16 Aug Cooling Summer Oils & Herbs
Nature’s Gifts For Summer Cooling & Refreshing
Coconut Oil has been called “the healthiest oil on earth.” According to Ayurveda, Coconut Oil is the oil of choice for cooling the Pitta fire during the hot summer months and restoring balance to the Pitta dosha. Applied topically it will help skin retain a balanced level of moisture. Its natural SPF properties offer some protection from the sun’s rays or it will help heal sun damaged or dry skin. For self massage, Coconut Oil provides full body and face moisturizing, and also soothes inflamed muscles and joints. Place Coconut Oil front and center in your kitchen, too!
Rose Oil is soothing for Pitta and is the perfect oil for delicate, sensitive skin. It helps sedate inflammation, restores dehydrated skin and spurs the healing process for sun damaged skin. Its antiseptic properties make it a fragrant way to treat wounds. Applied topically or used in massage, it helps relieve muscle spasms and promote circulation. Rose Oil is also a natural aphrodisiac known for opening the heart and supporting loving energy.
TARA Rose Essential Oil, diluted in Organic Jojoba Oil, can be used as a facial oil and as a natural perfume – smell like a rose all summer long!
This miracle plant is called “kumari” or “virgin” in Ayurveda because it was said that its rejuvenating and restorative qualities would turn an old woman into a virgin! It cools inflammation and promotes healing of injured tissue as well as a variety of skin ailments, including: bites from pesky summer insects, skin irritations caused by poison ivy or oak brought home from hiking trails and mild sunburn. It helps restore pH balance to a digestive tract that’s been aggravated by excess Pitta, promotes cardiovascular health and boosts the immune system.
