Good Vibes Only!
I'm Nicole. I'm an herbalist living and working in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge of Oregon. I received my Chartered Herbalist Diploma from Dominion Herbal College in 2019, as well as, my Entrepreneurial Herbalist Certificate from The Herbal Academy in 2019 and Introductory Herbalist Certificate from The Herbal Academy in 2020. I continue to study, research and dive into the vast history and uses of herbs! It truly is a never-ending world of beauty and wonder.
Herbal Revival Apothecary is my little dream come true. My shop was born out of my love of herbs and herbal folklore/healing, as well as my love for natural and organic products that are good for us and our bodies, as well as the environment. I wanted to create a fun and funky space that celebrates our inner whimsical side but also provide a place for customers to find herbal preparations, all natural bath & beauty products, feel good products for healthful living, and sustainable home goods; and I think we've done a pretty good job around here of making that vision come to fruition.
It wasn't a one person job. Luckily for me, I've got an amazing family and wonderful friends willing to chip in whenever necessary.
From my friends and husband who end up doing all the renovations and moving of furniture to our all girls crew of merchandisers!
While Herbal Revival supplies all the natural herbal and ecofriendly products J Hollow Essentials has the home decor items covered. She's got an eye for design and works with my list of must have requirements (organic, sustainably sourced, all-natural). From cozy throws to hand made rugs and clean burning candles, she's got it!
Perhaps you're wondering where the whimsy comes from? That would be: K.I.S.S. She brings the fun and the funky to life here! She also creates a lot of our beautiful displays and that's why it looks so fantastic all the time. Not to toot our own horns...but TOOT TOOT!
My good friend Deb, is selling her wonderful and carefully curated collection of vintage jewelry in our downstairs level from 11am- 4pm Tuesday-Saturday. She truly has an eye for unique and special items. She researches each piece individually so she can inform her customers of where the item originated, what time period and who was likely to have created it. Each piece is a work of art and Deb is so much fun. Go see her today!
Being here, in this wonderful space, with these fantastic people and being able to share my love of all the items we carry here has been, like I said, an absolute dream.
We share our space with Flow Yoga The Dalles, where I also get to teach several classes a week. Yes! I get to talk about herbs and do yoga all day! I mean what else could a girl ask for?
Flow has a wide variety of classes to fit every person's needs, as well as well-educated and fun teachers. We offer everything from Gentle Yoga to Circuit Strength classes, with Barre and Zumba in between! Now offering more than 40 virtual classes a week + in studio and park classes, as well.

ALL the good vibes,
