“She has the Spirit of the Sun,
the Moods of the Moon,
the Will of the Wind.”
My love for Banyan continues…
Right before I left for India to study yoga and Ayurveda, I was asked to be a Banyan Affiliate with one of my FAVORITE companies, Banyan Botanicals!
Banyan Botanicals has dedicated 20 years to serving the yoga and Ayurveda wellness community! Banyan provides herbs, spices, tinctures, oils and other Ayurveda products that are sustainably sourced, USDA organic certified, fair traded and environmentally friendly.
After my Ayurveda training ended, I had an ENTIRELY NEW OUTLOOK on the healing power of herbs, spices and food! I learned how to use them to their maximum benefit and how to use them through the various seasons.

Most of the herbs and spices I’d never heard of before since some of them are not grown or offered in the U.S., which is one of the reasons I wanted to go to southern India and visit the state of Kerala. Kerala is an area known for its Ayurvedic remedies and treatments. I wanted to learn more about the herbs and plants that are grown in that region and how they’re used in Ayurveda products.
Everyday as I walked to my Ayurveda treatments, there were herbs growing along the path. I had read about some of these herbs for years, so seeing them in person was surreal.
During the two year Living Ayurveda Consultant training, my teacher Maria Garre, founder of the New Mexico School of Yoga, taught us how to integrate Banyan’s products into our trainings, so we could learn first hand through our own Ayurveda practice how to use herbs, spices and oils to access their natural healing qualities. It was so helpful because I was able to take the information I was learning about my Ayurveda constitution (Prakruti) and Doshas.
The last few years, I used Banyan’s products with my personal Ayurvedic practice to deepen my understanding of the information through my own experience. I wasn’t just reading books about these healing herbs and spices, but I was using them when I was cooking food, making teas, doing my daily self-massage and when I was working with my yoga and Ayurveda clients.
Banyan’s products are reasonably priced and so well made. They aren’t harsh or invasive, but gentle concoctions, which feels like you’re being loved and nurtured from the inside out.
I eventually introduced Banyan products to my mom, dad, business partner (for those of you who know Keme, I test out everything on her first after I practice it myself), my yoga students and Ayurveda clients. Everyone ALWAYS has something positive to say about Banyan products, even when some people were apprehensive about trying something new.
It’s ok, I know Ayurveda can sometimes seem a little strange in the beginning, but that’s why I’m here to dispel information, teach people about the wonders of Ayurveda and offer practical tools that people can access in the modern world.
Banyan is one of my favorite companies out there! I am SO proud to be an affiliate because their products have been so beneficial to me during my journey in healthy living. Thank you Banyan for supporting me in my personal and professional practice in Ayurveda and yoga.
