"The root of our intention is to craft high potency formulas, utilizing ancient healing methods applied and studied by rainforest natives."
I am Adriana, the herbalist, medicine maker, educator and founder over at Anima Mundi. I'm originally from Costa Rica and started Anima Mundi several years ago in Brooklyn as a means to bridging ancient remedies to the modern world. My heart was to create a true farm to pharmacy experience through the art of medicine making with herbs. Our Apothecary is composed of the most pristine, and medicinal botanicals found in nature. We are devoted to providing the freshest and most vibrant herbal formulas.
We offer a wide spectrum of remedies and plants from the world, integrating from several traditions that I've studied over the year, such as rainforest tribal styles, Ayurveda, Chinese-Daoist Medicine, and European style alchemy. I believe that by preserving these ancient forms of indigenous botany, we keep alive a very sacred aspect to our source. Anima Mundi was founded with the intention to bridge ancient healing traditions and plant remedies as a form as grass roots healthcare for today's world.
"I believe that by preserving these ancient forms of indigenous botany, we keep alive a very sacred aspect to our source."
Anima Mundi was born out of the desire to having a natural form of healthcare that is symbiotic with nature. The root of our intention is to craft high potency formulas, utilizing ancient healing methods applied and studied by rainforest natives. Sourcing from botanical history, we aim to bring a wide range of formulas for wellness and longevity. The preservation of alchemy is how we want to write history. Within our formulas you’ll find wisdom that has been revered by medicine people across the world. We directly work with native people in Costa Rica and the Amazon, where the majority of our formulas are inspired from.
Our formulations capture the essence of different traditions. Anima Mundi integrates Rainforest Tribal botany, with Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Our aim is to create an eclectic and potent modus operandi to craft next level recipes for longevity.
All of our products are formulated by Adriana Ayales, clinical herbalist, and handcrafted with love and care in New York City by a great team. We believe that by supporting native people directly and their ancient botanical practices, we are contributing to the revival of medicine that has been lost in today's world. Anima Mundi cares to preserve the sanctuaries left in the world by celebrating it through sustainable trade and medicinal creations.
Anima Mundi infuses several botanical practices ranging from Rainforest Tribal herbalism to Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Each formulation has a unique composition of herbs with a story. All of our liquid assets are extracted between 28 days to up to 6 months, slowly extracting into different menstrums. Each formula is handcrafted biodynamically in our laboratory in NYC, which means that we extract each herb using a biodynamic (lunar) calendar to extract all the constituents properly. We carefully craft one of a kind formulas for mind + body wellness using the finest sources that we come across. We make it our mission to constantly search for new sources to elevate the potency of our blends.
