Ayurveda Aromatherapy Essentials!

imagesIt’s a grey day today, some see it as a chance to slow down for a minute and others see it as a depressing factor…which ever your mood choose the right essential oils for you…remember we are in vata season so we may all need a little of the vata essential oils.

I’ve taken this info from a  great article online, it is spot on!

Here is a sample of essential oils for your type…

If you are a vata type (typically susceptible to head pain, overall dryness, nervousness, trouble sleeping, being overly aware of everything around you), avoid sharp or strongly perfumed essential oils. You would benefit from warm, energizing oils such as camphor, cinnamon and cypress, combined with the stabilizing, calming oils such as sandalwood, jasmine or rose, blended in sesame oil, a carrier oil generally regarded as incomparable in its ability to penetrate the skin.

A pitta type (typically prone to heat in the body in specific body parts, feelings  of anger, acting and being overly controlling) would benefit from cooling, calming oils, flowery fragrances such as gardenia, jasmine, mint, rose, sandalwood blended in a cooling carrier like coconut oil.

A kapha type (predisposed to breathing difficulties) will benefit from the use of warm, light, stimulating oils such as sage, basil, cedar, pine, myrrh in very light carrier oils. The use of sharp, stimulating fragrances is beneficial for the kapha type.
