Sanskrit: तैल: divine herbal preparations

MEET OUR FOUNDER

From an old agricultural family since the 1600’s in Kerala, India, I was instinctively drawn to the healing power of nature. My father, a botanist, fostered this ever-growing hunger to discover each botanical rooted in the medicinal science of Ayurveda. He would uncover the secret of each leaf, each tree, and each flower on our afternoon walks through the lush tropics of Kerala. These were magical moments for me.

In my early 30’s I experienced skin sensitivities leading to eczema, hives and cystic acne due to the synthetic ingredients in my skincare. It was Ayurveda that healed me. I experienced first-hand that potent plant actives can advance skin’s innate capacity to heal. Keeping sensitive and reactive skin in mind, I’ve personally designed each product with restorative Ayurvedic botanicals to help guide skin into its own unique balance.

Firmly rooted in the principles of Ayurveda, I have selected the purest essence of exotic spices, enchanting blooms, and precious woods. Straight from the farm to our hands we craft plant medicine for the skin in our New York Apothecary-Lab to bring you a collection that is time-tested and effective to honor your beauty.  

THE DISCOVERY OF TAÏLA

THE POWER OF
HEALING BOTANICALS

My childhood memories are of my mother grinding sandalwood on a stone as she carefully mixed turmeric and honey to create a purifying face mask. This was my first glimpse into Ayurveda. Nostalgia pervades me as I remember her massaging herbal shampoos made with fresh ground hibiscus and aloe that would leave my hair strong and silky. At a young age I recognized that potent whole plants yield impactful results.

MY SEARCH
FOR HEALTHY SKIN

I’ve experienced first- hand the harm that beauty products filled with artificial chemicals can cause. Facing a myriad of skin troubles, I was desperate to heal my complexion. This led me to leave my career on Wall Street to pursue what I had grown up with — rediscovering the healing wonders of Ayurveda. My heritage united with passion led me to the creation of taïla.
