About Our Products
We stock only the highest quality plants and natural preparations available. After all, a medicine can only be as powerful as the starting material. A plant or fungi is best utilised as fresh, alive and as untouched by the hand of man or machine as possible. This helps to capture and preserve the life force from the living organism; the spirit of the plant. It is through this life force that the healing wisdom is transmitted.
We focus on community-minded projects, to cultivate sustainable relating.
Many of our products are grown in our own nurseries & gardens, cultivated under permaculture principles and supported by synergist plant, fungi & bacterial allies. The neural-network of the interconnected kingdom of nature is tapped into a self regulatory system of sustenance. We draw from this power source in our approach to living & healing.
Synergy in the wholesome. Perfection in nature.
We therefore use whole & fresh plant extractions where-ever humanly possible as there are often many beneficial components to a plant that are compromised when standardised & isolated. The spirit of the plant is more accessible in a digestible, yet raw form. This is the ethos of our products. A balance between removing any interference between plant & person, and delivering a potent supportive medicine.
Healing is our journey, and nature is our guide.
Creator & Director of EntheoBotanica
“I have come to understand herbal medicine as a part of mankind’s placement and movement across the land. Not just a remedy; a complex relationship that weaves us into the Earth’s soil. That we are by extension an enfooted plant and an embodied microbe. Likewise a plant, an Earthed human.”
Rachel Maree is a Western Herbal Medicine therapist, facilitator of rites of passage, forager, medicine maker, traditional body worker and musician. Co-founder of Mulai Lagi Iboga, an addiction interruption and psychospiritual retreat service in Australasia utilising Eboka for initiation purposes, she works with matters of healing and sickness, utilising relationship and herbal medicine as a mechanism of reconnection with the Self.
She has been initiated into the Bwiti sect Mabanji, a living and growing feminine Gabonese tradition that utilises Iboga as a sacrament of transition and embodiment teacher. Her interest in ethnobotany has led her to pockets of Indigenous cultures across the globe to learn from their relationships with plants, including their use of specific styles of music for enhanced communication & integration whilst in shamanic spaces. She works from the Sunshine Coast, Australia, as a health practitioner, teacher, and musician. She has studied Western Herbal Medicine & traditional bodywork, and runs the online plant medicine platform EntheoBotanica, as well as being the creator of the herbalist conference Rebel Herbal.
Akin To Nature
The Principles of Natural Medicine
FIRST DO NO HARM
Primum Non Nocere
THE HEALING POWER OF NATURE
Vis Mediatrix Naturae
DENTIFY & TREAT THE CAUSE
Symptoms express the bodies attempt to heal, & should not merely be suppressed. Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying root cause.
HEAL THE WHOLE PERSON
View the body as an integrated whole with physical, mental, emotional & spiritual aspects. The harmonious functioning of these aspects is essential for healing.
THE DOCTOR AS TEACHER
The practitioner’s role is to educate the patient to take responsibility over their own health. The doctor-patient relationship acts to enable the patient to heal themselves.
Prevention is the best cure
The ultimate goal of health care is to prevent sickness. Building health works better than curing dis-ease. Focus on overall health, wellness & vitality as dis-ease prevention.
