What Is Ayurveda and What

Ayurveda is an ancient medicinal system that dates back to 5,000 years ago and it was first recorded in the ancient Indian language, Sanskrit.

And Ayurveda believes in treating the body as a whole including the mind, body, and spirit. It works to prevent illness and disease rather than treat it.

• Chemical-free

• Non-toxic

Because these herbs do not contain any substances besides themselves. These herbs are harvested from their respective plant and then processed for use.
