The UMM Diwali Gift Guide 2021
Diwali is almost here and if you, like us, have been scrambling around for gifts then our guide below is just what you’ve been looking for. We’ve curated an edit of some of our favorite South Asian brands across skincare, wellness and food and we hope you are able to find something you love here (we also have some discount codes for you - you’re welcome ;))!
SHAZ & KIKS
Shaz & Kiks is a haircare brand founded by two sisters - Shaz and Kiku - and while every single one of their products is absolutely amazing, we especially love their BALANCING CLAY HAIR CLEANSER that comes packed with the goodness of multani mitti (an UMM favorite!), jojoba, moringa, vetiver and a host of other hair loving natural ingredients.
THE VEDIC CARTEL
The Vedic Cartel is an Ayurveda backed wellness brand founded by Sheena and Sapan Patel and while we love all their amazing single ingredient supplements (think Ashwagandha, Amla, Tulsi and so many more!), we especially love their PARTY PILL - a hangover aid that is made with all-natural ingredients such as moringa, turmeric, willow bark, milk thistle and more and helps you prevent hangovers.

AAVRANI is a New York City based Ayurveda inspired skincare brand and we love their newly launched HEALING ROSE CLAY MASK for sensitive skin, along with the rest of their stunning product range - including the Balance Restoring Serum and the Glow Activating Exfoliator.
HAVAH is a haircare brand by Shikha and Sakshi that retails some of the most exquisite Ayurvedic hair oils and we love their BRAHMI KA TEL, a power-packed concoction of Ayurvedic favorites Brahmi and Sesame that help soften, nourish and moisturize both your hair and scalp.
We hope you enjoy shopping from these brands and encourage you to support and empower South Asian owned businesses whenever + wherever you can!
