Ayurvedic aka Ayurveda

Translation from (Sanskrit language) means roughly “Knowledge of Life”

Originated: South Asia

What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.

Ayurveda treatment starts with an internal purification process, followed by a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation. In India, Ayurveda is considered a form of medical care, equal to conventional Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathic medicine, and homeopathic medicine.  It's important to discuss any Ayurvedic internal treatments that you use with your doctor.



Allopathy vs Ayurveda


While Allopathy focuses on treating symptoms, Ayurveda chooses to uproot the ailment from its roots. The treatment plan is holistic, natural, and safe and doesn't cause any side effects to the recipient. Ayurveda emphasizes doshas or critical elements that make up the human body. According to ayurvedic physicians, a person falls ill only when these doshas or elements are out of balance. These Doshas are called Vatta, Pitta, and Kaph.

Ayurvedic oils is a type of herbal oil made by infusing a carrier oil with ayurvedic botanical extracts. A selection of ayurvedic herbs are combined with vegetable or plant oil to create a herbal oil treatment with unique benefits for your hair and skin. Please note that while this ayurvedic oil has been primarily targeted at hair concerns, many of its benefits also apply to skincare and therefore can be used on both hair and skin. There are two primary methods to infuse oil: hot infusion and cold infusion. Cold infusion herbal oils take several weeks and use the warmth of sunlight to produce a potent ayurvedic oil. I have chosen to use the cold infusion method allowing me in creating the best ingredients needed for my collection.
