Orcas Herbal Apothecary and the world class herbalists and organic farms we work with are completely devoted to providing the freshest and most vibrant botanical goodness to our community and the world. Our ingredients are primarily sourced from native people and small farmers from the mountains of Tibet to the rainforest of Costa Rica and South America to farms in Washington state. Our purpose is to bridge native people and small organic farms into today’s world through the magic of ancient botany and forest remedies. Our business model supports true fair trade practices, permacultural outreach and developing small economies with plant based remedies that benefit people from all walks of life.
The formulations we have chosen capture the essence of different traditions integrating Rainforest Tribal botany with Tibetan and Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The aim is to create an eclectic and potent modus operandi to craft next level recipes for health and longevity.
We ensure that all ingredients used are carefully harvested dried and packed in accordance to our standards. We don’t only go by certifications we truly want to work directly with farmers that are doing genuine good organic work in this world. In the rainforest most farmers or wild-crafters do not have the paperwork and certifications for many reasons. Primarily due to economic setbacks as well as them being in extremely rural areas and they simply don’t have the means to make it happen. This is who we love to work with and this is what we are proud to support. Farmers and ethical wild-crafters that know the jungle and mountain areas and prioritize mother nature above all else. We care to support them directly and ensure that aspect of life is nourished and maintained economically and energetically.
All of our products are formulated by trained experienced herbalists and handcrafted with love. We work directly with our sources to ensure our standards of low temperatures are abided as well as no fillers included. We also undergo laboratory analysis for all of our products and to make sure the soil doesn’t contain heavy metals or toxicity that might be absorbed through the plants.
We believe that by supporting native people directly and their ancient botanical practices in the mountains of the Himalaya, rainforests of Costa Rica, Peru and the Tibetan farmers and medical monasteries throughout Tibet, Bhutan, Darjeeling, Nepal and Siberia we are contributing to the revival of medicine that has been lost in today’s world and care to preserve the sanctuaries left in the world by celebrating it through sustainable trade and medicinal creations. We are very proud to be bringing these traditions together and represented beautifully at Orcas Herbal Apothecary.
