Our mission is to offer the finest full potency extracts made from the freshest, highest quality plants available.
Herbal medicine is as old as humankind and as widespread as the occurrence of communities. Herbal medicine is based on an intimate, practical knowledge of plants handed down for hundreds of generations while acknowledging the unique needs of individuals. While diet, exercise, and increased self-awareness form the foundation of health, fresh herbal therapy provides one of the key elements in the process of self-care.
We grow and wildcraft herbs in our bioregion and we source consciously wildcrafted plants from Hands On Organic or certified organic herbs from Pacific Botanicals.
Each phase of the production, from growing and selecting herbs, to the lengthy process of herbal extraction we do ourselves.
Our Compounds are synergistic combinations of herbs for a wide variety of common health concerns.
Liquid herbal extracts or tinctures are considered one of the most effective ways to take herbal supplements.
Unlike pills and capsules, liquid herbal extracts are immediately absorbed and assimilated into the bloodstream. Extracts are created by soaking herbs in a liquid menstruum of organic grain alcohol, water, kosher vegetable glycerin, or any combination of these.
This herb and menstruum mixture is mixed and turned for a minimum of two to four weeks and then pressed and filtered to leave a pure liquid herbal extract.
The quality and source of herbs used are of the highest importance. We have concentrated our efforts on obtaining fresh herbs picked at the optimum time for maximum potency.
We extract all of our herbs with gluten free, certified organic pharmaceutical grade grain alcohol.
