Us

The Early Days

Eclectic Echinacea Inc. began as a Certified Organic Herb Farm in North Saanich; on Vancouver Island,  in 1994. We believed; and we still believe, that you cannot manufacture a better herbal medicine than the herbs you start with. This was our answer to the quality question. As the "herbal renaissance" gathered strength and numbers in North America there came a supplier focus on Organics and Quality and Ethics in Wild Crafting.  Supplier focus on these things soon allowed us to pursue our true passion; taking crude herbs and transforming them into useful human medicines. Of course, we do this in the Eclectic traditions and still love to deal with farmers.

"Ask for it by name and accept no other"

Old Fashioned is Our Future

We are steeped in the Eclectic Tradition of Herbal Medicine. The Eclectic period in North America; 1845-1930, was when a group of Doctors who employed principally herbal medicines and maintained a number of medical schools were able to catalogue and codify western herbal medicine into a system that had taken literally 1000s of years to achieve in other cultures. Their knowledge was principally derived from administration of herbs and very careful observation coupled with an emerging herbal science. The Eclectics employed principally strong alcohol tinctures and extracts and is a tradition we honour with our products. Herbal usage declined in North America; but, continued in Europe where an emerging scientific herbalism confirmed many of the Eclectic's observations. We believe liquid extracts using hydro-alcoholic solutions for extraction represent the best form of herbal medicine.  If manufactured without heat they retain the phyto-profile of the whole herb.  All of the synergistic and balancing compounds found in the herb are represented in the final product. They are easy for the body to assimilate and highly bio-available.

Prairie Doctor Brand

As we expanded further beyond our first product; Echinacea, it became apparent that we needed a more encompassing identity and we chose Prairie Doctor Brand.  "Prairie Doctor" was a common name for Echinacea in Canada about 1900.  Still true our roots and still old fashioned.

 

Our Products

We continue to expand our line of high quality liquid extracts.  Every batch receives the hands on quality assurance of our first batch. Our time in the field has taught us patience, quality control and a respect for the herbs as they transition through quarantine, processing, bottling and shipping to a store near you. Try them for yourself and your family and you will agree with our admonition "Ask for it by name and accept no other"
