Hrblgy is an apothecary and wellness brand on a mission to bring wellness back home.

Group 119.png


This mission is rooted in access, alignment, and reclamation as we cultivate space for the Collective’s conscious remembering. 

Nothing that we do is brand new. It’s not New Age. It certainly isn’t made-up. This is deeply ancient, divinely ancestral, and already within you.


Hrblgy is where the wellness nerd meets the spiritual guru — it’s a recognition that you can be both. Here, you will find information, services, and stories around plant medicine, wellness, healing, and holistic spiritual care meant to ground you from root to crown.


Heal self, heal others.



Mariah Emerson

Founder of Hrblgy

Mariah is a Black, queer woman navigating life through the lens of healing, connection, and the power of introspection. Her mission is to “bring wellness back home” by teaching, initiating, and continuing conversations that orient her communities back to a well-being mindset, which they’re oftentimes marginalized from having access to.


Mariah’s, and Hrblgy’s, mantra, “heal self, heal others,” is infused in every aspect of her Being. From the individualized nature of her practice as an herbalist and sound healing to her work within the community — in all of its intersections — Mariah moves with a heal from within approach that she truly believes will serve the collective.
