Herbal medicine doesn't have to be complicated nor intimidating. I have developed a complete line of liquid formulas to nourish your mind/body/spirit with the most potent medicines. My extraction protocol release the full spectrum of the plants' constituents which makes it highly available and easier for your body to quickly absorb.

 

I believe that adding more plant based nutrients is an achievable goal and my formulas aim to assist you on that path. Your trust and wellness is at the center of my practice. My hope is for these herbal medicines to bring you the nourishment you deserve.

on My ethics

All comes from a place of love and intention... Besides being an herbalist, I am also a Reiki master and an addiction counselor. It was crucial for me to provide our people in recovery with plant supplements. This gave birth to the non-alcoholic line! Which also benefits pregnant mamas, children, our animal friends and more. I have developed an extraction method that allows for an increased potency level in comparison to traditional herbal vinegars or Oxymels, while preserving the health benefits of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. You may want to know that Jaia Devi's artisanal handcrafted goods are made in small batches with the most potent, sustainably wild-crafted plant medicines. From plants to packaging, everything is ethically sourced. No plastic nor harmful chemicals have been used and people's work is valued by paying them a fair trade. Additionally, my herbal offerings have been prayed upon and energized with Reiki energy and healing crystals.

on liquid herbal supplements

homemade-cannabis-tincture-ingredients.j

Due to their liquid form, my Herbal Synergies are immediately assimilated into the bloodstream. Actually, liquid herbal supplements are said to have an absorption rate of approximately 95%. They also have a high concentration that is about four times more than vitamin capsules. This results in higher bio-availability and activity as well as greater health benefits!

It is also vital to keep in mind that digestion only transforms vitamins into materials that it can easily use to enhance the body’s general constitution. Also, digestion starts in the mouth which my formulas engage! A tablet requires complete digestion before it is capable of providing any benefits in the body. It has to be digested into absorbable materials or else only 30% of it is going to be successfully absorbed.  Since they do not rely on digestion, liquid herbal supplements are directly absorbed into the body!

on sustainable Wild-crafting

By gathering my own medicines carefully and conscientiously, I can be assured that my medicines are fresh and of high quality. Additionally, I reduce the environmental impact of packaging and transportation.
I forage my herbs in pristine environments using sustainable practices:

  • I only take up to 1/3 of the plant = I do not stress it and leave plenty behind so they can reproduce

  • I avoid endangered species

  • I pay my respects to the spirits of the land

Did you know that non-natives often displace native species by competing with them for natural resources? These have not evolved locally with the same checks and balances that native plants have experienced. Therefore, by favoring them, I assist native plants in re-propagating!

on Flower essences

The living forces of nature collected from the blooms of our flowering plants embody the distinct imprint of each flower and are used in our emotional healing.
Flower Essences

  • balance our energy pattern by stimulating lasting changes, rather than cover up our symptoms as many allopathic medicines do

  • are safe to be used by anyone - adults, children, babies, pregnant women, the very ill, even pets and plants

  • are all natural and non-habit-forming.

Dr. Edward Bach, was the (modern) founder of flower essence therapy. He was a pioneer within the medical community, in understanding the connection of our emotional bodies to our physical health. I appreciate his work in uniting ancient wisdom to modern science and in bringing these healing modalities to the rest of the world. I feel compelled to remind us that his work was greatly inspired by the ancestral traditions of Celtic medicine women. Flower essences have ever since been used to treat the underlying emotional causes of diseases. Find them alongside in our Earth Alchemy line.

on AROMATHERAPY

Aromatherapy is a fascinating alternative medicine that involves the use of volatile plant materials that can be aromatically inhaled by patients or used topically for a wide variety of health conditions.
Studies have shown that essential oils can have both sedative and stimulant effects, plus positive effects on the immune system and central nervous system. We can use it to relieve anxiety & depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, cure headaches, boost cognition, induce sleep, reduce pain, improve digestion, and increase circulation.

You may want to know that the use of essential oils for therapeutic, spiritual, hygienic and ritualistic purposes goes back to a number of ancient civilizations including the Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans who used them in cosmetics, perfumes and herbal medicines. Find them in our Lava Stone line.

A love note awaits for you...

In the spirits of honoring our mother-ship, our traditions and our ancestral legacy, I present to you Jaïa Devi: The Apothecary.

 

I have rejoiced in remembering our ways by speaking the language of the flowers, bees, birds and water as we forever flow throughout the seasons.

The herbs gathered to make these elixirs have been initially wild-crafted at the foothills of the Marble Mountains, and Trinity Alps of the Pacific Northwest.They were found in a pristine environment... habitat of the wild salmon, seen swimming upstream along the Klamath and Trinity rivers. A delicacy praised by the bald eagle, red feathered hawk and bear. On those warmest mid-summer days, as I ventured through majestic white Oaks, Manzanitas and Cedar Trees, I could notice St John’s Wort golden blossoms calling for our attention. Wild yarrow was found in sand dunes, right as the magnificent ancient Redwood forest ends and meets the Ocean, energizing it’s every particle with vigorous Pacific ions.

As I moved closer to the first nation of this land, it’s powerful plant allies arose from the earth upon my watch... As the wind caressed its leaves, it’s silver reflection shined through the fields, it is then that sacred Mugwort joined the party! I have done my best in honoring the ways that these plants were traditionally wild-crafted in an ethical and sustainable manner. Know that I pledge allegiance to the moon and to all four directions; that these plant allies have been prayed upon as they volunteered into bringing us all good medicine for the mind, body and soul.

I have now relocated to the foothills of the Appalachian mountain range, where I look for potent herbal medicine.

It has brought me tremendous joy and pride to prepare these concoctions for you. It would be a great privilege of mine to continue to be trusted with providing you with earth’s finest magic, healing, empowering and nurturing abilities as we all evolve into more resilient human beings.

Yours truly,

Leila
