Meet Our Plants

Herbal Profiles & Their Medicinal Uses

Healing can be defined as the way in which one becomes whole again. Plants have the power to heal physical, mental and emotional pain or discomfort. Whether as a tea or tincture, an oil or salve, traditional wisdom teaches us that plants embody energy and essence. And integrating more plants into our daily lives can impact our wellbeing for the greater good. These are just a few of the plants we work with at Omcali.


Acai: Extremely high in vitamin C, acai helps fight free radical damage and supports youthful radiant skin. A 2006 study conducted by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that acai had by far the highest oxygen radical scavenging activity of any food measured to date, strongly supporting the acai's antioxidant properties. Research has also found the acai berry to be one of the most beneficial natural ingredients for the treatment of hyperpigmentation.*

Adzuki Bean: Used in Japanese rituals for centuries to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, ground adzuki bean rejuvenates and brightens complexion.

It contains a group of compounds called sterolins that improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation, and promote excellent moisture retention. Due to a high concentration of vitamin E and tocopherols, argan helps stop free radical damage to the skin, while helping to reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin’s hydro-lipid layer.*
