Flower of Life.
In the Quechua language, Kantu is the name of a woman and it is also a sacred flower. This beautiful, vibrantly coloured flower—the flower of life according to ancient Quechua legend—symbolises life forces, forgiveness, harmony, mutual connection and love on this earth. It is a gift to mankind from Patchamama, the Earth Mother.
This traditional Andean story speaks of the eternal battle of two kings with a tragic outcome. Their sons perpetuated in the retaliation until they themselves fell in battle. There, in the spot where a drop of their blood touched the ground, grew the Kantu flower as a manifestation of life’s energy, forgiveness, harmony, mutual forgiveness and love on this earth.
The spirit of joy,
Kantu respects and cultivates these values with its products and brings to your yoga practise joy, beauty and independent spirit.
We offer nature’s most noblest gifts to you. All our ingredients are carefully handpicked and sourced from indigenous regions around the world to ensure the finest quality. In Kantu, every detail has a bearing on creating a harmonious product that has substance and a spirit of its own.
Our roots in homeopathy have taught us to value nature’s great bounty, and everything that Mother Earth can provide for us. Essential oils hold within them the pure lifeblood of the plant; it is a gift that opens up another dimension for us to enjoy.
Have you ever had the feeling, when you arrive in a special place, hear beautiful music, or detect a sweet fragrance, that transports you to a distant memory? In that moment, your heart opens up and sings…
This intention is what we bring to our products.
Kantu started as a gift to my beloved yoga teacher, as a personalised yoga mist. Requests from her students were coming in as to where they could also get some. In one deeply meditative savasana, on a yoga retreat in sweltering hot Egypt, this question transformed itself into an idea: the possibility to create a private, fragrant space on one’s mat. This gave life — after a long journey of study, experimentation and perfectioning — to Kantu products. All the bits and pieces connected there; the brand name Kantu was inspired by a personal story of women’s strength, love and spiritual power. I am very happy that I can now share this offering of wonderful Yoga Mist with everyone, and bring to you, as well, more joy to your yoga practice.
