I am thrilled to announce, that Maitri Verde finally found a new home for our USA base and global distribution in a charming town of San Rafael, in the heart of Bay Area in California. I am lucky to share the laboratory space and our passion for plant medicine with a dear friend, colleague, master alchemist and a teacher of botanical cosmetics Alice Duvernell, founder of Biophilia Botanicals.
Alice Encinas Duvernell, MA, is a French Ethno-Botanist who specializes in restorative community herbal aromatic therapies and product design for healing, culinary and cosmetic purposes.
The cozy and fully equipped lab is located on Mission Avenue, next to the Church of Saint Raphael / Mission San Rafael Arcángel. It was founded in 1817 as a medical asistencia ("sub-mission") of Mission San Francisco de Asís. It was a hospital to treat sick Native Americans, making it Alta California's first sanitarium.
Archangel Raphael, whose name means ‘God heals’, is the archangel designated for physical and emotional healing. In Hebrew the word “rophe” means 'to heal’. Archangel Raphael not only helps in healing individuals but also helps healers in their healing practice. He can help reduce addictions and cravings and is powerful in healing other injuries and illnesses, with cures often occurring immediately. Archangel Raphael aids in restoring and maintaining harmony and peace. He is also the patron of travelers, watching over them to ensure a safe and harmonious journey. Working in conjunction with Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael helps to clear away fears and stressors that maybe adversely affecting your health.
I feel blessed to have such a powerful saint patron and grateful for this new incredible business collaboration!
