Eco Botanica was born out of a dream to provide high end, high vibration organic skincare products infused with consciousness and the magic of Ayurvedic science.  

Key to the process is sourcing the highest quality ingredients in the world, and formulating with skill and intuition to create potent products.  This is the reason why our products consistently receive the feedback that they really work and are some of the best in the industry.  Our customers come back again and again.

Eco Botanica was co-founded by Guru Darshan K. Wilson and Peter G. Wilson in the early 2000s while living in an earthship in Taos, New Mexico. Peter was growing and cultivating food in the earthship at 7900 feet elevation where winter temperatures go well below zero. 

The inspiration for the products we offer comes from the ancient science of Ayurveda. Ayurveda teaches that the skin reflects all seven layers of body tissues: plasma or lymph, blood cells, muscles, fat, bone, marrow and the nervous system, and reproductive tissue.  How you eat, drink, rest, and play affects your skin, mind and mood.  We hope our products will provide inspiration if you wish to explore your knowledge of self-healing through holistic means. Finding out your basic Ayurveda body type with its consequent needs is one of the most helpful things you can do to take better care of yourself.
