About Mangata Apothecary
Mangata Apothecary offers a wide range of herbal skincare products for everyone in the family, including children. Natural, cruelty-free beauty products made from natural materials. Training in herbal medicine and DIY books are also available.
Stefanie grew up in Smithers BC, surrounded by nature. As a young girl she was fascinated with adults who had a connection with the land and knew how to use herbs as medicine. In her early 30’s she created Mångata Apothecary™, originally started in her kitchen in attempts to provide healthy options for her family as well as to avoid spending money on unnecessary, wasteful, and toxic products (Stefanie is a thrifter at heart and abnormally frugal!).
Stefanie currently holds degrees in both Intercultural Studies and Midwifery and is pursuing her Masters of Science in Herbal Medicine in order to solidify her herbal passion. In addition, she has spent over 2 years volunteering and providing midwifery care overseas. This education and experience has exposed her to much heartbreak and injustice. Mångata Apothecary™ is meant to not only create a passionate livelihood for her, but to be an outlet of generosity, healing, and resourcefulness.
It is a huge desire of hers to hear everyones stories, pull out knowledge, and share resources. Each product can be made by any of you as Stefanie has divulged her secret recipes in an e-book “Eating Weeds”. Grab a few pages of the book today (available to download for free) and try a few recipes yourself or stay alert to our social media pages and learn how to do-it-yourself through live videos and workshops. Herbalism is not meant to be hoarded, hidden, or exploited. It is ancient knowledge meant for everyone and everyone can do it!
If this is resonating with you and you have a connection with the land, reach out to her through the contact page as Mångata Apothecary™ is not only a product line but a lifestyle brand of sharing wisdom, resources, stories, perspectives and knowledge. We would love to feature you on our social pages and make sure to join our Facebook group “Mångata Herbal Bartering” to begin activating your inner herbalist.
Mångata Apothecary™ is a one woman show. Stefanie has struggled to fit into the prestigious “natural product” community as she seeks to stay true to the mandate of generosity and minimizing consumption. The products are made in small batches, in a small workshop, with a lot of heart. Many of the herbs are wildcrafted, the ingredients are locally sourced, and the packaging is recyclable. It’s grassroots baby! The real deal. So if thinking about making your own products seems messy, it is, but it’s so worth it, and we are here to guide the way.
All products are CertClean certified, meaning they have no nasties or toxic ingredients. We want to be know as a safe and clean brand and are working hard to provide you with that! Look for the stamp on the label and rest easy knowing it is effective and good for you!

Finally, in keeping with her passion for providing midwifery care overseas, a portion of each purchase made goes towards Cedar’s Network which provides health and midwifery care to Syrian Refugees (please see “Giving Back” tab below).
Lets pass on the wealth.
