Why? Product Potency
When we’re harmoniously aligned with the moon and stars, the earth yields its most potent herbs and plants.
Biodynamic farming or biodynamic agriculture is a popular holistic technique that works in harmony with the seasons, and cycles of the planets.
It’s used across many different fields of consumption including tea, food and wine, resulting in crops that are harvested at their peak absorbency. Herbs and plants are more nutrient rich when considering this method than using traditional practices, and we’re increasingly seeing this considered around the ingredients that are applied or ingested on our skin.
In ancient Egypt and other tribal cultures it was medicine men, healers and the wise elders that would prepare important herbal remedies and ointments for consumption.
These prominent figures of the community knew the celestial rhythms, and it was they that discovered the optimum times for harvesting and sowing seeds in line with the stars. Essentially, they wanted to deliver the best solutions to their people, creating a better quality of product by natures cycles and the processing of ingredients.
Here are some modern day brands that do the same, with their supercharged best sellers…
