Ayurveda is a true passion of mine. As well as being an Ayurvedic practitioner I am also a certified yoga teacher. The more I learn about Ayurveda the simpler and more logical everything seems.
Ayurveda is a truly holistic mind-body health system that treats YOU, the individual, not just your symptoms. Through tools such as meditation, nutrition, aromatherapy, pranayama, yoga, you can find the unique balance that will sustain and fulfill you. Living an authentic life as a human being means being truly connecting to yourself, to your true nature. Ayurveda always brings us back to this simple truth.
Why I created the Ayurvedic Perfumes
Each perfume is unique in its qualities & scent and will work to target specific needs. One of the fundamental principles of Ayurveda is the theory on the doshas. According to Ayurveda, doshas correspond to different energies or constitutions of living beings that govern specific functions in the body and the mind. Their names are VATA, PITTA and KAPHA. Each one has unique qualities (gunas). All living beings have all three doshas but in varying degrees. We are born with a natural and unique balance of the doshas but life, seasonal changes, emotional upset, anxiety etc. can all lead to an imbalanced state of the doshas. This is the main reason why I created the perfumes: to bring balance to our bodies and mind through natural and pure ingredients.
