In Sanskrit, “Ayu” means “life” and “Veda” means “science” hence Ayurveda represents ‘the science of life’. Ayurveda was developed in India 5000-6000 years ago. 

Ayurveda encompasses many different healing mechanisms including yoga, nutrition, lifestyle, meditation as well as massage and focusses on the whole person. It focusses on prevention, correcting imbalances in the body before it manifests itself into disease.

One key aspect of Ayurveda is the emphasis on plants, oils and herbs with Indian sages having accumulated a wealth of knowledge on over 20,000 medicinal plants and herbs found in India. Research extended to impacts on skin, hair and body and these are reflected in the products.
