| India is a land blessed with thousands of species of plants & herbs, treasured, for their healing and therapeutic qualities. Ayurveda likens the body to nature, where there are five basic elements that compose them. These are space, air, fire, water and earth. According to Ayurveda, this is also the reason why the environment has such a great influence in our lives and wellbeing.
For centuries Ayurvedic healers have been perfecting the art and alchemy of blending and extracting these ingredients from nature in order to bring health to mankind. The process of creating these traditional oils requires knowledge, diligence and dedication to ensure the therapeutic properties of the botanical ingredients are retained and unspoilt.
Each Ayurveda oil (thailam) has a unique & specific formula that can contain the components of up to 50 different plants. As the oil molecule is extremely small it easily penetrates the skin, delivering the medicinal properties to all the cells in the body. Given our modern lifestyle, our cells can become overwhelmed & dysfunctional. Each ingredient has been carefully selected for its physiologic action in the body & to help restore the body’s natural state of health. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is the science of life ( Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge).
Each of our oils remains true to India’s ancient healers & their original recipes – they are Ancient Remedies for Modern Times. View our range of Oils of Ayurveda available for purchase online.
