“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates
My belief in the above mantra became much stronger the day I became a mother. Growing up in India, I experienced the healing power of Ayurveda, food, herbs & natural remedies. The joy of being a mom and being responsible for life pushed me more towards my beliefs inculcated since childhood. It was through Ayurveda - The ancient timeless wisdom, I took holistic approach for modern wellbeing.
Gaea Organics is a powerful union of ancient Ayurvedic timeless beauty rituals, traditional herbs, healing botanical oils & butters, restorative flowers, remedial spices, and purifying clays perfected by harmonious formulas to give your skin an everlasting glow. Gaea Organics aims to strengthen the microbiome of the skin and repair it for healthy, balanced, and magical radiance. Our vision is to honor your beauty by reconnecting you to mother earth.
I am a mom, a double Master's, avid reader, keen researcher, educator, blog writer and a strong proponent of holistic lifestyle. Personally, I had my share of going through roller coaster of health struggles which was enough to break my motivation and energy to fight. After I spent years bouncing from doctor to doctor I realized that they were only treating the symptoms. Medicine should alleviate and cure our symptoms without side effects. However, the modern medicine is not only limited to treating the symptoms but also can leave us with some serious side effects. It was only after being a mother myself that I fully understood what my mom used to say that "nature is the remedy to many modern-day problems".
I took health into my own hands and started researching to find answers to my own health struggles. After studying multiple holistic books, meeting one of a kind holistic doctor, I became a lifelong student of holistic nutrition and lifestyle. I took a deep dive into learning full spectrum of nutrition and got certified as ‘Holistic Nutrition Health Coach' and it helped me realizing the full potential of holistic ingredients and my understanding about human anatomy grew better.
Professionally, I think I found my calling when my personal learnings coincided with the professional world and I started to create Raw, Living, Natural, Non-Toxic, Organic & Luxurious skin care products with simple holistic ingredients. I believe in amalgamation of the research and ancient timeless traditional wisdom. Marrying them together and spreading the knowledge is my absolute passion.
Help us spread the joy, love and purity of Gaea - Goddess of Earth through Gaea Organics. Looking forward to this journey together!!
