Max Turk is a Jewish queer human who is passionate about weaving wisdom from her ancestry, plant medicine, and botanical beauty as to offer something meaningful. She found tremendous inspiration in the vast healing capabilities of plants through her own life experiences and now integrates her relationships with people and the landscape through her Apothecary line called Roots & Crowns. This line is mindfully crafted using ethically sourced ingredients, and consists of herbal remedies such as tincture-based bitters, botanical skincare, and natural perfume. Though Roots & Crowns began as a hobby while earning her Masters in Leadership for Sustainability Education at PSU, Max is managing the rapid growth of Roots & Crowns by integrating her academic studies with her intuitive craft. From the positive feedback she has received from customers worldwide, she's inspired to keep creating products that share the holistic aspects of plant healing and flower magic with others, making them accessible, and empowering anyone to try them. Her intention, simply put, is "plant power to the people.”
