About Faunus Herbs

Faunus Herbs is a contract manufacturer offering the highest quality herbal tinctures, capsules, glycerites, oils and ointments. Most of our handcrafted products are made for leaders in the herbal supplement industry, exclusively for professional use.

We work with both fresh, living flowers and herbs, and the highest quality dried materials depending on the product. Our focus on quality means that we use either organically grown, or responsibly wildcrafted plants. We are regulated by Health Canada and hold an official Site License, and our farm and facility has also passed on-site inspection by the U.S. FDA. We have been certified organic and regularity inspected for over 35 years.

The flowers and herbs in the pictures on our website are from our farm, and yes… the people in the pictures are us! All of our marketing materials, websites, formulas and products are produced on our farm in rural Ontario, Canada. When you buy Faunus products, you are supporting a family farm business.
