Lapland: Where the wild herbs are


Lapland is wild, pristine nature. Lapland is magical winters with Northern lights. And Lapland is: intensive summers and the famous midnight sun.

Herbs, berries and mushrooms are thriving in the vast forests of Finland’s Northernmost region where they enjoy 24 hours of sunlight and the cleanest air and water in the world. Lapland’s herbs are really something. They are used in kitchens and for medicinal purposes since time immemorial and now a new generation of entrepreneurs and foodies is setting out to put these wonderful natural goodies on the shelves next to chia seeds and goji berries.

One of them is Arctic Warriors, a small company from Narkaus near Rovaniemi that specializes in Lapland’s wonderful herbs. We have been working with Arctic Warriors from the beginning and found them to be a wonderful partner full of passion and optimism. Their products are unique and of superb quality and you will have a hard time finding something similar elsewhere as they are as Finnish as it can get. Arctic Warriors obtain all their ingredients from local farmers and wild herb pickers to ensure both quality of the products and that the local business life in Lapland is thriving.  It’s safe to say they are deeply rooted in their home region (pun absolutely intended).

Their most used ingredients are roseroot (rhodiola rosea), angelica (angelica archangelica) and nettle. Roseroot is also known as the “ginseng of the North” and enhances physical and mental performance while angelica has strong antibacterial properties and boosts the immune system. Nettle, which most people know only as a nasty weed that hurts when you touch it, is actually a nutrient rich herb growing right in front of your nose. It contains large amounts of vitamin C and minerals such as iron and calcium. Now doesn’t that sound good?

Arctic Warriors flagship products come in the form of shots that you can put either directly in your mouth or you can add them to tea, yogurt smoothies and more. Currently they are available as Sinni, Mahti and Puhti. The shots serve different purposes and we encourage you to check the product pages out for more precise information. They are just great! Angelica is not only used in the shots but its seeds are also a wonderful support in fending off the flu and in treating a sore throat.

Let Lapland’s herbs enchant you. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
