About ygeiax :
Υγεία or Ygeía is an ancient Greek word that means health.
Preceding the inception of Ygeiax, we had arrived at a place in life where the questions that lie deep within became too loud to ignore. What was our role in our personal healing, and the healing of the planet? We followed a path of research, travel and experimentation that led to an understanding of the gravity of affairs on earth. We found answers and inspiration in nature, in the interconnectedness of everything. We saw if a region or group of people were ill there is a direct correlation to being disconnected from the land and plant medicines, consequentially the soil, the animals, all intertwined suffer. In this revelation it became clear anything we offered as our piece in the collective puzzle had to be rooted in these principles: sustainable for mother earth, provide holistic multipurpose healing to the people, and maintain ethical honest business practices.
And from there began the gestation of Ygeiax in 2014, not to be officially born into the world until 3 years later. We trusted in divine timing and poured our hearts into meeting our principles without exception. As a small business and do almost everything between the two of us, and with love we have put our soul focus on developing products that not only we feel good using personally but feel confident when our families use.
Aside from all this, we devote our sweet time to technologies such as astronomical telescopes, Musical instruments, Semi-precious jewels, abstract painting and exploring more of nature’s beauty. As well as working in our small vegetable garden, spending time with our furry children and spreading consciousness and compassion with those we meet.
Mother Earth has provided us all we need, working in sync with her energies and resources, we can begin to flourish as a system once more.
About the Products:
We source all our ingredients from permaculture farms across India. Often they are from underprivileged areas, and do not have the official organic certifications. Therefore, we like to say our products are Non-certified organic. That being said we personally have studied and taken courses in permaculture and exclusively work with farms adhering to the most organic practices. We studied Permaculture from Narsanna Koppulla ( Aranya agricultural Alternatives’ Permacultureindia.org )
Our Remedies are made in a facility with GMP and ISO certification, ensuring they meet quality standards. After going through a documented lab test, each product is then approved by the Ministry of AYUSH, a department of the Indian Government.
We have two products which are very popular – Holy Smoke and Happy pills.
Holy Smoke is a blend of smokable organic herbs which has no tobacco or nicotine. It is an aid to those who wish to quit cigarettes. It offers a soothing smoking experience, which betters concentration and induces relaxation.
Happy Pills is a vegan pill that contains two medicinal herbs (Intellect Tree & Valerian). These assist with dopamine & serotonin absorption, which is useful to treat anxiety and help those who struggle with sleep.
We also offer a wealth of Ayurvedic Oils- Essentials. They are 100% Pure. This is vastly different from Aromatherapy oils, which are diluted oils that have no real health benefits.
We have curated our products to be Organic, Multipurpose & Medicinal. The body, just as the earth function as a symbiotic system, this becomes ever clearer through the use of herbal remedies, they heal holistically.
So from our home to yours, we hope you find as much healing in our products as we have, may they support your highest state of wellbeing.
