History of Savitur

So.. she began an oil company on a passion.

Somah Devi Ma, was introduced to Ayurveda in 2011 and Yoga in 1997. Her passion for blending science and spirituality were ignited in 2013!

After growing up in Rochester, Minnesota; home of the Mayo Clinic and feeling her society was becoming too dependant on ‘the magic pill,’ she studied the golden thread behind the educators and the products they used.

India Journey

Journey to India

Somah was introduced to the power of what Essential oils do, in Ayurveda. This was Somah’s passion for Sports Science and it was natural healing that lead her to the wisdom of Ayurveda. Ayurveda means “the science of life”.  

During ‘Ayurvedic School’ she was invited to different botanical factory’s and private Essential oil distillations.  She was allowed to bring all oils ‘from home’ to compare and have tested by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectometry and learn about the different locations, soils, procedures and end products.

Somah found an incredible difference in oils she accessed over seas. These sources and families are committed to the global pharmacology, not economically driven.  And it could be smelled and seen immediately. Of course the test scores showed very revealing information about ‘the other’ common brand companies she was testing.

Motorcycle tour in India

On a motorcycle journey with her “teacher/guru” Anand Mehrotra, in the Himalayans in 2014, she expressed the desire to name this company that had begun evolving in 2012. After explaining that her focus was the “Truth” about oils and their “Divine” influence, her teacher suggested “Savitur”, another name for ‘God, Divine flow information, or Enlightenment’. In the “Gayatri Mantra” the phrase, Tat Savitur Varenyum, means the "Truth of God’s Wisdom". The "light of the sun is the energy of Savitur".  What a PERFECT name and it came on the night of her birthday!

Savitur supports this and is part of a world-wide small farms co-op that supports this passion where, at any time, you can visit where YOUR oil grows.  Being present at distillation is celebrated.
