The Tale of the Tonics

An herbalist with over a decade of experience working with plants (including 3 years of school studying clinical herbalism) - and a strong culinary background - Rachael Keener's muse and expertise lies in herbal formulation and recipe development. When crafting ALKAME CO's line of herbal powders, she places great care on both the art and science of formulation. Each of her formulas is more than the sum of it’s parts.

It’s about alchemy and how all of those parts marry—synergizing together and enhancing one another. Sometimes this synergy can be understood via research that has been borne out in a scientific laboratory, sometimes via wisdom that has been passed down through hundreds of years of traditional use and sometimes through Rachael's own extensive experience listening to and working with plants. The result is a tasty product line infused with reverence, expertise and intention. 

Good for you, the community, and the earth.
