100% COLORADO MADE — AND PROUD OF IT!
What's on the ingredient list of a product is vital, but *how* those ingredients were grown and *who* grew them also has a profound effect on us. We believe medicine can come from the earth and be grown with love and intention. It can be cultivated with care for the land, with wisdom passed down through the centuries, and with new knowledge added to that wisdom thanks to modern research. It's about the tangible chemical properties of the ingredients, but it's also about the energy of the plants, the mountain streams that watered them, the rich soil that nourished them, the hands that planted them, and how they can connect us to nature so we can rediscover how to heal and even thrive.
