Haley's Story

Roots and Leaves was established in 2018 by Haley Maness and was born out of desperation and necessity. I (Haley, Founder/Owner) was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease and mold exposure and it was wreaking havoc on my health and life. Mainstream medical was doing little to help, so I started researching alternative treatments. God introduced me to the healing world of herbs and I haven’t looked back. My first and most powerful product, Elderberry & Honey Tonic, was what began my healing journey. When I take it, I feel better. It’s as simple as that. I infuse twelve total herbs and roots into the tonic and add raw honey, making it a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial immune boosting product in one small daily dose. It’s not the only tool in my natural healing toolbox, but it is one of my favorites...and always will be. When I saw the potential healing it brought into my life, it motivated me to branch out even more with herbs and nourishing foods. I can honestly say that I am 90% better than I was a year ago, and friends

...I was miserably sick a year ago.

​ One of my favorite quotes, that resonates so deeply with my calling in life is, “You have been assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.” I have lived with the physical, chronic, daily, and draining pain that comes with illness and no answers. I see you, I GET you... those of you that suffer daily in brave silence. Every product that I create is geared towards your ultimate health and healing, and there will be many more to come because it is my passion to bring organic herbal remedies into your home, that you can actually afford. Food is our medicine and Herbs are our healers. Let me help you tap into that truth. Never underestimate the power of whole foods, herbs, roots, berries and spices to bring abundant life to your weary bones.
​ Our products are handmade and packaged by us with an extra dose of love and prayers. Even our three year old likes to "shake" the tea bags to help mama mix them up well. We only give to your family what we would give to our own! Thank you for visiting our site and please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions! I'm here for you.

Much love,
Haley, Brandon, and Addie
About our shop
We are a small team and a family owned business. Haley is the herbalist & recipe creator for all of the products that we offer. She is also head of basically everything for the business and wears many hats. Brandon, her better half, helps on backend IT projects and anything technical. Addie, our little one, is the future herbalist and CEO of our company and everything we dream is for her. Debra and Caroline make up the rest of our team and they wear many hats as well from shipping and receiving, deliveries, to inventory management. They do a ton for us and we are grateful for their hard work and the fact that they are like family. As our team continues to grow we hope to employ more women, and help mothers find work life balance while working for us. We focus on partnering with independently owned health food stores, pharmacies, and any other retail location that is focused on bringing health and wellness to their community. We believe that the stores we choose to partner with are the backbone of our society, the employees at our retail partner locations are knowledgeable and helpful and give well thought out and caring recommendations. This is something you can’t get on Amazon, which we will never partner with.
Our Mission
Our passion is to provide simplified herbal and holistic education to everyone and produce organic herbal remedies that are affordable for all. To put the power back into the consumers hands to heal themselves, with everything we have been given on this earth. To educate that weeds have been vilified and they are actually powerful medicinal remedies. To simplify and teach others how to grow their own herbs easily and how to use them effortlessly in everyday life. To give back what was given to me several years ago when I was sick and clueless to herbal potency and the toxins I was consuming that were deemed as “safe”. I want the world to know that herbs are magical and are our true allies. That we can actually heal our bodies with what we consume in the form of food, herbs, roots and spices. We give loads of free educational content on our social media platforms and blog. I want you to discover the same joy and healing I have found in living a life filled with holistic and herbal goodness. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for all the latest and greatest free herbal information!
