Wise Mountain Botanicals maintains an apothecary of over 100 herbs, locally sourced fresh from native, naturalized and cultivated medicinal plants. We are committed to providing the most vital, high quality herbal products by using only the finest ingredients. We start with fresh herbs that we harvest with care in the wild or cultivate in our gardens in Mt. Shasta, CA. In order to create our high potency herbal tinctures, we use organic non-gmo corn alcohol and pure spring water. Our herbal skin care products are blended with fair trade organic oils and butters and organic essential oils. We are delighted to share the beauty, abundance and healing magic of plants with you. We hope that you are inspired to invigorate and optimize your health with the ancient wisdom of herbs.
