About me

An herbalicious 'herb girl' who lives to dig in the dirt! I'm Kristie Nackord—the herbalicious 'Herb Girl' behind Spirit Horse Herbals. I am a passionate and wild-hearted woman who loves plants and horses. Originally from Northern California, I moved to Westcliffe, Colorado to LIVE my dream life. That's right, live it, not just dream it! I lovingly grow most of my own organic herbs and flowers that I brew into my products. And if I don’t grow it, I buy my ingredients from only reputable organic growers. At 8,300 feet and with less than a 90-day growing season, most things that grow here are strong, courageous, and vibrant—qualities I feel are important to bring to any medicine.

Hi Spirit Horse Herbals! I&#x27;m back on digthedirt website! Got kind of side-tracked! Found out that NO WAY do I have time to spend in 3 days/wk in a little front office shop! I&#x27;m my only employee and for that matter, the only employer really! Not sure about you but I am the only one growing flowers(digin&#x27;), pressing flowers (diggin&#x27;), designing pictures (While diggin for more product materials), NOT COMPLAINING!, but trying to do the mktg myself too! Things are going &quot;very well&quot; but could use more time! I&#x27;m sure you understand w/your company!! Just wanted to start touching base again (now that I&#x27;m out of little shop space - except for greeting card, hand-made goat milk&#x27;s soaps w/matching sachets filled w/my own potpourri - I&#x27;m keeping those few things there. <br/> <br/>I&#x27;m a &quot;defitnite herb lover&quot; - have trouble w/some so will be getting back w/you soon I hope! Hope your herbs are doing well and your business! <br/>Keep in touch (still not much luck w/parsley, winter savory, and chamomile!) so will be &quot;diggin&#x27; for dirt from you soon! faerie garden

Hi Faerie Garden~ Welcome back to garden cyber-land! I would be more than happy to answer any qeustions that I can. You can always email me directly at or find me here on DigtheDirt. I do understand what it is like to be the digger, picker, packer, shipper. When it comes to farming or plants, I've always said you better love it because if you don't it's going to be a big drag! See you round DTD... Kristie
