About Holy Basil: One of our most favorite herbs, we hand harvest this plant weekly throughout the summer months amidst happy bees, while enjoying its intoxicating fragrance. Several hundred sacred basil plants grace Avena’s biodynamic gardens. It is the fresh flowering tops we gather for our extract, glycerite, and teas. Revered in Ayurvedic Medicine, this herb calms and opens the heart and mind, engenders a sense of compassion and devotion, strengthens the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems, uplifts the spirit, and brings balance and peace to one’s heart and home.

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.
