WHY HERBS?

The use of herbs was an integral part of supporting wellness and correcting imbalance for millennia. It was not until relatively recently, at least in the Western world, that herbs were supplanted as the primary component of our apothecaries. Despite this shift, herbs continue to be effective allies in supporting wellness, and are often readily available. We can grow them ourselves or get to know them in wild settings, while in the process becoming more attuned to the environment which coexists with its inhabitants, be they plant, animal, fungi, or bacteria. We believe that it is our birthright to use the gifts of nature with respect and wisdom, and herbs are one of those gifts.

Health doesn’t come from plastic bottles. Vitality grows naturally from the way you live your life. Deep down, people already know this.
