Calming. Cooling. Soothing.
- Cooling herbs that calm and soothe pitta
- Relaxes the tension associated with pitta
- Softens the skin while providing a buffer from the irritations of daily life
- Promotes clear, healthy skin
This aromatic oil is a cooling blend of nine organic herbs, including brahmi/gotu kola, guduchi and manjistha, in a base of sesame and sunflower oils. These herbs are traditionally used in Ayurveda to address pitta by removing excess heat while relaxing the tension associated with pitta. A daily self-massage benefits the skin, where pitta tends to accumulate, supports healthy circulation and helps move toxins out of the system.
Pitta is composed of the elements fire and water. Transformation in the body always requires pitta: digestion, metabolism, temperature maintenance, sensory perception, and comprehension. Pitta tends to be driven and ambitious and benefits from the break provided by a soothing massage, which is enhanced by the cooling and cleansing qualities of the herbs found in Pitta Massage Oil. Pitta also holds tension in the muscles and is relaxed by the therapeutic touch of a warm oil massage.
Pitta Massage Oil is a wonderful item to stock up on for the summertime, when pitta is at its highest.
