About Ginger Turmeric Elixir: The warming and pungent qualities of ginger and turmeric make for a perfect pairing in this delicious elixir. They both support healthy digestion and are known in the Ayurvedic tradition to enkindle agni (digestive fire) and clear toxins from the gut. Most herbalists worldwide agree that supporting good digestion and elimination is necessary for health and quality of life.

Turmeric supports liver function, aids detoxification, stimulates bile (which aids in the digestion of fats and oils), soothes the gut lining, and enhances healthy gut flora. Much modern research has pointed out how magnificent turmeric is for its anti-inflammatory properties.

For a nourishing and warming tonic, I like to place a half to a full dropperful of Ginger Turmeric Elixir on my tongue before eating, especially during the colder months. Both herbs support healthy immune function, help clear congestion in the head and chest, warm the body when chilled, and stimulate good digestion.

Ginger in the ancient Ayurvedic system from India is considered to be one of the most sattvic (promotes higher consciousness) spices. Fresh ginger is a rejuvenating herb, enhancing energy, stimulating immunity and respiratory health, improving digestion and elimination, and easing nausea and menstrual cramps.   

Safety Consideration: If you are using pharmaceuticals, please consult with your health care provider before taking herbs. If you are pregnant or nursing, please consult with your midwife or doctor around appropriate dosing of ginger and avoid therapeutic use of turmeric during pregnancy. Avoid turmeric if gallstones are present or in acute jaundice and hepatitis.

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.
