You’ve got your own familiarity with certain kinds of herb. But Michelle Anju Mahendra knows the whole lot really, really well.
So well, in fact, that she’s opened Anju Apothecary just outside the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Before you arrive, the Tai Sophia Institute-trained herbalist has you fill out in-depth questionnaires about everything from your food cravings to TV habits to major life events and family history. Once she assesses the issues and gets a handle on your lifestyle, she’ll customize teas, tinctures, and powders to target your specifics, from chapped winter skin and chronic indigestion to anxiety and insomnia. She’ll even create individualized immune boosters for flu season.
Think of Mahendra as your new best bud.
Anju Apothecary, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, between North Gower Street and North Van Ness Avenue, Hollywood (323-308-5838 or anjuapothecary.com).
