage and evergreen, arrange it as I pick it, then wrap the bundle with a strap and tie off. I usually make them large, and I can fill up every strap with a large bundle, which hang around waist-level on me.)
