Plants: The Root of Ayurveda


Plants have been worshipped as deities for ages and Ayurvedic plants in Kerala have been considered a blessing. Traces of such worship can be found in Atharva Veda, where we can find hymns dedicated to various herbs. Hymns were chanted for longevity and prosperity and these were known as ‘Ayushyams’, from which advances in medicine were driven. With time, the religious inclinations in Ayurveda started diminishing and more of a scientific approach started being built. This led to study of plants as medicines more than worshipping them.

We at ‘Ayur Soma’ believe that plants are a part of our being and inculcating them in our environment is the first step toward knowing their richness. These plants not just add to the ornamental beauty but also, create an ambience that compliments the treatments offered. The plants also have their names and species tagged, from which you can learn more on them. This gives a scientific and factual approach to our treatment. Every element used, is derived from these plant types, that we get to see in the property. This keeps the treatment, transparent.

We take pride in our medicines which are internally produced. Nearly 70% to 80% is under own production while the rest are derived from forests. We continue to use the traditional methods of hand ground medicines, hence, no machines are used for their production. This keeps the medicines, earthy, and real, creating a natural treatment in a world set away from artificiality. Special care has been taken in creating, a unique and natural experience, for you at Ayur Soma, with the most ethnic architecture. You can learn more about it in the ARCHITECTURE column and know your retreat better.
