About Equinox

History

Img big

Over 30 years ago we created an herbal salve using plants gathered from our farm to soothe the day-to-day wounds inflicted by fences, critters, and the rugged Appalachian terrain. The salve found its way to friends and neighbors, and before long we had people asking if they could buy it. From that humble beginning grew EQUINOX BOTANICALS™ and the herbal products we offer.

We believe that EQUINOX BOTANICALS™ is something special. You see, we believe that our products are only as good as the ingredients from which they are made. And the quality of our ingredients is intimately tied to the quality of the land that yields them.

Our farm, located in Southeast Ohio, "Appalachia's herb basket", is home to some of the largest wild populations of goldenseal, blue and black cohosh, wild ginger, and ramps in the United States as well as vast stands of ginseng, bloodroot, and countless other native medicinal herbs. Virtually all of the herbs we use in our products are either grown organically, without the use of any pesticides or chemical fertilizers, or ethically wild crafted right here in Southeastern Ohio. So we can be sure that only the freshest and highest quality herbs, harvested at the peak of their medicinal potency, go into our products. We can also make sure of something that's even more important - that the land, which cares for us, is being consciously tended in turn. In our 35 years on the farm, we have come to understand that the land is our steward as much as we are stewards of the land. To that end, our goal is as much about sustainable farming and harvesting practices as it is about producing the highest quality products available and we will never stray from organic practices or over-gather our herbs. All of our herbal products are hand crafted in small batches on our farm.

Standards

All our Equinox Botanicals™ products are made using only the highest quality herbs, the vast majority of which, are gathered or grown organically on our farm, or ethically wild-crafted in Southeastern Ohio . When outsourcing to meet demand, and for the ingredients we cannot possibly grow on our farm, such as Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Hemp Oil, we are ultra-selective to ensure that we use only the purest and most conscientious sources, and source locally whenever possible.

All our Botanical products including our Extracts, Ear Oil, The Golden Salve, and Hemp Oil Salve, are made right on our farm in small handmade batches, allowing us to closely monitor the quality of all our medicines, and personal care products.

It has always been our goal to manufacture the highest quality medicines and to make them available at a reasonable price, in the interest of benefiting the quality of life of our customers, while keeping in harmony with nature.

We have been making our products for over 30 years, and we hope to continue to do so for a long time to come.
