OUR ORIGINS

L’ART DE DOKTÉ FEUILLE

Within the heart of Haiti's lush wilderness, the transformative power of plants takes center stage, and alongside them, the Doktè Feuilles. Also known as leaf doctors, these herbal experts have always possessed an innate understanding of the healing properties of these native plants and herbs.

While FURCY Botanik is based in the US, we proudly draw inspiration from Haiti and the healing properties of its indigenous plants. Our creativity is sparked by the charming mountain town of Furcy, where these exceptional ingredients are known to make us well inside and out and are still sourced by these local healers.
