HAPPY FRIENDS TINCTURE
HAPPY FRIENDS HERBAL TINCTURE
Prepared in a FDA registered facility
The concept of Happy Friends was put together with a focus set on deep healing. Created by artist Bana Bongolan, and certified herbalists Melissa K. Pierce and Dr. Christara Avaness.
Whether you’re creative, analytical, anxious, hardworking, slow-paced, fast-paced, etc. or all the above, this product could be for you.
Happy Friends was formulated with the mission to target mental health in a world where it isn’t prioritized enough, and quite frankly, too inaccessible.
The name Happy Friends was chosen for the simplicity of the message it provides – we all want to see our friends happy and thriving, and sometimes we are that friend who needs a pick-me-up. This product is best to be taken daily for its effects, this way, it can build in your system. It can also be taken in a moment where you may need calming energy, or a drive to keep on going throughout the day.
The story of this product lies behind the people who brought it together. Artist Bana Bongolan has many successes on her resume, but that has not come without stride. Although she is now sober, she has struggled with mental health and drug abuse for years, as well as some of her friends. One of her previous ideas included a CBD line to help her peers ease their anxiety and overcome addiction, but was quickly shot down with the rise of the pandemic. Bana Bongolan is a visionary and creative director who is able to make dreams transition to reality.
When she met herbalists Melissa K. Pierce and Dr. Christara Avaness, this idea was able to bloom. Sometimes, all that’s missing is a few people with different backgrounds to make magic come to life.

Melissa K. Pierce is a 7th generation Texan published author/poet, model, astrologer and certified herbalist who followed the pursuit of her dreams all the way to sunny southern California. With a passion for plant medicine, she found an herbalism school located on a farm in the mountains of Malibu where she learned the healing and medicinal properties of plants, ranging from wild weeds to herbs you’d find in a kitchen cabinet. Anxiety and depression is no stranger to her, which is why she was so easily able to decide which herbs would be perfect for this blend.
Dr. Christara Avaness first awakened to the power of plant medicine when her father had a heart attack when she was 14 years old. She witnessed how lifestyle changes and herbal medicine empowered her father in his healing process and ultimately supported his full recovery. Since that time, she has dedicated herself to the extensive study of herbal medicine and learning from natural healers around the world. She ultimately decided to attend medical school so that she could help bridge the alternative and allopathic realms in order to facilitate true healing.
