- Warming herbs that nourish and ground vata

- Promotes calmness and strength
This rejuvenating Ayurvedic oil is a synergistic blend of nine herbs, including ashwagandha, bala, and passionflower. The certified organic herbs nourish and ground vata, supporting vitality and vigor. Vata Massage Oil is made from a base of organic sesame and olive oils. These oils warm and lubricate the delicate vata system. Ayurveda highly recommends a daily self-massage to restore calm and provide strength.
Vata dosha is composed of the elements air and space. Any motion in the body requires vata: swallowing, breathing, nerve impulses, muscle movements, thinking, bowel movements, urination, and menstruation. Vata benefits particularly from grounding and nourishing support, provided both by the oil itself and the warming herbs. Vata also benefits from regularity, especially a daily self massage with warm oil. The gentle pressure and firmness of massage grounds vata and brings stability.
Vata Massage Oil is great to stock up on, especially in the fall and early winter, when vata is at its highest.
