Ceres Organics like to keep things clean and simple. That’s why their organic ashwagandha powder is just that! Grown by ‘working with nature’, using no chemical pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilisers. Also known as ‘Indian Ginseng’, this potent herb is ground from the root of the perennial Withania Somnifera plant. It was prized by the ancients for uses extending beyond food, and is a mainstay of Ayurveda. In fact, in Sanskrit it means “the smell of a horse,” hinting it has the ability to impart energy and strength.Today ashwagandha is reaching new levels of awareness and respect. Totally google-worthy!
Traditionally taken with honey and hot milk, it’s great mixed into a comforting tea or tonic. A little goes a long way – Just add ¼ – 1 teaspoon of this powered goodness to 1 cup of liquid.
Ceres was founded in 1982, when a biodynamic and organic fresh produce stand run by Juliet Lamont premiered at the Michael Park School fair in Auckland. As a mother, Juliet wanted to feed her two boys organic food, but it wasn't readily available in stores at the time. So she took the initiative to find others wanting organic food and called on organic farmers she knew to supply what they produced. The stall was so successful that Juliet began a weekly organic co-op out of her garage in Mt. Wellington. A teacher at heart, Juliet returned to her first love in 1990, handing Ceres over to Noel and Rodnie as directors. Ceres Organics became the first EcoSocial certified company in New Zealand, a certification that recognises an ethical and socially responsible sourcing philosophy based in the company's operations. EcoSocial is a fair trade certification based on organic principles and social justice headquartered in Brazil alongside the Brazilian biodynamic movement The Ceres Organics journey onwards continues with a 120 co-worker team, a strong guiding philosophy and new developments on the horizon.
