Medera Apothecary is a small, artisan apothecary that takes the best of two worlds; traditional herbal philosophy and modern Western herbal medicine. Operated by a Melbourne herbalist with a love of plants, spagyric tinctures, and a fascination with the roots of Western herbal medicine and modern medicine as whole. Medera values sustainability in sourcing its ingredients and in the packaging it passes on to the customer.

Traditional philosophy

Medera's products are formulated using the traditional philosophy of whole plant synergy. No ingredients are refined down to single compounds. Medera prepares ethanol extractions and oil infusions using whole dried or fresh herbs. At Medera Apothecary, we use traditional, yet completely viable forms of extraction such as maceration and distillation. Extracts are created in small batches and never use chemical solvents. In fact, ethanol, natural carrier oils, and water are the only solvents ever used. This means Medera produces no chemical waste in the manufacture of its products.

About you

You love to give and you want to give something extra special. You know someone who needs a little extra self-love or who loves plants as much as you do. You couldn't think of a better way to let them know.
