About Milk Thistle: Our herbalist was inspired to plant more milk thistle in Avena's biodynamic gardens after seeing it growing in the fields in Sicily. Students and visitors often comment on the uniqueness of these large fleshy, green and milk mottled leaves, and their lovely, purple thistle-like flowers. This Mediterranean herb supports healthy liver and kidney function, promotes the production of healthy liver cells, and optimizes the detoxification process.
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.
