THE STORY OF FARMACY:
We endure a continual amount of stress throughout any given day. Whether it’s work anxieties, financial hardship, raising children, lack of sleep, or even something as minor as missing a meal, we unknowingly suffer from the ramifications of the day. This type of emotional and physical deprivation can have major consequences for our mental and physical state and can harm our overall well-being. Farmacy was forged by the need to restore balance and train our bodies to manage stress. Each product has been carefully curated and chosen for its medicinal purposes and is comprised of non-GMO, locally sourced ingredients. From energy levels to mind to immune system, let’s get back to a state of balance.
