About Us

Who We are

Here at MOSSY TONIC, we believe in supporting the body’s natural healing mechanisms and being good stewards to the Earth.

Mossy Tonic was founded by Tania Oceana, an Herbalist with a passion for sustainability, health and learning about the plants in the beautiful Pacific NW region she grew up in.

All of our formulas are blended in small batches by Tania, who has more than a decade of botanical exploration under her belt and a background in Traditional Western Herbalism.

We are a small women run and operated business in Portland, OR.

As We Grow

As our team grows,  and because we think education is a life-long adventure, we are also going to be hosting CLASSES AND HERB WALKS in the Portland Metro area. Highlights will include local plant identification, traditional uses for herbs, food-as-medicine and hands-on information about how to make your own herbal goodies. Click Here for more Information!

How We Stay Sustainable

ORGANIC SOURCING + COMPOSTABLE & RECYCLABLE PACKAGING

Whilst the popularity of natural healing paradigms become more popular, so too do new and exotic herbs come into popularity. We know how fun it is to learn all about a mysterious, wild herb that is found deep in a cliff valley halfway across the world; especially when it is renowned by the local inhabitants as a magical cure-all!

“This takes time, as all worthwhile things do. You are establishing a deep intimacy with another living being. One that has a life as important to it as yours is to you. That has a history, ancestors who have shaped the life you see now in this one moment of time. One that has hopes and dreams, purposeful existence. One that has other friends, offspring about whom it cares, troubles with  which it must struggle each day.” By Steven Buhner’s The Secret Teaching of Plants

However, if we can see areas as ecosystems, then we see that our own bio-regions (organic farms included) offer a plethora of their own magical and powerful herbs. These herbs are very often more suited to the health concerns of the inhabitants of that region, and allow us to access that deep healing while also rising to our important role as good stewards to the land. We always source Organically with the exception of a small handful of Ethically Wild-Harvested herbs. Moreover, As we grow we will be transitioning to Organic Only because we know that too many plants are becoming endangered and that even responsible harvesting cannot supply the amount of herbs that are being sought out.

Our Promise to you

Most importantly, we see how much this Earth provides for us, and will not sacrifice our values to provide our goods to you!

Above all, we know that the power in the medicine comes from quality ingredients, skillful formulation, and revering the health of the whole ecosystem (that includes you)!

In addition to Organic sourcing, our packaging includes only Eco-friendly compostable plastic bags, recyclable tins, recycled paper, and minimal recyclable packaging!
