With a background in Rolfing (Structural Integration), Owner and Founder Scott Linde began to notice profound shifts in his own body and consciousness with the addition of tonic herbs and superfoods to his diet. Sun Potion evolved from Scott’s personal motivation to source the highest quality tonic herbs, algae, greens, and mushrooms from around the globe. With the natural tendency to share with others, Scott began to offer the foods to friends and clients, and the company formed in response to the positive shifts in the community’s health and organically growing demand for these Transformational Foods.
Created by Los Angeles-based Belgian artist Delphine Lippens, Humble Ceramics was born in the summer of 2010. What you see today is the evolution of an exploration in clay.

The work is both rustic and modern, timeless and new, familiar yet fresh, discreetly beautiful, quietly powerful with clean lines, well-defined boundaries and complex simplicity. The intention behind the work is to ground, center and be present. It’s also about raising the frequency of one’s environment and self, thus creating a matrix of healing for the planet.

From Sarah Engelhart each alchemical chocolate bar is lovingly hand crafted in her home kitchen in Venice, California. She uses freshly stone-ground organic cacao. The organic honey is sourced from a 100% solar powered honey farm, where it takes a single bee her entire lifespan (1 month) to produce 1 teaspoon of honey. Each recipe also contains organic mucuna pruriens from Sun Potion, which provides an extra boost of 15% L-dopa (dopamine precursor).

Omica Organics is directly associated with Sophia’s Gardens, a single family-owned biodynamically-run farm in Sebastopol, California, that grows specifically for them.

This is a true liquid extract that has not been spray-dried, and only slightly filtered, leaving the beneficial micronutrients intact. The result is an aromatic, dynamic sweetness without the bitterness associated with other stevia products.
