Ayurvedic Products for Beauty + Health

Beauty Balm* : Hydrate and Replenish with this wonderful nourishing Ayurvedic beauty balm.

Made with organic natural ingredients by Banyan Botanicals. The base of Beauty Balm is a blend of coconut and olive oil and ghee infused with rejuvenative skin herbs like shatavari, ashwagandha and licorice. The wonderful aromatic essence is essential oil of rose geranium, a beautiful sweet, rich and grounding aroma.

I love this balm for my moisturizing ritual after my herbal face wash. It can be used for moisturizing over worked and dry hands, dry elbows, and dry knees, and as an eye cream (uplifting the tone of the delicate skin around the eyes), lip balm or nail and cuticle cream. End the day with Beauty Balm by massaging your feet and heels, which will soothe the often dry and cracked skin. Pregnant women can enjoy the ritual of nourishing the skin that is enveloping their growing child with a Beauty Balm belly rub. Play with it and discover even more uses for this amazing and nourishing balm!  

Nasya (Herbal Infused Nose Drops)* : Nasya Oil for clear breathing, soothes and protects the nasal passage while nourishing the tissues.

The nose is the direct route to the brain and also the doorway to consciousness. It is the entrance for prana, the life force, which comes into the body through the breath. Healthy uncongested breathing is important to ensure proper flow of prana throughout the head and body. When an excess of bodily fluids accumulates in the sinus, throat, nose, or head areas, it is best eliminated through the nose.

Daily nasal lubrication helps to release tension in the head and relieve accumulated stress. Balancing for vata, pitta, and kapha.

Beauty & Essential Oils

Floracopeia : My most favorite essential company! They provide such a high quality of essential oils and other botanical aromatic treasures, and support ecologically sustainable agricultural and agro-forestry projects.

Veriditas Botanicals : A passionate friend of mine Melissa offers exquisite bio dynamic hydrasols and essential oils.
