What is Health?
The age-old Indian life science of Ayurveda refers to health as ‘Swasthya’, or ‘Swastha’ which essentially means to be rooted in self.
स्व + आस्थ्य = स्वयं में स्थापित होना
Ayurveda emphasises the delicate body-mind-spirit complex as the understanding of life, and health to be a balance amongst them. It delineates fundamental ways to practice holistic care, lifestyle, prevention, diagnosis, treatment of diseases and more.
Ayurveda serves as a guiding light for everyone to lead a healthy life even through this ever-changing modern era. It carries the wisdom to help each individual unlock his or her true creative potential.

The journey to the name, 'Butterfly Ayurveda'
Butterfly Ayurveda was founded by Ms. Akshi Khandelwal in 2014. Being an Indian classical dancer and a martial artist, Akshi was fascinated by Indian culture's rich history, deep-rooted concepts, and strong foundations. Her practices further inspired her to explore the holistic approach of Ayurveda towards leading a healthy life. She read books on Ayurveda and naturopathy and discovered its numerous benefits by incorporating Ayurvedic techniques, treatments, and methods into her daily lifestyle to improve her health.
At the cusp of her journey, Akshi realized that people in India and around the world lacked indepth knowledge and awareness about Ayurveda. She also discovered that this ancient science of healing had not received the recognition it truly deserved. Instead, it was overshadowed by western concepts of nutrition and understanding of health. She was determined to bring about a change to such a setting.
Taking inspiration from a butterfly’s journey of life that goes through several stages of evolution before it actually turns into a butterfly, Akshi named the company Butterfly Ayurveda. ‘Butterfly’ here signifies the courage to be capable of change, and transform into the most beautiful or healthy self. 'Change' is the only constant, and evolution is a must for sustainable growth and progress for all. The name Butterfly Ayurveda symbolizes a transformational journey of Ayurveda in this modern world.
At Butterfly Ayurveda, we develop a holistic range of wellness products that can be integrated into the modern-day lifestyle and routines. We believe in an ever-changing process of life and work that helps us to realize our true potential.
