About Omved, Mumbai
A Holistic, Natural Lifestyle
In the words of poet Gary Snyder, “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”
Priti Mehta, an entrepreneur based in Mumbai, believes wholeheartedly in the goodness of nature and vedic science. According to her, treating a person naturally is the mantra to greater well-being and balance. The idea came to her right after the birth of her twins when she felt the need to find safer, chemical-free methods to take care of her babies. After thorough research and careful planning, she created Omved in 2009.
The brand works on the conviction that to live a healthy life, we need to be completely conscious. It is imperative to find our pure self, develop our natural potentials, and live life to the fullest. To revive ancient Vedic as well as Sanatan Dharma (eternal truths) traditions, the company offers a lovely array of handcrafted, natural products that impart healing qualities and balance.
The brand sources and manufactures these from suppliers who have high ethical as well as moral values and have environment-friendly practices. What’s more, Omved believes in the three fundamental principles – reduce, reuse, and recycle. Opting for biodegradable and recycled packaging, they use water-based inks for printing labels and stationery. None of the products is tested on animals or has their by-products as ingredients.
The enterprise takes great pride in their customer service, knowledge, and attention to detail. Apart from buying beautiful items, a client gets information and suggestions as to how to live naturally and holistically. The efforts of the venture are being recognized all over India. Health and Wellness has bestowed the company with ‘The Most Admired Retailer of 2014’ award at IRA. Their pregnancy-care products too have been felicitated by beauty and health experts.
Some of their fruits of labour include skin and hair care, mom and baby care, yoga and fitness, organic clothing, aromatherapy, health therapies, home and living, eco-friendly gifts, and herbal Holi colours. Omved ensures that each and every ingredient used in these handcrafted products is chemical-free, natural, biodegradable, and made in India. These authentic and ethical items are safe for their clients as well as for the earth. As world-famous spiritual leader, Thich Nhat Hanh points out, “We need to move beyond the idea of environment and fall back in love with Mother Earth.”
