Oiling the skin every day after a bath or shower with sesame oil or one of our Herbal-Infused Body Oils will help keep the immune system strong and vital. By creating a calm environment, quieting the mind and bringing loving awareness through our hands, you also encourage your body to produce more Oxytocin, a loving, giving, feel-good hormone which helps balance the immune system as well as other hormones.
“Protecting the skin in a natural way may turn out to be one of the most important health and longevity factors discovered to date,” says Dr. John Douillard, an Ayurvedic physician who has been teaching and writing about Ayurveda for over 25 years. He is the founder of Life Spa, a natural health and Ayurvedic clinic in Boulder, Colorado.
