Adriana Ayales is a rainforest herbalist, medicine maker, educator, and the owner of Anima Mundi Herbals. She was born and raised in Costa Rica and has extensively studied several healing traditions, alongside master herbalists and shamans for more than 13 years. Adriana started Anima Mundi in Brooklyn, NY, to bring ancient remedies to the modern world. Her heart's purpose is to create a farm-to-pharmacy experience that not only offers a sustainable system of healing but contains within its core the pursuit to wholeness. She believes that by preserving ancient forms of Indigenous botany, we keep alive a very sacred aspect of our source.
