After 6 years, Vedic Botanicals is becoming Impact Botanicals.
I had chosen the name “Vedic” with much love and care. I chose it to honor the tradition of herbal medicine in which I’m trained and the spirit with which the products are formulated. In business class we were taught to pick a company name that speaks to your products and highlights their uniqueness. After 4 years of being in business, I realized that was very dated advice.
It’s far better to have a name that speaks to your brand and your mission.
I was also realizing that “Vedic” had its limitations. It wasn’t a word people readily understood and it was often mispronounced. I was also receiving feedback that using a name so closely tied with an ethnic tradition was not as honoring as intended- something I took very seriously.
Thus, we are becoming Impact Botanicals.
If you know my story then you know I became an entrepreneur because I saw business as a force for systemic change in society; I decided to build a system that could effectively tackle systemic problems. From the earliest days of my childhood I wanted nothing more than to leave this world better than I found it, and as I stepped into adulthood, business became the means to my end. Leveraging my skill as a formulator and an herbalist is the vehicle, but a healthier society is the destination.
I have always dreamt of and sought one thing with this life of mine: Impact. That the world I weave with the breath I breathe lifts the souls I am blessed to touch. Impact is what we aspire to create. Botanical body care is how we do it.
