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 inter-connectedness 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.
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.
We personally have studied and taken courses in permaculture and exclusively work with farms adhering to the most organic practices.

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.
