CoreyPine started making his own herbal extracts while in herb school, both to be able to make individualized formulas to meet his clients’ needs, and because many of the local herbs were not available in commerce. Over the years, he found some of these formulas to be so effective that he started Pine’s Herbals to make them available to the public.
Pine’s then expanded from CoreyPine’s kitchen table to a tincture-making lab in a commercial building, and from pints and quarts of individual herbs to gallons. In 2014, the company hired its first employee to help initiate new systems and standards and increase efficiency in production. Since then, we’ve grown to a close-knit staff of four (CoreyPine and 3 part-time employees), and have created systems to track all of our tinctures from harvest to shelf. We’ve also updated our labels to reflect the company's image and level of professionalism.
We have always focused on plants that we’ve harvested ourselves from the wild, and we also support local organic and biodynamic herb farmers to provide the highest quality and freshest herbs – because an extract can only be as good as the herbs that go into it.
Pine's Herbals strives to increase health and joy through plant medicine.
