Welcome to Orenda Herbal! All Orenda Herbal products are lovingly handblended with organic ingredients (local when available) and intentions of bringing you wellness, balance, and peace. Our gratitude to Poppy Swap for their Spring 2012 profile of Emily, found at this link.
Orenda is an indigenous North American word used to signify life force energy...spiritual essence...or Qi.
Orenda Herbal is a family owned company committed to honoring the spiritual essence within our human family, our plant allies, and the planet that supports us by providing lovingly handcrafted, herbalist formulated organic products for mind, body, and spirit.
We source from local and labor-friendly farms who cultivate herbs using practices which support the environment. We strictly avoid adding chemicals to our products which can harm our our bodies and our environment. We create our products in small batches by hand according to lunar and planetary cycles, to offer you the highest quality products with the purest energetic and biochemical qualities possible that support your health, the health of our community, and the health of the planet.
Orenda Herbal was founded in 2004 on the belief that our greatest opportunity to make change in the world begins with ourselves, and on the belief that emotional and environmental wellness are intimately connected to our physical health. With these in mind and heart, we began formulating herbal products to support mind, body, and spirit, while ensuring our practices supported ecological health. Our greatest guidance in our work comes when we commune with the plants and dig our fingers in the dirt.
Founder and co-owner Emily Ruff, a community herbalist and educator, developed formulas from years of experience and training. Alongside the wisdom and healing hands of co-owner Jacqueline Feasel, community herbalist and licensed massage therapist, the two handblend products with the attention to detail and healing energy our loyal customers have come to expect from our products. Their original blends offer the rich health benefits of high quality botanicals, bringing you wellness, balance, and peace.
