Frequently Asked Questions:
I'm looking for CBD what brands do you carry?

We do not carry any CBD for internal use (no drops, no vapes etc). 

For internal use CBD we recommend you visit Panama Reds in Homer on Heath Street just below Pioneer Avenue.

I'm looking for Marijuana, do you have flower?

We do not carry any THC Marijuana products. We recommend you visit Uncle Herb's in Homer on Ocean Drive near the Farmer's Market.

Can you recommend something for my ailment / issue?

As we are not licensed healthcare professionals we cannot diagnose your ailment or prescribe treatments for you. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.


In store you can find books from reputable herbalists and physicians, these books are available for purchase or you can look at them in store for help making your decision.

Carolyn offers private consultations.  Please inquire in person to schedule.

I make this awesome salve/tincture/jewlery etc, will Woda carry it in store?

We are open to meeting other plant people and makers.  Our customers love locally made products and we are proud to offer a venue for crafters to get their products into people's hands and homes.

Please contact us at 


Beyond selecting items that fit Woda's overall mission a central element we consider with our inventory is labeling. We highly value our customer's ability to understand - on their own: who made something, what its specific components are, and what preparation occurred. 

Details we want to see: botanical (latin) plant names, volume in each container (weight, fluid ounces etc), crafter's name / brand / contact.  We do stock a variety of adhesive labels, sheet label purchase and printing inquiries are welcome.


Please be prepared with your prices and estimates of available inventory. 

What is an Apothecary?

This term is commonly used to refer to shops that stock materials for healing.  Woda's focus as an apothecary is maintaining a foundational formulary of medicinal herbs.  Further, in the traditional sense of Apothecary we prepare custom blends of tea or tinctures to order.

An Apothecary role differs from a clinical herbalist role.  A clinical herbalist meets with a person in private to discuss health concerns, often performing an extensive intake questionnaire and asking detailed questions about a person's life and health.  An Apothecary may prepare herbs in concert with a clinic herbalist, or the same individual may hold both distinct roles.

Can you special order something for me?

We are happy to research your request.  Be advised that we source from a limited number of reputable suppliers.  Due to freight costs, we will combine your special order with the next bulk order, please contact us for a timeline.
