About Katya

Katya Varlamova 

Warmicita Herbals is founded by Katya Varlamova - clinical herbalist, plant grower, medicine maker, naturopath, Earth lover and mama!

"Nature has been my saving grace, my refuge, and my inspiration for as long as I remember myself.

Plants have literally saved my life, many times over. They have helped me heal from a devastating traffic accident by restoring my physical body and holding space for the much needed emotional healing to unfold. Powerfully, lovingly and patiently, they have guided me on a long journey of self-discovery to a place of harmony with the deepest essence of my soul which was finally free to express itself creatively in all of life's wondrous facets.

Many significant life changes had to be embraced along the way, including quitting my convenient yet no longer inspiring work in finance, moving out of the city and re-visiting some of my important relationships. On a sunny spring equinox of 2008, as I was trekking the spectacular Cordillera Blanca mountains of the Peruvian Andes, I sat down by the sparkling blue waters of a mountain lake. As I was admiring the white snow-covered mountain tops, I suddenly felt a sense of deep, overwhelming commitment to fully embrace my life-long journey with the green beings.

Years of herbal studies, adventures and work have followed. They have taken me around the US, South America and Europe - growing medicinal plants, making them into herbal remedies, doing clinical work and teaching herbal medicine classes. Along this amazing journey I received many precious healing gifts. They have inspired me to create WARMICITA HERBALS in order to offer you as complete a healing experience as possible with the plants, while making the most of their unique and powerful gifts." 


In her one-on-one work with clients Katya calls on the wisdom and generosity of the Western herbal tradition, precious ancient teachings of TCM and Ayurveda, and magical powers of the Amazonian plant medicine.

Katya stands by the importance of working with the whole person, honoring and being fully present to the beautiful, intricate complexity of each of her clients.

She deeply believes in the foundational principle of naturopathic philosophy: the importance of "identifying the cause of the cause of the cause" when addressing any of her clients' physical imbalances.

Katya does so on the physical plane, and if her clients request further insights, she works with them to identify any emotional, psychological or energetic  patterns that may be at the root of the physical suffering. No matter how uncomfortable and limiting these subconscious belief systems might feel, once seen, understood & accepted, they often hold a key to our deepest and most authentic gifts of this lifetime.

In her highly intuitive and holistic approach to working with clients, Katya often uses vibrational flower essences, essential oils, flower waters, ritual, meditation, breathing, journaling and visualization techniques.

Katya offers herbal medicine classes, medicine making workshops, and plant medicine retreats in the US, Europe and South America.

She is available for private herbal consultations, group workshops & retreats.
