Our mission

Herbal Medicine Reimagined

At Paonia Apothecary, we are rethinking how we look at Chinese medicine. By supporting locally grown Chinese herbs and incorporating powerful North American plants into our practice, we can proudly create effective and sustainable herbal products.

Our Vision

Connecting Our Local Community

Using locally grown herbs creates empowered independent economies. Not only do we keep the money flowing within our valley, but the medicine that we ingest into our bodies comes from our home soil. The minerals that are flowing in our water, the dirt that gets stuck under our fingernails. We can expand this to the wider North American continent in the context of Chinese herbal practitioners.

“Herbalism is based on relationship – relationship between plant and human, plant and planet, human and planet. Using herbs in the healing process means taking part in an ecological cycle.”
– Wendell Berry

Meet the Team

Paonia Apothecary believes in restoring our connection with each other and with the plant world via medicine.

We believe in a fair wage at all levels of the supply chain and that if we aren’t protecting the earth, we aren’t doing our jobs. – Amber & Jacquie
