    How would you start such a business?

    1. For its supervision so that if you do anything wrong, you can be stopped. 
    2. And secondly, a proper business structure would give you a way to move forward in your business. 

    So, yes, you would NEED TO START A COMPANY. When you are registering your company, remember to choose a simple business entity and mention that you are starting an online ayurvedic medicine selling business.
