Anima Mundi was founded by Adriana Ayales, a rainforest tribal herbalist from Costa Rica. Born into a lineage of healing women, Adriana inherited intuitive abilities and natural gifts amplified by her study of the healing traditions: Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, North American traditional medicine and European style alchemy. She views Anima Mundi herbals as the bridge between these different lineages as each formula is based on these traditional standards of medicine making. Anima Mundi’s roots are within the heart of Costa Rica. The company specializes in sourcing directly from native people within Central and South America, providing a sustainable system and a direct relationship to the source of botanical alchemy and native wisdom. Anima Mundi cares to preserve the sanctuaries left in the world by celebrating it through sustainable trade and high-quality medicinal botanicals. Anima Mundi’s projects support true fair trade practices, permacultural outreach, developing small economies, and plant-based remedies that benefit people from all walks of life. Anima Mundi is careful to ensure that all ingredients used were harvested, dried and packed in accordance with their strict standards. Each product is handcrafted in New York City, utilizing biodynamic standards to ensure maximum quality and vibrancy.
