the story of rune

meet rune


Hello, it brings me such great happiness to connect with you. My name is Catherine, I was born and brought up in Africa where my childhood was an array of nature, our garden was our medicine cabinet and my parents were true believers in natural medicine. I learned crystal magick from a very early age and crystal healing was just a part of my everyday. My childhood was wild and free. Many years later I find myself in the South of London surrounded by beautiful ancient woodlands and mystic wisdom, this is where Runes Apothecary was born.


The vast, rich land provides so much plant magick, my love of foraging started at an early age and has just grown with time. Every plant, tree, herb, and flower is sacred and I treat with so much love and appreciation for providing their therapeutic gifts. 


I incorporate white magick into my daily life, this is the expression of my soul and ultimately the driving force behind Runes Apothecary. With a combination of my love for the plant kingdom and the desire to heal naturally, I have created every product to nurture your mind, body, and soul. All are made with so much love and positive intent and thoroughly blessed and cleansed. I absolutely adore making these magickal products and I really hope you enjoy them.


If you have any special requests or questions please get in touch, I would love to chat. 


I have so much love and respect for our beautiful planet earth and all she provides and that’s why it is so important for me to only use the most sustainable products available. All ingredients are 100% pure, natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and from fair-trade local suppliers who reflect the same ethical manner as I do. My goal is to be as zero waste and plastic-free as possible with only a small amount of my packaging containing recycled plastic. All packaging and packing materials are 100% recyclable, some reusable & most are biodegradable. I ethically forage all my own herbs and flowers from Kent which is so beautiful it is called the ‘Garden of England’.
