Article number: P-18500
Availability: In stock (12)

Ayurveda believes that the human body is a microcosm of the universe (agree) made up of five classical elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Combinations of these elements fall into three main categories called "doshas"-Pitta, kapha, and Vata-and when these doshas fall into imbalance, the body-mind becomes disconnected from its original state of harmony with nature and the universe.

This luscious soothing, body oil is ideal for sensitive Pitta-dominant skin types, for anyone living in a warm climate, or for all doshas in the summertime. Fortified with anti-inflammatory turmeric, calming sandalwood, anxiety-reducing brahmi, and soothing plant extracts, this richly scented oil is an indulgence to help keep fiery Pittas cool, calm, collected, and in balance.

Directions: Apply all over the body to damp skin after bathing. Massage into skin until fully absorbed.

Ingredients: Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Brahmi. 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils of Geranium, Lavender, Sandalwood, and Turmeric.

There is ample scholarship on Ayurveda and the Doshas, but in to help dial in on yours:

Vata: Characterized by the mobile nature of Wind (Air). Dry, light, cold, subtle, mobile, clear. Governs movement and communication. Out of balance, causes fear, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, and exhaustion.

Pitta: Embodies the transformative nature of Fire. Hot, sharp, light, liquid, spreading. Governs digestion and transformation. Out of balance, causes fiery, reactionary emotions such as frustration, anger, jealously, and criticism.

Kapha: Reflects the binding nature of Water. Cool, slow, heavy, smooth, soft, stable. Governs cohesiveness + structure. Out of balance, causes emotions of attachment, greed, and possessiveness and can also create stubbornness, lethargy, and resistance to change.
