Farm To Table by Jumana Natural
Founded by Jumana Electricwala, Jumana Natural was started with a vision of eating local healthy, pure, unprocessed food, while empowering Indian farmers by fair-trade.
A hardworking entrepreneur who believes that quality is better than quantity, Jumana takes personal care to source high-quality products. She enlists different farmers and introduces their various products to my customers. So in a way, when you buy from Jumana Natural, you are indirectly supporting the humble kisaan.
She began by sourcing staples like Himalayan Pink Salt, organic turmeric, saffron, and A2 cow ghee from local farms. She now has many more products like a gut-friendly sourdough bread (made with flour, water and salt), probiotic sauces, virgin coconut oil, and organic soaps made using apricot oil, rosehip oil and essential oils, and fresh flowers.
The price range starts from Rs 200 and can go up to Rs 800. Take a peek at the products on their Instagram page to know more and add to cart.
Luxury Scents by Veedaa
Veedaa, founded by Vandana Kohli, is truly handcrafted Bombay Luxury. With a passion for Botany and Fragrances since childhood, she has been researching making candles with natural wax blends and complex fragrances for the last 10 years. Using her condition to her advantage with courage, she sees asthma as a blessing in disguise. It meant that she could use only the purest and most natural fragrances and anything synthetic or artificial would cause her problems.
Veeda was made keeping this in mind. The brand of high-quality luxury candles and diffusers uses the finest ingredients and wax blends to create proprietary scents. Joined by her children Subani Seth and Dhruv Kohli, the three founders also focus on elegant packaging.
The candles and diffusers come in stylish, colourful and reusable containers that are designed in house for decorative appeal. Shop for some scintillating scents that look like pure art on Veeda’s official website. You can also follow the brand’s social media page for regular updates.
