In 1857, Johann Baptist Fleischmann received the concession to operate a pharmacy in Prien (Chiemgau Germany). In 1961 the siblings Fritz Reuther and Hannelore Warkentin took over the Marien pharmaceutical tradition and started to develop natural remedies. Even today, their recipes are the basis for some of our most wanted products.
Dr. Warkentin GmbH was founded by Hannelore's son and his Japanese wife Rie Nakajima. Their deepest wish was to enable Japanese mothers with young children to help themselves by shipping natural home remedies from Germany. For them, visiting a clinic for minor issues is difficult and the alternative with natural and safe self-care products makes every day life much easier. Nowadays, our portfolio comprises more than 100 products from Herbal tea to natural cosmetics. Every year and together with the encouragement of many supporters in Japan, we ship approx. 250,000 products from Bavaria to our loyal customers in Japan.
Nature offers tremendous self-care potential by providing powerful and at the same time gentle healing plants. Those plants are the basis for our products. We have to give back to nature by making sustainability a priority.
By sharing information and offering support we encourage to give self-care a try. Our natural and safe products are predestinated for self-care.
The experience of the power of self-care is a form of empowerment for many of our customers. Empowering yourself offers the opportunity to empower others.
Mrs. Sasazawa visited us in Tokyo last week. She let us know about her problems with regard to breastfeeding and mastitis. As these problems are quite common, we took some effort in pointing out what you can do to relieve pain and what you can do to immediately help yourself..."Customers Voice" EPISODES IN JAPAN
Every day after I got pregnant, I drink Pregnancy Tea because my friend recommended the tea to me. Herbal tea heals me. I am now in the last month of pregnancy. Because I've been drinking Pregnancy Tea continuously, my stomach has not stretched too much. In the winter I feel warm when I drink the tea.
Marien pharmacy offers many products of which "Women tea" is my favorite. I usually start drinking it 10 days before menstruation resulting in no irritations or depressions whatsoever. Beforehand, I used to take medication in the first phase of menstruation but do not need it anymore with that tea. When I forget to drink woman tea, I get PMS. That's why I'm so glad that I can do something about it now.
What I can say after nine weeks is this: This fermented garlic has a very positive effect on the digestive system. Although I eat a little more, I do not take it. You feel better!
