Julia from Berliner Zauberkraut creates natural herbal cleaning and household products that are effective & good for humans and nature alike. She uses traditional techniques like fermentation and soaping as well as local herbs traditionally considered as Hexenkräuter. Julia believes everything is connected and that we are happiest in harmony.
With this in mind she founded the @daheimmanufaktur communal kitchen 5 years ago, giving international food startups, herbalists and fermenters a sustainable home. In spring 2020 she called on some other Berlin fermenters & herbalists to take part in the first @hexenkueche.community pop-up event and found a whole herbal & witchy community waiting to join. And so the Hexenküche was born, connecting people to the magic of nature and to each other.
