A menu of all-natural treatments inspired by the traditions of Asia. A collection of Ayurvedic treatments and products that will uplift your mind, body and spirit. Exotic fragrances fill the air. A treat for every one of your senses.

AYURVEDA means “science of life” in Sanskrit. This 5,000 year old Asian science teaches that health and well-being is achieved when everything about oneself – mind, body, spirit, senses and emotions – are in a state of perfect balance.

In Ayurveda, the universal elements of Air, Space, Water, Fire and Earth combine to create the three governing forces known as Doshas: Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth). Each of us has elements of all three forces, but one usually emerges as the dominant Dosha. The goal of Ayurveda is to bring your Dosha into balance. Balanced Doshas are exemplified through smooth, clear and radiant skin. Sundari products are founded on the principle that one’s skin is a direct reflection of one’s inner state of being. Combining Ayurvedic principles with modern day technology, Sundari products address the skin care needs of different Doshas, helping us to achieve healthy balanced skin.
