Armaiti is the name of the old Iranian goddess of the earth, taking care of all life on it. Supplying all their needs, with the experience, knowledge and wisdom of thousands of years, but always open to new opportunities to make the earth a better place.

Plants and animals were used to provide food, clothing, medicines, heat etc. In today’s modern society, although lots of new technologies were introduced to supply people’s needs otherwise, plants and animals still play an important role in satisfying these needs.
