A little about the Apothecary

The Little Herb Shoppe was created to share herbal remedies within the Western Herbalism tradition, which teaches us that the Mind – Body – Spirit – Health connection is deeply linked to the health of our natural environment. We offer a variety of quality herbs and supplements also used in other herbal traditions, such as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and the Ayurvedic Tradition. Shop events include classes for learning how to incorporate herbs into your daily life as foods, teas and by cooking with culinary spices. We are passionate about helping folks reconnect to the natural world, a bit of wildness, and an inner 'knowing' how to work with the plants.

To love, care for & respect them... And themselves in doing so.

Classes & workshops are held at The Little Shop in Littleton, NH and up at The Lakota Botanical Sanctuary, a collaboration of neighbors in our protected forest in Vermont.

Sign up for our free herbal E-newsletter to stay tuned in for the fun & educational events we offer! 

Thank you for your purchases, consultations and attendance at our classes, which supports our Botanical Sanctuary where we educate folks to plant & care for endangered plants in the forests.

Please come introduce yourself.... and remember to drink herbal tea!

We're in the process of creating our Burdock Fund that supports locals in need to have access to reduced or free herbal care &consultations. More information is posted about that on our Consultations Page. We hope to develop this program into an Herbal Clinic. Interested in participating? Please contact us! Lets' create a community support system.


Little Herb Shoppe Staff

Kim Hudson, community folk herbalist, began studying herbs in the early 90's with a book by Juliette de Bairacli Levy, The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog And Cat. She first learned the plants first by weeding the pleurisy patch in the herb gardens on Cape Cod! Learning about the healing power of plants through Juliette's book changed her approach to life. She later pursued more trainings and continually attends teachings, and constantly learns from customers and the beloved life-affirming plants.

She created The Little Herb Shoppe in Dec 2011 (opened April 2012). Her vision is to empower people to nourish themselves deeply through healing relationships with help from the plants. She chose Main Street Littleton as home for the shop to help grow public awareness about quality herbal medicine & plant conservation. Her background include healing work & massage, Shamanism, Yoga, and of course herbs, this new space on Main Street called to her to create an Apothecary dedicated to herbal medicine and to the plants.

Influenced by teachings of Western herbalism, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), indigenous teachings, Kim offers mind, body and heart-based herbal wellness consultations by appointment, both in-person or by phone. Please visit our Consultation page to learn more.

She lives off-grid in the forest where she raises goats, chickens & endangered woodland plants. Kim & friends are creating The Lakota Botanical Sanctuary, a 600 acre forest sanctuary & learning center. Interested in visiting? Please drop her an email at Info@LittleHerbShop.com


Alexis Kourafous - The Little Herb Shoppe steeped into Alexa's heart in the Fall of 2014. She interned at the shop while completing her studies at Plymouth State University in Health Education, Women's Studies, and Art. Alexa loves the gentle and intuitive nature of herbs - her favorites are Red Clover and Oatstraw. She now works remotely for The Little Herb Shoppe helping with graphic design creations as she sips some Lion Heart tea. "Plant medicine is so honest," she says, "I love working with the shop and aiding Kim's vision of spreading herbal based wisdom." Alexa now lives in Boston with her cats and spends her time cooking soul food and adventuring.

Carrie & Tatyana are our 2018 Interns - Bios coming shortly

Jodi Anthes 2018 Spring Intern

Jodi Anthes is a senior at St. Johnsbury Academy. She is currently studying the medicinal properties of herbs and how they can reduce stress and anxiety. An avid tea drinker, she sets out to learn about the herbal tea making process and what the best anxiety reducing blend is for her research. She also loves creating her own herbal tea concoctions at home. In her battle with chronic Lyme Disease, she has had first-hand experience with the efficacy of medicinal herbs and is intrigued and interested by their healing powers. Jodi admires The Little Herb Shoppe’s dedication and passion for providing the community with fine products that help to heal the body naturally.



An apothecary is more work than most imagine. Its fun being in the space, connecting plants and people. 

We have fun, but take our apothecary work very seriously. It requires focus, commitment and integrity for us to be able to bring grow, forage and make our plant medicine while creating a safe beautiful space for people to visit, heal, learn and explore.

Some of this is better expressed by the experiences that have been mirrored back to us by those whose light inspire hope and have helped build up the vibration of our beautiful little Apothecary.

A letter from Justine Ring (former employee)

"The Little Herb Shoppe was the first apothecary Iever worked in. I was trained to run the shop which includes medicine making, customer service and sales, merchandising, training interns, etc. My favorite part of the job, by far, was making medicine. I loved working with the plants directly and creating natural and effective  medicines with them. There is a tremendous amount of care and detail that goes into making high quality and consistent products. I learned the ins and outs of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's) and I have yet to find an apothecary that is more organized, structured and attentive than Little Herb Shoppe. 

There are all kinds of ways to run a successful apothecary, but I have consistently seen the necessity of community support and volunteer programs. All of the herbal businesses I have seen have at least some form of work trade and/or internships which serve as a way to both connect with community as well as to meet all of the demands that are required to keep an apothecary up and running. It is a great opportunity to build community around health and wellness as well as to learn about what the herb shop has to offer by attending workshops, herb identification walks, or even volunteering to work in the herb shop where you'll learn how to make medicines and much more. 

The Little Herb Shoppe is also the most beautiful apothecary I have ever seen! The space has a warm, enchanting and healing energy. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to spend so much time there and it was a critical stepping stone for me on my path toward practicing herbalism." JR

A letter from Carrie Hill (2018 Little Herb Shoppe Intern)
"I appreciate your skill in meeting people where they are at, I notice with myself and now with others, you offer a safe place; both emotionally and within the Shoppe itself! and people feel this immediately and give you very genuine information about themselves- and with that I see you share the herbs with them- through guidance, health and wellness discussions, it seems that that it is part of your medicine. Also, I’m appreciating seeing how I’ve observed you set boundaries with folks, remain kind, positive and maintain a healthy connection..... AND you laugh! And when you make mistakes, you take ownership, pass along the learning and keep going!
This was an exciting surprise for our herbalist to receive. We asked for a short paragraph of her experiences and important lessons from the apothecary to share with future interns... and received this from Alexa Kourafas instead.
