Meet Chloe Bee of Happy Healthy High Horny Herbs and Rainbow Bliss Botanicals in Tempe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chloe Bee.

Chloe, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
A sequence of divine and challenging events have led me to the path of herbalism and holistic healing. I am a dancer, sister, daughter, friend, teacher…we all need healers in our lives and I just happen to be the one (alongside many others in our community) to step forth and bring us back down to Earth. From having a life-threatening illness due to environmental contamination, a near-death experience, having friends fall into opiate addiction, watching cancer rates rise, and studying ecology & factory farming, many doors have opened for me to find a solution rather than simmer in disdain for our dysfunctional society. A fusion of business savvy actions and never-ending passion have generated a path for me to be in the position of offering people natural medicine in a ‘mainstream’ location of downtown Tempe, AZ. I am blessed and I’ve worked harrrrrrd. Happy Healthy High Horny Herbs is my brick and mortar location, and Rainbow Bliss Botanicals are the hand-crafted unique medicines that mindfully fill the shelves within our apothecary. After a five-year training in professional Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda, and Western Eclectic Herbal Medicine, I gained the training and confidence to craft herbal formulas and salves for a wide arrange of healing applications along with magical and celestial intentions.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Focus, ethics, staying humble, and being bold enough to fiercely defend and protect your hive are all critical elements in my success thus far. We at HHHHH constantly deal with a public ignorance of natural medicine and having a hub full of holistically (inside & out) gorgeous women can often attract disrespectful male energy. We as a team transcend that through education, understanding, and practicing kindness. Community empowerment & sisterhood have enabled us to get through the hardest times, especially when the general public continues to doubt the legitimacy of herbal medicine. It’s a huge topic, and in the midst of a pharmaceutically saturated public state-of-mind, we continue to provide a radical alternative with patience.

On a lighter note, I’ve been trying to ferment a few things here and there. That’s been exciting…sometimes things turn out incredible…and sometimes I get too excited and combine a grip of ingredients together and it turns out Funky….like FYI never ferment maitake mushrooms..ew.. I mean I like weird tastes, but don’t go there. Hmmm what else….well I also overbook myself. I think I can do it all with only 1 breath in between. I’m learning to do less, bee more, and always deliver with balance.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Happy Healthy High Horny Herbs supports the human right to free education of plant medicines. People can come in here without the pressure of a purchase, ask us questions, and leave inspired! We are an alliance of ethnobotany, artistic expression, cultural diversity, festival culture, psychedelic art, Earth-first thinking, and transformative workshop facilitation presently thriving on community-expressed needs for the cultivation of plant wisdom, and meaningful ritual. We offer donation-based classes to the Phoenix area while supporting other herbal teachers in the community as hosts and guest-presenters. This connects us to the broader Western American herbal culture while providing a base for practical social activism.
We strive to integrate consciousness, ceremony, and botanical medicine through honoring the divine intelligence between people and plants. Our organic apothecary sandwiched between a nightclub and a corporate bank for 7 years so that I can serve the City of Tempe with herbalism “IN-YOUR-FACE!” This project to have a botanical presence on the busiest foot-trafficked location in the state of Arizona is a service to the community, a labor of love, a place where lovers meet, where friends unite, where dancers come to nourish, where addicts come for solutions, where local designers & creatresses come to sell, and where OUR CULTURE has an independently owned and operated place of MEDICINE and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE & ACCEPTANCE.

What were you like growing up?
