Why We Source Filipino Ingredients from the Motherland

Why We Source Filipino Ingredients from the Motherland


Meet Luz Neri, a native earth goddess and agripreneur from Midsayap, Cotabato, on the island of Mindanao, Philippines. 

Her humble beginnings in creating herbal products started in 2010 with nothing but a hundred pesos (equivalent to $2 USD), mortar, and pestle in hand. 

As founder and manufacturer of her company Manna’s Alternatives Herbal Products, she has since then grown her business to a thriving operation with other fair-trade cooperative farmers cultivating certified organic crops.

She was awarded in 2014 the TOFA (The Outstanding Farmer of the Philippines) National Gold Award, amongst other designations of honor for farmer entrepreneurs. 

Herbalaria is blessed to source ingredients Neri creates including Sambong, Guyabano, Lagundi, Mangosteen, Moringa, and Turmeric.  All this plant medicine resonates energy of ancient land from which they were grown in.  It is especially important to have that energy incorporated into the formulation and production of Herbalaria products. 

We recognize Luz Neri for her pioneering spirit and being a source of inspiration for all POC women entrepreneurial farmers.
