Element was conceived and operated in Chicago since 2015. In 2017, we relocated to Minneapolis, MN. We do not have a brick-and-mortar retail shop, but we do supply several retailers with certain products on a regular basis.
Founded in 2015, Element Ayurvedic Apothecary aims to expand awareness of ayurveda by handcrafting products which empower individuals on their path to health & self-understanding. These uniquely handcrafted products offer a way to mindfully indulge your senses with body mists and limited edition seasonal products.
Zach Zube is a NAMA-certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor and an experienced Certified Yoga Instructor with over 500 hours of training. His inspiration for each product comes from the healing wisdom of ayurveda, the intuitive nature of sensory enjoyment, and the aim of living a life of meaning.
We are committed to formulating products from all-natural, whole ingredients. We work with trusted suppliers who value the quality of the ingredients they offer.
When using essential oils, we stick to pure essential oils and CO2 extracts. We do not use absolutes, which are extracted with harsh chemical solvents, or synthetic fragrances which are the cause of many headaches and sensitivities. You also won't find any petrochemicals or formaldehyde-releasing preservatives in our products.
We source as much organic, wild-harvest, non-GMO, non-sprayed, and ethically harvested ingredients as possible and logically available.
