Today we're bringing India to the tropics! Thousands of years before modern medicine, doctors in India developed a mind-body health system known as Ayurveda. This word translates to ‘the science of life’ and is still, to this day, a sophisticated practice designed to help individuals maintain a vibrant and healthy life by maximizing their full potential.
We have borrowed some of the wisdom and knowledge from this complex holistic practice to make recommendations in our skincare collection. There are five elements found in all living things – space, air, fire, water, and earth. These are the building blocks of life that form three unique doshas to differentiate our individual qualities and strengths. These five elements uniquely combine within each of us to create a distinct blueprint that Ayurveda refers to as a 'doshas'. You will most likely find yourself fitting nicely into one of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. For more information and to learn what dosha you are, take this online quiz created by the Chopra Center.
Learning about your dosha is key to understanding yourself and creating an optimal lifestyle that will benefit your mind, body, and spirit. It will provide lifestyle clues for what you should eat, what type of exercise is most beneficial for your body, how to deal with stress, etc. The more you know about what causes certain reactions or tendencies in your life, the easier it will be to create balance. Today we’re talking about balancing the skin and finding the right products to help you reach a radiant aloha glow!
Have fun creating Aloha Alchemy rituals that are unique to your dosha!
