    Celebrating 20 Years of Serving the Ayurvedic Community

    Banyan Botanicals was born from a love of Ayurveda. Our founders, Scott and Kevin, started the company in 1996 with the desire to support the practice of Ayurveda and the expansion of its wisdom in the West. The idea for the business was simple—provide the highest quality herbs and products available and deliver them along with excellent customer service. For twenty years we have focused on making these ideals a reality for customers. It is our great honor to serve the ever-growing community of those practicing Ayurveda and we look forward to continuing our efforts in the years to come.
