Dedicated to educating everyone on their journey from seed to self-reliance, Dr. Reiman enlightens audiences on plant therapy via home remedies and as a path to ultimate health at famed festival running June 25-28 in Ketchum, Idaho
Ukiah, CA – (June 16, 2021) – Personal Plants — a multimedia platform designed to support the home cultivation and processing of therapeutic plants — today announced that founder and CEO Dr. Amanda Reiman will debut the brand at the prestigious annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival & Conference June 25-28 in Ketchum, Idaho. Presenting on the topic, “Bring Plant-Based Wellness Home!” with Blair Lauren Brown, the co-founder and COO of Poplar as well as a Personal Plants advisor, Dr. Reiman will help lead an audience through the process of making an adaptogenic mushroom honey, an elderberry tincture, and a CBD infused cocktail using plant-based health modalities. Later that same day, Dr. Reiman moderates a panel on “Recovery: The Paths to Wellness” with experts Nadia Botz Weber, Tommy Rosen, Claudia Nanino, and Britt Frank.
“I’m gratified that public interest in the healing properties of plants is exploding at conferences like the prestigious Sun Valley gathering and others across the U.S.,” Dr. Reiman says. “I’m excited to work with Blair to show our audience how easy it is to use plants, berries, and hemp to create delicious and effective medicines that can be enjoyed every day. At Personal Plants, our goal is to help women in particular — since we’ve historically been underserved — harness the power of plants to live richer, healthier lives. We teach our audience how to cultivate, care for, harvest, and benefit from plants of all kinds, including those with psychedelic properties — but for Sun Valley, we’ll stick to strictly non-psychoactive plants that can be consumed or applied to everyone, regardless of age. I’m looking forward to a fun, high-energy, and insightful afternoon.”
Available to experience this year both via streaming and in person, the Sun Valley Wellness Festival & Conference (SVWFC) is the longest-running wellness festival in the world. Prices range from $75-$950, with many events free of charge. Dr. Amanda Reiman and Blair Brown present on plant-based wellness on Sunday, June 27, at 11:15am on the Culinary Stage and Dr. Reiman moderates the Paths to Wellness panel at 2pm that same day on the main stage.
“We’re delighted to have Dr. Reiman launch her Personal Plants brand here with us at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival & Conference,” says SVWFC Executive Director Heather LaMonica Deckard. “We’re seeing increased interest from attendees in learning to use the healing power of plants in their daily lives.”
“I’m excited to serve the community at this storied festival,” Dr. Reiman adds. “I founded Personal Plants to address the lack of curated, coordinated, and trustworthy content available for beginners to use in learning about cultivating cannabis, hemp, and mushrooms. The content that does exist is fragmented and difficult to find, making it nearly impossible for a consumer to locate and evaluate it for accuracy. What we’re doing with Personal Plants is putting knowledge together in one spot and supporting it with physical kits you can purchase to use at home as well as videos and live, in-person Clubhouse content that encourages experimentation and inquiry. I think it makes a wonderful fit for the thought leadership and insight into healing modalities that we have all come to expect from the Sun Valley event.”
