Indigenous-inspired Herbal Products and
Cultural Experiences from the Jungle
Goals and Mission
Our mission at KIS Botanicals is twofold. First, we strive to keep our culture alive. We do this by community involvement and by providing an accessible farm and cultural experience for visitors through educational tours, workshops, and courses. Secondly, we partake in sustainable, traditional farming methods in order to produce our apothecary of artisanal products. We are a company run by native Costa Ricans who want to celebrate our culture and ancestral knowledge.
Our goals are to combine our family's traditional knowledge with some modern techniques to reawaken our community's interest in local medicinal plants, to protect and conserve the local indigenous ancestral plant knowledge, to educate visitors on our cultural uses of plants, to purposely and sustainably reforest the land, and stimulate our local economy.

TOURS AND WORKSHOPS
Are you traveling to Costa Rica and want to learn more about plants and local culture? Come learn from native Costa Ricans, the knowledge keepers within our community!
We offer medicinal plant and culture tours AND medicine making workshops. Contact us to set up a visit and learn with us. We can't wait to meet you!
As part of our philosophy, we have a deep respect for nature’s ways, which is why all of our products are 100% natural and farmed locally and responsibly. We farm most of the plant material ourselves, or we buy / trade with our neighboring farms to support our local economy.
All of our artisanal herbal products are hand-planted, hand-harvested, hand-packaged, and made with love. We use our deep ancestral knowledge to formulate our recipes and modern techniques to allow you to take medicine from the jungle home with you!
Currently, our products are available from our farm and a few local shops.
Contact us to learn more, or come visit us to see our artisanal herbal apothecary!
