Latest News at Avena Botanicals

Yes! We are still open for business and selling our beautiful hand-crafted single extracts, elixirs, glycerites, oils, salves, cremes, teas, and Deb's gardening book. We have temporarily paused the blending of our herbal compounds as we go through numerous FDA compliance processes. One of the most costly steps to implement is the testing of fresh plants along with testing our finished tinctures for purity, strength and composition.

We have just hired a year-round Quality/Production Manager, who will help us complete FDA regulatory procedures so we can return to blending our compounds within the next few months.

Herbal medicine matters. At Avena Botanicals, we believe medicinal plants and a sacred connection to place heal body, mind, and spirit and encourage humans to be mindful and loving stewards of the Earth.

We bring over a thousand pounds of fresh, hand-gathered medicinal herbs into our apothecary annually and use these herbs to thoughtfully prepare herbal tinctures, elixirs, glycerites, and oils. Over 80% of these herbs come directly from Avena's certified-biodynamic gardens.
