WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential Oils are super concentrated extracts that contain the plant’s essence, flavor and scent. These oils are extracted using different methods from all the parts of the plant like flowers, leaves, fruits, bark and so on. Essential Oils contain high concentrated levels of active ingredients. Imagine this, it takes approx. 5000 rose petals to make just 2 drops of pure rose oil!
Essentials oils have been historically used for aromatherapy to boost mood, ease stress, relieve pain, combat cold and induce better sleep.
ESSENTIAL OILS AND SKINCARE
Using essential oils on the face can help in balancing the natural oil production of our skin. Active ingredients in essential oils help the skin to maintain hydration and achieve a radiant, glowing look. Oils penetrate deep thus protecting the skin and delivering nutrients that help in addressing the individual’s concerns like dryness, breakout and so on.
AYURVEDA AND ESSENTIAL OILS
Ayurvedic practice teaches that individuals are a unique combination of three elements or doshas found in nature. Vata (Air+Space), Pitta (Fire+Water) and Kapha (Earth+Water) are essential properties, which combine to form one’s skin, body and mind type. The goal is to achieve a balanced lifestyle where all doshas or elements in one’s body are equal.
Balanced Doshas are exemplified through smooth, clear, beautiful and radiant skin.
Once we understand our unique dosha and the elements they are made of and the qualities that each of the dosha is related to, it is easy to pick the right essential oils for our dosha.
