Biotanical Health was founded by our herbalist Amina Christy in 1998. Back then Amina shared a clinic with other holistic practitioners, and recommended herbal remedies to their clients, as well as her own.
In the past, she used to mix up her formulas for her clients to boil up at home, but found that more and more of her clients were asking for encapsulated herbs. Encapsulated herbs are herbs that have been finely ground and put into a capsule for easy use.
It took several months of fact finding to find an ethical organic manufacturer in the USA to produce Amina’s formulas in vegan capsules, but as soon as she did, her client base grew by word of mouth.
In fact, many of our customers were referred to us by kinesiologists, acupuncturists, reflexologists, holistic doctors, nutritionists, massage therapists, reiki practitioners, other herbalists and even life coaches! Our products are endorsed by doctors and dietitians for safety and effectiveness
