The Nattika Ayurveda Beach Resort

Let us take a serene stroll through the Ayurveda herbal garden at Nattika, a journey into the world of ancient wisdom and natural healing. As one steps into our herbal garden, a place where each plant is selected for its medicinal properties and aligned with Ayurveda principles, it whispers tales of holistic wellness and harmony with nature.

As the saying “Jagathyevam anoushadam”, there is no plant in the universe that exists without medicinal properties, our herbal garden serves as a miniature representation showcasing only a fraction of the extensive areas of herbal plants available to us for healing purposes. While strolling along the pathways, you will come across plants such as Tulsi, Aloe vera, Nutmeg, Vetiver, Satavari, Guduchi, Sankhapushpi,Bringaraj, Arjuna, Curcuma, Ginger, Moringa and more, each beckoning you to discover their remarkable health benefits. Nature also teaches us about the properties of specific plants through their unique shapes. For example, the bone shaped structure of Asthishrungala(Cissus quadrangularis), signifies its ability to strengthen bones. Similarly, the heart shaped leaves of Guduchi(Tinospora cordifolia) helps to remember its effect on cardiac health, while the brain shaped Mandukaparni(Centella asiatica) indicates its potential to improve memory and stimulate the brain.
