Banyan was founded in 1996 by Scott Cote and Kevin Casey in Albuquerque, New Mexico.Scott began studying Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad in 1986 as a student at the Ayurvedic Institute. His passion for Ayurveda and serving Dr. Lad landed him the responsibility of setting up and running the Institute’s herbal pharmacy. There he worked side by side with Dr. Lad for 10 years mixing formulas for clients while absorbing the wisdom of his teacher.Kevin began his studies with Dr. Lad in 1993 and joined Scott in the herbal pharmacy the following year.As Ayurveda gained in popularity, Scott and Kevin increasingly received requests for higher quality Ayurvedic herbs and products. At the time there were limited options and they could see that for Ayurveda to really take hold in the United States this supply issue would need to be addressed.In 1996, the Banyan Trading Company was started out of a room in Kevin’s house with the mission of providing the highest quality Ayurvedic herbs and products to Ayurvedic practitioners.Today, Banyan Botanicals continues to grow in service to the Ayurvedic Community while maintaining our focus on high quality products, outstanding educational information and excellent customer service. Ayurveda in the West is still very much in its infancy and there are so many people that can benefit from its wisdom. We feel we are just at the beginning of our journey and have much joyful work ahead of us.
