Hello to you! I’m Natassja. I’m so glad that you are here.

My heart and home is in the Pacific Northwest where I work as an emergency dispatcher by night, and freelance writer by day. I’m a dog mom, ecstatic dancer, bird nerd, tree admirer, goddess worshiper, wild food forager, and herbal medicine enthusiast. I love craft beer, but a nice cup of tea is even better.

Hestia Speaks is a project of passion. Through the words that I write onto these digital pages I hope to offer inspiration and ideas to help my readers live a healthier and more inspired life. I post wildcraft guides featuring various plants that can be foraged from the wild (and sometimes even in the heart of a city), herbal remedies, ideas about growing your own food and herbs, and other flights of fancy.

Don’t forget to click that “follow” button on your way out, and consider joining my email list to receive free resources and updates now and then (never spam….I value your privacy as much as my own)! Those buttons are located at the bottom of this site.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
