Meet the Visionary: Adriana Ayales
Anima Mundi is not just a brand; it is a living entity birthed from the heart and soul of Adriana Ayales, the dynamic founder and rainforest herbalist. Adriana, born amidst the lush landscapes of Costa Rica, possesses a deep-seated passion for ancient healing traditions, a passion she has nurtured by studying alongside master herbalists and shamans for over a decade.
While the vast, varied terrains of Costa Rica served as her childhood playground, the bustling streets of Brooklyn, NY, became the birthplace of Anima Mundi. This seamless blend of two worlds is symbolic of Adriana’s mission: to bridge ancient remedies to our fast-paced modern world. Her ambition is not just to provide a healing touch but to guide souls on their journey to complete wholeness.
In Adriana’s words, “I’m devoted to sourcing from honest farmers, wildcrafters and from indigenous peoples when possible, to alchemize and create truly high vibrational medicines for the mind, body, and soul.” Her dedication is evident in every product Anima Mundi offers, reflecting her commitment to preserving the sacred essence of indigenous botany.
The Magic of Formulation: Ancient Alchemy Meets Modern Healthcare
Anima Mundi’s quest began from a profound respect for nature and a desire for healthcare that’s in harmony with it. Drawing from ancient healing traditions, particularly from the lush landscapes of Costa Rica and the Amazon, Anima Mundi encapsulates a rich history of botanical wisdom. The brand seamlessly integrates Rainforest Tribal botany with the profound depths of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, resulting in eclectic and potent recipes aimed at promoting longevity and wellness.

Elixirs & Tonics: The Distilled Essence of Nature
The Elixirs and Tonics from Anima Mundi are more than just products; they are a labor of love, meticulousness, and ancient methodology. While elixirs are crafted through a unique decoction process to capture water-soluble herbal constituents, tonics offer a potent burst of nature, often extracted in ratios as concentrated as 8:1 or 10:1. The Adaptogenic Tonic and Soma Elixir, for instance, undergo a specialized crack cell wall extraction by slow cooking for 4-5 days, ensuring the true essence of their chemistry is captured.
Extract Powders: Purity at its Best
Anima Mundi’s extract powders resonate with authenticity, sourced directly from trusted small farmers. The meticulous extraction process involves low heat drying, ensuring the preservation of the plant’s chemistry. There’s also a rigorous quality check in place, ensuring no heavy metals or toxicity. Anima Mundi’s commitment to quality and sustainability can be seen in their diligent sourcing practices and their continuous effort to provide the purest form of nature’s bounty.
