Hi!!!! I’m, Devaki – the “Deva” in AyurDeva.
I was born & brought up in India – the home of Ayurveda which literally means “Wisdom of life”. So, the care of the mind, body & spirit in synchronisation with nature in most households in India is a way of life.
It was only natural therefore, that like all girls my age and my background, I grew up listening to my Patti (grandmother), my Mum, my Perima (mum’s elder sister) and my Amma (my mother-in-law) talk about a holistic care of oneself. I was taught the importance of keeping the mind challenged, spirituality alive and last but not the least keep the body healthy internally and externally.
When I got married, moved continents and started a family I became time poor. But that didn’t stop me. I continued most practices with my children giving them massages everyday with natural sesame oil and bathing them with milk and honey. I started to play around with local produce to stay as close to nature as possible.
Challenges of course being the practices were
So, drawing from the wisdom of ancient Indian medicine – Ayurveda and introducing an element of aesthetics, practicality and longevity the concept of AyurDeva was born. With every product having a unique formula, our intention is to provide purity, harmony, serenity, comfort, calmness, bliss, rejuvenation and revitalization. The slight alliteration denotes subtle changes to Ayurvedic recipes that change the look and feel dramatically while keeping the basic tenets of Ayurveda intact!!
No surprise then that at AyurDeva… Beauty IS skin deep!
Thank you so much for the Nilu Mum’s nourishing body massage oil. It has been so wonderful on my pregnant belly. I use it right after my shower and it leaves my skin really hydrated and soft. Its just been a week and I am already seeing signs of increased moisture and less visibility of my stretch marks. Amazing stuff!!!
AyurAvatar is a hair oil but it doesn’t have an oily feel when applied to one’s hair – this is the most important part – as I hate to have sticky oily hair – I love that the AyurAvatar is truly ace, it makes my hair silky smooth and together but not sticky and heavy like most hair oils – no smelly pillow cases !! Love the herbal smell which is so subtle – one of a kind !
Your products feel like the kiss of love, gentle and alluring with the promise of visible transformation. Thank you Dee.
I adore the the Ayurdeva line, I can’t say that enough! The ‘Ramya’ toner is absolutely perfect – exactly what I’ve spent years trying to find. I actually can’t wait to put it on every morning and night! Thank you for putting so much thought and love into these products – I can’t wait to try them all!
I Love the Shejoba cleanser. It efficiently removes sunscreen and makeup leaving my face clean and nourished. The scent and consistency are wonderful. I especially love that is does not require a wash cloth to remove. Just simply rinse. This cleansing ritual is a treat I look forward to each night.
