Gaia's Meet Your Herbs™
Trace the purity, integrity, and potency of your herbs.
With knowledge comes empowerment. With empowerment, there is a renewed sense of awareness. And with awareness comes the ability to make healthy choices. This is why Gaia is the only medicinal herb manufacturer that assures you of purity, integrity, and potency in our products by allowing you to truly “Meet Your Herbs.”
Simply follow the steps below to trace the story of your herbs from seed to shelf. It’s our way of helping you reclaim control of your own well-being, gain knowledge you can share, and participate more fully in the dynamic relationship connecting plants and people.
Step 1. Find the Meet Your Herbs ID number on the back of any Gaia Herbs product.
Step 2. Enter the Meet Your Herb ID number at the new GaiaHerbs.com to learn more about the source of the herbs. Meet Your Herb app is also available for mobile phone at the App Store.
Step 3. All traceable aspects of the herbs will be displayed, including (when available) how the herbs were grown, harvested, extracted, and validated
How we proceed is as important as what we produce.
Our process is defined by the equation “Purity + Integrity = Potency.” These are the pillars that support our beliefs, our actions, and our commitment to providing herbal remedies that offer optimal vitality.
Each herb must be cultivated in accordance with Nature’s intent.
As we create herbal medicines, we must ensure the fullest possible expression of each herb.
It is only through our dedication to purity and integrity that we can deliver the powerful effects of each herb.
Stringent Organic Certification
Since our founding in 1986, Gaia Herbs has been committed to upholding the rigorous standards required of a Certified Organic Grower (COG) as determined by Oregon Tilth, one of the strictest and most stringent organic certifiers in the nation. As a result, Gaia Farm (established in 1997) has earned its reputation as one of the leading growers and producers of Certified Organic herbs and herbal products in the United States.
We chose to meet the standards of Oregon Tilth specifically because they are the most uncompromising and thorough certifying bodies associated with sustainable approaches to agricultural production systems, processing, and handling. Each year, Oregon Tilth inspectors evaluate every aspect of our land, production methods, and facilities, including the assessment of our organic seed sourcing, cover cropping practices, crop rotation, soil fertility programs, pest control programs, machinery maintenance, greenhouse practices, neighboring land uses, crop washing practices, crop segregation, plant use and destination, and water use, as well as administrative and documentation practices.
Upholding these standards, Gaia Farm cultivates more than 5 million individual plants (representing XX species) during each annual growing season. These crops include Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea purpurea, Skullcap, Valerian, Gotu Kola, Holy Basil, Nettles, California Poppy, Dandelion leaf, Dandelion root, Burdock root, Ginkgo leaf, Hawthorn leaf, Hawthorn flower, and Elder flowers.
