Herbs, Healing, and Harmony: 

An Ayurvedic Celebration of World Environment Day 

Imagine a world where ancient wisdom meets modern sustainability, where natural remedies and holistic practices guide us towards a healthier planet. This vision comes to life on World Environment Day, especially when we explore the rich tradition of Indian Ayurveda. Rooted in a deep respect for nature and its resources, Ayurveda offers timeless insights into living harmoniously with our environment. This year, let’s delve into how this ancient practice not only enhances our well-being but also promotes ecological balance and sustainability. 

Cushioned in the corners of Indian culture are the multitude of praxes that the global world has now become privy to. Our use of natural resources in every diverse way possible is what makes us one of the leading nations in medicine and food. Yet, when it isn’t our daadis and naanis braiding our hair with natural oil, it is books providing us with the information we need. And Roli Books, in turn, is here to provide you with those books! 

This World Environment Day, we bring to you four books to add to your TBR list.

1. Plants: Why You Can’t Live Without Them

With B. C. Wolverton and Kozaburo Takenaka’s combined expertise, “Plants: Why You Can’t Live Without Them” informs us about the different ways we can incorporate more serenity in our chaotic lifestyles – plants. It may seem simple, but the healing power of medicinal plants, as analysed by the duo, is never to be underestimated.

2. Home Doctor: Natural Healing with Herbs, Condiments and Spices

Dr. P.S. Phadke can vouch for the aforementioned, as she has blessed us with over 200 simple and time-tested remedies for every conceivable ailment under the sun. If you are clumsy and often find yourself in sticky-tricky situations, then “Home Doctor: Natural Healing with Herbs, Condiments and Spices” is the book for you. 

3. Herbal Sutra: Indian Wisdom & Wellness Through 100 Herbs

Sharing her knowledge and wisdom with the world through her book “Herbal Sutra: Indian Wisdom & Wellness Through 100 Herbs”, Madhulika Banerjee brings to you a stunningly illustrated compendium of 100 of India’s most illustrious herbs, with their versatile uses and remarkable benefits. 

4. The Ayurvedic Wellness Cookbook: Recipes for Balance & Rejuvenation

And, last but not least, Gita Ramesh provides you with incredibly healthy and delicious recipes that have the magical power to heal. The Ayurveda Wellness Cookbook: Recipes for Balance & Rejuvenation” is the perfect addition to your kitchen countertop!

As we celebrate World Environment Day this 5th of June, let’s take this opportunity to reconnect with the Earth and honour the timeless traditions that have nurtured us for centuries. Together, we can create a sustainable future that respects and preserves the natural world!
