“I created Ayurveda Apothecary out of a deep reverence for Dhanvantari*, the Vedic tradition, my teachers, and all the teachers that came before them. Studying Ayurveda profoundly changed my perspective on life and well being; it allowed me to connect to my inner healer and trust in this intuitive guidance. These formulations support the guidance of the healer we all have within. It is my hope that these products inspire others to embrace their natural state of well being -- and find the space and stillness to listen to its calling.” -Tamara, Founder of Made by Yoke

The 5,000-year-old science of Ayurveda believes that wellness comes from the balanced integration of the mind, body, spirit, and environment. Together, these four aspects create a holistic sense of well-being. To realize our highest potential Ayurveda teaches us to expand our focus to consider the whole.
Ayurveda Apothecary distills this traditional science of wellness into products that support the body beyond the surface layer of the skin. Our products are synthesized to nourish the system as a whole and designed to create the space to connect to the beauty that resides within.
