A place to discover, to create, to be a maker of your own story.

In 1997, Brett Cook co-founded Apothecary Tinctura as the primary medicine maker. If you ask him why he'll say it was just in his bones. He is a maker: whether that is his famous baked goods, a house, or herbal formulas nuanced with flavors and energetics, he loves the process of creating things that make people happy.

Though he didn't set out to make plant medicines, growing up in Portland, Oregon Brett was no stranger to the healing power of nature. After graduating from the Siebel Institute in 1995, life and circumstance presented him with this opportunity. He quickly  discovered that he could fuse his passion for brewing with the craft of making high quality medicinal plant extracts. Over the years Brett has studied plants, wild-crafting, medicine-making and has developed a great love for planting trees...all over Denver. He also became a Certified Aromatherapist with Kurt Schnaubelt at the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy. Now, almost 20 years later, Brett continues to make  Apothecary Tinctura's high quality organic and sustainably crafted herbal tinctures and extracts locally in our lab.
