With family dating back to the slave plantations of the 1600s in Beckley, WVa, Ruby Daniels (“Ruby D”) refers to her heritage as “Afro-lachian”. She spent many childhood summers in Beckley with her aunts and grandmother, learning about African American traditions, spirituality, native plants and herbal remedies. This motivated her to start experimenting with plants on her own, and later form her business, Creasy Jane’s, named after her great-great-grandmother, Creasy Jane Pack. After earning her Master’s in Therapeutic Herbalism she returned to Beckley and now offers consultations and herbal remedies based in that tradition.
