Grateful Desert has served the community of Joshua Tree as its local apothecary since 2011. Our collection of herbal tinctures and tincture formulas, created by Founder Jenny Q of Jenny Q’s Herbals & Grateful Apothecaries, are known for their potency and efficacy. Our library of single herb tinctures numbers almost 100 and growing, including some hard to find gems like rose petal, orange rind, cinnamon and star anise. Best selling tincture formulas include Sleep Deep, Anxiety Free, Chill Out, and Vital Energy. Hand-crafted in small batches with spirit and intention, the tinctures are made with the highest quality responsibly sourced ingredients, to support the body's strength and balance.
Our Aroma Bar is the first of its kind that we know of, with over 100 essential oils (and growing!) available to create our popular house blends, and custom blends for individuals and businesses. We collaborate with hotels, vacation rentals, salons and spas to create signature scents and clean, delicious body care amenities to order.
We are also a source of other natural body and home care products, international foods, local art, gourmet chocolate and many sweet surprises. We are passionate about seeking out and carrying goods from small companies that align with our values: ethical, organic, fair trade, beautiful.
In 2019, Grateful Desert left our long time location and moved down the street a few blocks, to become a cornerstone of the new Joshua Tree Healing Arts Center, alongside Instant Karma Yoga.
In 2021, just in time for our tenth anniversary, we transformed into a worker-owned business, and opened a sister store, Grateful Rain, in Astoria, Oregon.
Browse the secure online store and reach out with any questions or special requests. If you'd like to order anything from the shop that's not on the website, please connect with us.
Have fun and treat yourself sweetly!
