Berry Well Gift Box

Let the zingy, nutrient-rich flavors of these three amazing berries be part of your winter wellness and happiness plan! This vibrant gift set is certain to please.

Each bottle in this set is packed full of goodness and can be used individually or in combination. Herbalist Deb Soule has been growing Schisandra berry vines in Avena’s garden for 15 years. She says it is one of the most beneficial herbs for strengthening your inner capacity to feel resilient, grounded and present in body, mind, and spirit. It is these berries that go into our Schisandra Tincture. In 1997, Deb planted 48 hawthorn trees around Avena’s first pollinator sanctuary garden. Every October, we hand-harvest over 20 pounds of red hawthorn berries. They are immediately brought inside and prepared into our Hawthorn Plus for supporting cardiovascular health. And every home herbal remedy kit must have Avena’s Elderberry Elixir for nourishing your family during the colder season.

This gift set comes delicately set in a keepsake wooden box filled with craft crinkle paper. Includes a bottle of Schisandra Tincture (1 oz), Hawthorn Plus (1 oz), and Elderberry Elixir (1 oz). Approximate box dimensions: 4" x 6" x 3".


Biodynamics: Agriculture in Service of the Earth and Humanity

Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.

Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.

Biodynamic Principles and Practices:

  • Views the soil and farm (or garden) as living organisms.
  • Places significant attention on soil health and plant, pollinator, and animal diversity.
  • Enhances compost, soil, and plant vitality through specific Biodynamic preparations.
  • Biodynamic fertility is generated from within the farm, reducing reliance on imported organic amendments and fertilizers.
  • Consciously works with seasonal, solar, and lunar rhythms.
  • Supports seed integrity and diversity (saving seeds, using only organic and Biodynamic seeds, favoring open-pollinated and heirloom varieties).
  • Approaches pests and diseases holistically (seeking to understand underlying imbalances and shift farming practices to bring the whole farm into balance).
  • Biodynamic farmers treat animals with the utmost respect.
  • Encourages the gardener/farmer to cultivate daily awareness and mindfulness practices, staying inwardly and outwardly attuned to the spirit of the farm & farmer.
  • Biodynamic certification upholds standards of agricultural integrity, ecological diversity, and social responsibility, far surpassing USDA Organic standards. Join with us in supporting holistic agriculture committed to regenerative ways of thinking, working, and living.
