NATURE. NURTURE. NOURISH.
Ayurveda, also known as the oldest healing science, translates to “the science of life”. As ancient as over 5000 years, Ayurveda originated from the Indian Subcontinent. It emphasizes good health and prevention and treatment of illness through lifestyle practices (such as massage, meditation, yoga, and dietary changes) and the use of herbal remedies.
Ayurvedic medicine is holistic, which means viewing the body and mind as a whole. Ayurveda not only treats a person's physical complaints but also changes lifestyle practices to help maintain or improve health.
Ayurveda believes that nature is the core giver, humans and nature are seen as one. Nature holds the power to enhance or uplift the quality of life. To lead a healthy life, it acknowledges the balance of mind, body and nature, where the solution to maintain that balance is gifted by nature itself.
Ayurveda is omnipresent, having understood the human anatomy and its co-relation with nature, it is universal just like a tree with its roots in the East but branches spreading across the globe, for the whole of mankind to reap the benefits. What makes Ayurveda unique, is it’s approach towards physical ailments, the foundation comprising of in-depth understanding of the human body and focusing more on addressing the cause rather than subsiding the effect.
According to Ayurveda, the five elements of nature (space, air, fire, water, earth) combine in the body as three components (doshas) known as Vatta, Pitta, and Kapha. These doshas relate closely to the basic elements of nature and to specific functions of the body. A balance of these doshas is thought to be required for optimal health.
YOGA is the sister science of Ayurveda, the Yogic way of living stresses on beauty and wellness generating inside out. If your body is healthy inside and your mind is at peace and comfort, not just your skin and hair but your overall beauty will be majestic. YOGA recommends a routine for self-care which comprises of physical health, mental well being and spiritual upliftment. Ayurveda, it’s complementary science believes that we humans are a part of nature and thus nature has elements that can be used to maintain beauty and wellness.
Like food is the fuel which one intakes and has a major role to play in physical well-being, herbs and spices have been known to enhance the beauty of skin and hair. Selection of specific herbs and their proportions are then formulated into oils, each formulation empowering the potion with different functional benefits. All this, devoid of any kind of chemical, preservative or toxins. Consider it as an encyclopedia of natural products for targeted functional benefits for skin, hair and other areas of beauty and wellness.
You must be thinking, why Ayurveda? and why not just Natural?- While using natural products is great as they won’t have any harmful effects caused due to chemicals, Ayurveda goes one step further by knowing how to exactly use those natural ingredients and in what exact proportion and manner. To explain you with a simple example: to make a great dish, you need the right ingredients, but you also need the right recipe. That’s the exact difference between natural and Ayurveda.
Ayurveda in other words, is the recipe to great skin and hair!
