All About Ayurveda

What is Ayurveda and Why Do We Love it?

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is one of the oldest holistic healing systems, dating back more than 5,000 years. This ancient wisdom was discovered in the sacred texts in Ancient India, known as the Vedas, which also contained the first recordings of yoga. Ayurveda is regarded as the sister science to yoga. This practice rests on the principle of a balance between mind, body, and soul.

Why we are so inspired by Ayurveda?

Growing up in an Indian household, Ayurveda is an essential part of our culture. From the way we eat to the health and wellness practices we learn, Ayurveda is a large part of our every day lives. Nowadays, the Western world is also adapting Ayurvedic principles into their lifestyles! Ayurveda emphasizes good health and prevention and treatment of illness through lifestyle practices (such as massage, meditation, yoga, and dietary changes) and the use of herbal remedies.

Our East meets West Approach

Modern medicine has been crucial in fighting infectious diseases, but the find-it, fix-it, approach often ignores mental health and ignores the underlying causes of chronic disease. We combine adaptogens and hemp CBD to create functional healing blends that address the variety of internal and external cues of a body in need.

Whats are adaptogens?

In Ayurveda, healing is a multi-pronged approach, prescribing meditation, diet, exercise, and herbal remedies to regain physical and emotional balance. A part of the herbal regimen includes adding adaptogens. Adaptogens are herbal extracts that are known to aid the body's stress response. We offer ashwagandha as the key adaptogen in our Tranquil blend for Daily Stress Management
