What is a Compounding Botanical Dispensary?

Providing customized herbal medicine support is a dedicated passion for Emery Herbals.  For over 20 years Colleen Emery has provided herbal medicine support through a barrier free, client specific, clinical herbal medicine practice. Working with clients 1:1 provides a robust opportunity to create holistic treatment plans that offer a full range of supports to encourage wellness, allowing people to thrive.

The Dispensing Process: After a wellness consultation is conducted the practitioner creates a treatment plan that includes a client specific herbal medicine formulae. The formulas are then compounded by our trained herbalists in our Botanical Dispensary and dispensed directly to the client within the client, practitioner relationship.

Emery Herbals Compounding Botanical Dispensary houses an East West focused approach with a diverse inventory of raw herbs, tinctures, essential oils, teas and health related items. Sourcing consciously gathered and cultivated herbs is a passion for Emery Herbals since our inception. Our sacred relationship to our natural environment is instilled in our commitment to providing access to the lowest impact, consciously sourced herbs grown through local farms, privately owned wild lands, and ethical world suppliers.
