A new business grows in Eagle Creek

Adrian Lincoln is sowing the seeds for a new venture in Eagle Creek.

She hopes to open 5 Senses Botanicals at 25590 S.E. Folsom Road sometime next month.

The business will offer a variety of herbs, ranging in size from seedlings to larger potted herbs.

Lincoln is eager to share the wide variety of uses for herbs with the Estacada and Eagle Creek communities.

“There are endless amount of options,” she said. “That’s what’s so cool about them.”

In addition to herbs for cooking, Lincoln plans to have herbs for tea, aromatherapy, bath and body and medicinal purposes.

Lincoln said the medicinal herbs will be particularly popular due to their wide variety of uses.

“There’s herbal remedies out there for just about anything you could experience,” Lincoln said, noting that echinacea often benefits the immune system and lavender is useful for stress relief.

Lincoln hopes to make the business as environmentally friendly as possible.

“I’m making a specific point to do things as sustainably as possible,” she said.

She’ll accomplish this by using organic seeds and recycled materials for plant labels and boxes.

“I want (people who are interested in sustainability) to have somewhere local where they can go,” she added.

Additionally, Lincoln is taking requests from the community about what herbs they would like.

“I want to be able to offer what (people in the community) want,” she said. “I always want to have an open ear and give back to my community.”

Lincoln is passionate about researching herbs and sharing the information she finds.

“Some people might look at it as work, but for me it’s fun to research herbs and plants,” she said. “I’ll spend hours and hours reading about them.”

Lincoln hopes the business will open sometime in May. In the meantime, more information can be found on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/5-Senses-Botanicals-274244069574608/.

She’s eager to get started with the business and meet other people interested in herbs and sustainability.

“I’d love to meet other people that feel the same way,” she said. “I know there’s a lot of really cool people out there just waiting to be met.”
