WHY US?

Ahimsa - UH-HIM-SA

Ahimsa Herbals is a handcrafted, pure, natural and non-toxic skincare line made out of Northern Colorado. Every product is handcrafted with the intention to heal and create happiness. We have infused the ancient traditions of Ayurveda with folk medicine to bring you the very finest, pure and healing products.

Ahimsa translates in sanksrit as non-violence. This not only means to other living creatures but it also means kindness and compassion to oneself. Through nurturing, practice and wisdom we can find harmony through the right lifestyle choices, practices, and proper self-care.

By helping you tend to yourselves, we hope to ignite that fire for self-love, self-compassion and self-worth you so deserve. 

Feeling 'whole' takes work. Our body, mind and spirit need regular love, care and upkeep to keep us feeling healthy and strong. We are here to support you by offering wisdom on the ancient healing science of Ayurveda, it's sister science, Yoga and a million other things to help bring you health, happiness and harmony.

Through Ayurvedic Education, Ayurvedic Therapies, Ayurvedic Skincare and yoga, we hope to inspire you to take charge of your own health, whilst helping you on your way.

Non-toxic, clean beauty

With a deep respect for our bodies and what goes on and into it, all our products are made with natural, pure, non-toxic ingredients without parabens, preservatives, colors or parfums. The only preservatives we use, if any, are all purely natural and our fragrances are made from essential oils or infused oils.

Sustainability

Our deep connection, bond and reverence to Mother Earth can not be ignored. We can not destroy one without destroying the other. We can not care for one without caring for the other. For we are all one.

All our ingredients are ethically and sustainably sourced, following fair trade practices ensuring that nothing was harmed in its process.

Packaging

We do our best to use as minimal packaging as possible from glass bottles, to metal caps and recycled paper. We do however have to use some plastics which can be found in the pumps or sprays, however these are recyclable and the bottles can be washed and reused for other purposes. (think homemade cleaners, bug sprays or natural insecticides).

All of our shipments are sent using recycled kraft paper as packing materials, bio-degradable packing tape and recyclable boxes. Many of our labels are made from recycled paper and we sometimes will even reuse packing paper if it's a good condition.

We wish we could do more to reduce this waste and we are constantly on the lookout for new packaging innovations.
