Cintamani Tonics has arisen from a deep dedication to sharing the wisdom of plants with the world.


Cintamani (Chin-ta-mani) is a Sanskrit term for "Wish Granting Jewel," and can also be correlated to the "Philosophers Stone" of Western Alchemy.  There are numerous depictions of this "wish fulfilling jewel" in the wisdom traditions of Asia, including India, China, and Japan.


The Cintamani stone is a representation of true freedom, a gift of grace.


In Asian mythology, Guru Dzambala is the giver of this magical stone.  Anytime that an individual moves in the slightest direction that is of benefit to All life, Dzambala waves his staff wildly in celebration and offers a wish granting cintamani to help the individual fulfill their liberating dream.


This name felt fitting for an offering of herbs, teas, and information that supports our path of cultivation in this blessed life.


May Cintamani Tonics support others in knowing and fulfilling the deepest calling of their heart.  Thank you for being here!
