Welcome to the Good Life inspired by nature.

I'm Rebecca Ingalls, an herbalist and therapist on the North Shore of Boston, Massachusetts. I enjoy meeting others interested in herbalism and also exploring a fulfilling life-style in sync with nature. I do a lot of this work from my cottage on Canal Street in Salem, Massachusetts. Here you will find a teaching space as well as the Palmer Pond Botanicals herb shop where folks can sample and purchase plant-based creations based on essential and practical living arts. On the pages of this website you will discover some of the beloved plants who have treated me so well along the way. You will find their good nature in all kinds of delicious body-loving oils, creams, salves, teas, extracts and more.

Never stop questioning.

What you won't find on these pages is medical advice. I am a down-to-earth educator who is willing to work along side folks who wish to cultivate a healthy, experiential approach to herbalism as part of an age old, practical matter of living on this earth.
