Dynamic Roots Herbals

Dynamic Roots began laying down roots in 2013 with the SBDC. Dynamic Roots was inspired by 3 very passionate Rocky Mountain herbalists with the goal to grow, teach and share handcrafted herbal remedies that truly work! We now have over 40 products ready for market, a healthy membership, a distributors wait list and impressive first 2 years of sales. The SBDC helped facilitate taking our creative excitement and manifesting it into a business to be very excited about! Now that takes experience, fortitude, patience and dedication. And this is what we have seen and grown from.

Dynamic Roots cultivates vibrant herbal remedies that support the body’s seasonal rhythms and is working toward becoming a leading producer of handcrafted herbal remedies based upon high altitude grown medicinal herbs.

The SBDC continues to be instrumental in our foundational strength and future growth. And it’s fun! We have benefited tremendously from the SBDC in the following key areas of development:

  • Growing a multi-faceted, creative idea into a focused plan of action with business classes, private consultation and multiple resources
  • Continually setting business foundation that can support future movement with less risk, increased performance and smarter capital investment
  • Financial and budgeting consultation and education that is beyond valuable
  • Evaluating business planning from bigger picture goals to the finer details of marketing and sales strategies and keeping those details real and manageable

Based in Carbondale and Nederland, CO, Dynamic Roots has seen sales grow 6x, dozens of product formulations go to market and we are growing by leaps and bounds. We are so grateful and look forward to our continued work with SBDC!
