Anima Mundi was created by Adriana Ayales as a means of introducing ancient remedies to the modern world. Before landing in New York City, she was born and raised in the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest where she grew immersed in the shamanic energy of the jungle. She brought the soul of the rainforest in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where she opened her herbal apothecary. Anima Mundi Apothecary sources fresh, vibrant medicinal botanicals directly from native people within Central and South America. Her work supports sustainability, true fair trade practices, permacultural outreach, and small local businesses.
