Ethical & Sustainability Practices

Screen Shot 2016-06-12 at 7.38.38 PMJess and SunRaven Apothecary believes that the best medicine comes from a healthy and sustainable environment. With that in mind, ethical practices are followed during all harvesting and foraging activities. SunRaven Apothecary personally grows many medicinal herbs but most native and local herbs are harvested from pristine private property with utmost care and awareness to the environmental impact that foraging can have on an area. When applicable, invasive species are utilized in order to bring balance to the natural and native plant environment.
