 Jaee Sumter, Founder

Sweet Herbal Honey Apothecary LLC is a small traveling interdisciplinary community creative agency that strives to empower and uplift all communities of color within the U.S. and internationally. We strive to build environments of understanding, creativity, and empowerment where education is a key and bridge to liberation.

Our mission is to create inclusive educational transformative spaces and projects that center healing pathways that liberate marginalize communities of color and bring together an exchange of building integrative creative solutions that are rooted in the arts, social change, and liberation.


Through our organized events, digital and creative services, classes, handmade products, community donation funds, creativity coaching, curated interior cultural design, educational programs, and partnerships, we strive to promote understanding, acceptance, and solidarity with all people to build mindfully. We believe that celebrating the diversity of cultures, backgrounds, and experiences can create a better and more integrative world for all. We support the communities we work side-by-side with by using creative strategies to support our clients, community partners, and collaborators in achieving their visions and needs that support the greater community towards global sovereignty. 

We specialize in organizing programming that centers on sustainability, cultural preservation, and interdependence that provide safe and inclusive environments for learning. We provide holistic healing experiences accessible to everyone. Our gatherings, workshops, services and projects are curated to bring people together in love, community care, holistic understanding, and building better bridges that move us towards intergenerational bridging and collective freedom.


As a community-driven business that is dedicated to empowering people of color by providing education, tools, and resources, we support each other in reaching our highest potential. Through our programming, we generate resources that are used to support and empower our communities. Whether we’re in the U.S. or traveling internationally, we strive to provide our community with meaningful experiences in person or virtually. Our mission is to provide access to knowledge, resources, and opportunities that will help build a better and stronger community, everywhere.

        Creativity changes lives. It heals and it solves problems.

We believe in the power of knowledge, creativity, and the importance of continuing the work our ancestors have done to provide us with a blueprint towards liberation.
