Origin Story: Fettle Botanic

Our weekly Origin Story introduces us to people who have turned their passion into a profession.

If you’re not feeling well, most people’s first stop is the drugstore to grab Tums or NyQuil or anything that will hopefully make us feel better, but herbalist Katelyn Dexter, owner of Fettle Botanic in Bend, is on a mission to get you to seek a healthier alternative. If you’re curious about introducing herbs into your life or if you’re just a tea person and you’re looking for something new, stop into the store, and see which herbs sing to you.
