Maya started almost 13 years ago as a dream: being able to access and to make available; quality ethnobotanicals. The enthusiasm with which we have been received, has enabled Maya to have fast grown to be a vibrant and positive portal of connection with ethnobotanicals and other rarities from around the world. And judging from the great amount of loyal and returning customers, we seem to be doing something right!
Here we are.. Maya Ethnobotanicals.
We pride ourselves in supplying the most known ethnobotanical plants, and a wide variety of other rare plants, incenses and related items, as well as handicrafts and fine arts from around the world.
We hold great value in old cultures, their art, visions, and their ancient knowledge of "teacher" plants. We believe that teacher plants are crucial for the spiritual awareness and evolution of mankind. In a time when we have become disconnected from nature, the power and potential of these plants must be acknowledged and embraced. They are tremendously important to medicine and technology, and can be an important tool for to people to learn, understand and appreciate the mysteries of nature. Reconnecting with the plants, reconnects us with reality, and realigns us with nature to promote our spiritual growth. If the purpose of evolution is expanding in perfection, in harmony with nature, we need to acknowledge the teacher in the plant, respect it and learn from it.
It is important to know that according to the 1997 novel foods regulation, any food and food ingredient that was not part of the European diet before 1997, must undergo food safety and nutrition testing by a national authority before they can be sold anywhere in the EU. The lack of evidence of significant history of consumption of many ethnobotanicals, means they can not be sold as food. Therefore, our plants are not sold for the purpose of consumption. We sell botanical specimen of ethnographic value and interest only.
