The Himalayan region is a vast storehouse of medicinal and aromatic plants, which have been used by indigenous people for healing and ritual purposes since ancient times. Fresh and pungent, the herbs we use are carried down from the Himalayas by knowledgeable caretakers of the world's most prolific herb garden. La-aditional uses of Himalayan plants extensively. We have created a range of products drawing upon these ancient traditions to bring the benefits of these herbs to a wider audience.
Most of our herbs come from remote, economically fragile mountain communities. By purchasing at the source whenever possible, we give harvesters (women are usually the herb-gatherers in these economically backward areas) maximum income for their raw materials. Our products are hand crafted by women, mostly from poor, remote communities and able to support their families through their work. La-Medicca supports fair trade and sustainable harvesting practices with no animal testing.
