Nearly 20 percent of all herbs are now considered endangered—this is around 10,000 species that are threatened and/or depleted completely. LifeSpa has proudly partnered with the Dunagiri Foundation to support the protection, preservation and traditional cultivation of the many endangered Ayurvedic herbs today.
Our first restoration herb of focus is Ayurveda’s most potent liver, lymph and spleen herb, Kutki (Picrorhiza kurroa). Kutki will be the first to join our new line of herbs, RARE: Reviving Ayurveda’s Rare Ecology.
Proceeds from the RARE line go towards supporting the farmers and villages who will be sustainably-cultivating this precious herb, so this a very important mission!
Don’t miss this podcast with Dunagiri founder, master herbalist and my dear friend, Prashanti de Jager, as we explore and put into action real solutions for saving disappearing Ayurvedic herbs.
