NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Leah Larabell is used to fielding questions from the skeptical.

"Herbs absolutely do something," she said.

Leah and her husband, Joel, run High Garden in East Nashville, where the walls are filled with her friends.

"The plants were everything. [They were] my best friends growing up," she said.

What started at home with tonics for friends and family is now a thriving business.

"I never thought of it as a career option. It was just a way of life," she said.

Now, the shop is a place to buy herbs teas, kombucha, even potions -- non-alcoholic concoctions, blended with wellness in mind.

The shop also offers classes on everything from "mountain medicine" to "foraging and feasting." Click here for more information.
