Look, everyone has the best intentions when it comes to their health, but sometimes it can feel like a bit of a minefield. Smashing supplements religiously for a week and then shoving them in a cupboard and forgetting about them. Segmented sleep, placenta pills, excessive colonic irrigation. It feels like everyone’s always looking for the hottest new thing to make them feel amazing. When did looking after yourself get so complicated?
With all this mad anxiety to find the silver bullet to transform you into a superhuman, more and more people are throwing it back to the old school, and looking to ancient methods to feel their best. Cassie Cameron and Dylan Smith are two people who looked to Ayurvedic traditions, and felt like they were onto something. Realising that going back to basics made them feel good AF resulted in them starting One Eleven Health, making ayurvedic health products that feel anything but confusing. For Cassie, it’s all about accessibility…
“Our goal is to make ancient wisdom sexy and adoptable. Our aim is to distill all of this knowledge in really simple, practical ways.”
If you’re not 100% sure what ayurveda even is, don’t worry, everyone has to start somewhere. Ayurveda basically refers to a natural system of medicine that originated in India more than 3000 years ago. It’s derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge), meaning Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life.” It’s based on the idea that bad health comes from an imbalance or stress in a person's consciousness, and it encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind and spirit. For Cassie, it started with vedic meditation, and feeling how a LOT of people feel...
“I learnt meditation at a time when I really needed it. I was stressed and anxious and a mess of a woman. Maybe on the outside I didn’t look like a mess but I was on the inside.” Sounds kiiiiind of familiar, amiright?
Drawing on the oldest healthcare values in the world, Cassie and Dylan are changing the game, one adaptogenic elixir at a time. For them, it’s all about less is more…
“There’s no one size fits all, it’s about what’s best for you. Everything about this is about listening to yourself, but too many people forget that, and just go looking for that magic pill.”
That’s where their inaugural product Bliss comes in. If you’ve been looking for an adaptogenic, uplifting, sustainable herbal blend that busts stress, helps you sleep and makes you feel beautiful from the inside out, then Bliss might just be your new best friend. Why’s it called Bliss I hear you ask? Because it’s the perfect blend of potent herbs that regulate your nervous system, creating a literal feeling of bliss in your brain. Oh, and it couldn’t be easier to take. It not only has multiple health benefits all in one delicious product, but their beautiful gold packaging makes it a literal joy to use. If you’re all about that herbal high, this one’s for you.
It isn’t just good for you, it’s respectful and sustainable for the planet, and Dylan and Cassie went to unbelievable lengths to ensure that it includes the best of the best. “The quality of the herbs is so important to us, how it’s sourced in line with the seasons, in line with the moon. They really are the most incredible and potent herbs. Our packaging has been designed to reflect what’s inside, and we just love beautiful things that mirror nature. Health should be a pleasure, a ritual, a luxury. It’s the way our bodies should be, and we all deserve the best”
