Guided by the Wise Woman Ways, Red Moon Herbs creates potent herbal products in small batches using the highest quality fresh plant material that is almost all local and all organically grown or wildcrafted.
Started in 1994 by Corinna Wood and Jessica Godino, Red Moon Herbs has seen many changes over the past 20 years, including incredible growth, two apothecaries, and, most recently, stringent compliance with FDA regulations regarding herbal medicines. In 2012, the directorship was passed to from Corinna Wood to Jeannie Dunn. Throughout these changes, the focus and mission of the business has remained strong and true: to create safe and effective herbal products for the whole family from local, abundant plants.
As a professional herbalist and North Carolina native, Jeannie has been wildcrafting and making herbal extracts, oils, and salves for over a decade. She studied formally at both the NC School of Natural Healing and One World Healing Arts, but her herbal roots go much further back to the back-to-basics lifestyle infused in her as a child. Jeannie picked strawberries, canned vegetables, and pulled weeds from row crops with her parents and three siblings on their multi-generational family farm in Efland, NC. Today, knowing the powerful healing properties of those 'weeds' she used to pull, Jeannie happily uses them in her fermentations, herbal extracts, and fun, medicinal elixirs.
New Directions, Ancient Wisdom
As Jeannie has taken the directorship of Red Moon Herbs – overseeing both the art and the science of this earth-based, Wise Woman herbal business and apothecary – Corinna has stayed involved for support. The apothecary and production studio has moved from Black Mountain to a new location in Weaverville, yet many of the plants are still wildcrafted from their original locations at Earthaven Eco-Village, and the sustainable, earth-centric practices continue to expand.
Under Jeannie’s direction, Red Moon Herbs is expanding to serve more locations locally and regionally, and new faces have joined the family. Click here to learn more about our current staff.
The herbal family at Red Moon is dedicated to the mission of creating potent, high-quality, and local herbal products made the Wise Woman Way, and enthusiastically maintain the company’s 20-year integrity. We look forward to serving all of our current and new customers with the best in planet-friendly plant medicine for decades to come.
Inclusivity and Accessibility
As a small, woman-owned business, we recognize, embrace, and value the diversity of our staff and supporters. Herbal medicine is first and foremost the medicine of the people, and we believe it to be traditional medicine, rather than alternative.

Herbs for all!
