Social Impact & Environmental Consciousness
"As a small business owner I have been given a gift. Traditional medicine has been my passion, and I am able to practice that passion every day. But caring for people and our planet is my responsibility. This is why I do all I can to give back to my community and practice stewardship every step of the way." Alicia M. Genna, MS, L.Ac.

Using organically grown and ethically wildcrafted products is important for our patients' health. But it is also vital to the sustainability of our environment. We personally know, or have thoroughly vetted these sources and they've passed our test with flying colors.
Fat of the Land Apothecary
FAT OF THE LAND is the love child of Anja Rothe, an old and dear friend. By using only ethically wildcrafted and organically grown plants in her products she is able to capture the potent medicine of the seasons. By packaging all her products in glass amber bottles and recycled paper she aims to preserve the vital force of the plants while reducing waste.
