ANCIENT AYURVEDA FOR THE MODERN WORLD
PAAVANI Ayurveda is an artisan line of small-batch, pure, organic health & skincare products formulated in Northern California. Handcrafted with the wisdom of Ayurveda, our products offer ancient traditions to the modern world, with the intent to reconnect people to their innate body wisdom. We stand behind the philosophy, that what is harmonious for one may not be for another. This is a concept that plays a significant role in the fundamental roots of Ayurveda. Through understanding & honoring our individual needs, we nurture the cultivation of health & beauty from within.
THE SELF-CARE RITUAL
We believe that when it comes to self-care, creating daily rituals to honor & love the mind, body & skin will cultivate optimal wellbeing. PAAVANI products are intended to connect people to becoming a part of the self-care process. From empowering people to have the option to create their ideal skincare ritual to connecting our product’s users to the plants & minerals in which they are made from, to encouraging each other to make space in our days for the necessary ritual of self-care. By creating awareness around how we take care of ourselves & how we relate to the elements of the world, we rediscover our interconnection with the natural world & its rhythmic cycle.
Named after the Sanskrit term for Purity, PAAVANI takes pride in offering pure products that are made entirely of ingredients from the earth. Selecting quality ingredients to craft our line is important to uphold ancient Ayurvedic traditions & to offer products that are nutrient-rich; containing the highest amount of healing constituents. All ingredients are selected from premium sources, holding high standards for organic, sustainable & ethical practices.
Made completely of ingredients that are good enough to eat!
The seed of PAAVANI Ayurveda was planted between Leah Klatt & Trudy Collings during their Herbalism Apprenticeship, at the California College of Ayurveda. It was then that the women discovered their common passion for developing skin & body care products that carry on the tradition of Ayurveda. They decided that they wanted to share this with the world. PAAVANI was born a few years later in 2014, when the women opened an office space in Grass Valley, CA, to offer Traditional Ayurvedic Body Therapies. It was at this time that the first products in their line were developed- the Aromatherapy Spritzers & Body Oils. The women intended to create dosha specific products that they could use in their therapies & further extend out to their community.
Co-owners, Leah & Trudy, bow to the inspiring forces of the community in which they are blessed to call home. This healing, energetic center in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is home to the sacred Yuba River, vast horizons of wild, natural beauty & creative people who influence them daily. The women give thanks to the powerful energy of this community & the support that it has offered to their creation of PAAVANI. Furthermore, the women seek inspiration & guidance through yoga & its philosophy, song, dance, shamanic journeying & travels around the world. PAAVANI would not be the thriving business it is today without the help of these awakening forces.
