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.

berry_quinoa_recipe

“What’s for breakfast mom?”

My kids keep asking me that question and lately I’ve had the blah’s about that morning meal….nothing seems appetizing, either too sweet, too conventional, too fruity, too this too that…aiyayai!

I’ve just found this great recipe with an ancient grain that everyone is going bananas over for at least the past 2 years…here it is, a return to yummy breakfasts…hope you like it…A WARMING SPICY QUINOA + PRUNE PORRIDGE ( berries are fantastic for this time of year as well- as per the pic) perfect for this weather and for our friendly and slightly scattered Vatas ♥

Ingredients:
This recipe is gluten-free.
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 cup of coconut milk
1 cup of filtered water
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
Handful of coconut flakes
1/4 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp ghee
1 packed of organic prunes
1 orange (sliced with skin on)
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp vanilla essence
Activated nuts + dollop of natural yoghurt to serve
1/2 cup coconut flakes
Directions:
Add your prunes, cinnamon stick and sliced orange with a few drops of filtered water in a pot and place on the stove. Bring to the boil.
Cover and turn the heat down to low, and simmer gently for about 30 to 35 minutes, turning the prunes every so often and adding a little water if they look too dry.
Add coconut flakes, quinoa flakes, water, milk and spices to a medium-sized pot.
Bring the mixture to the boil and then turn down the heat to a gentle simmer stirring continually.
Add the ghee in and stir well.
Add some cooked porridge to a bowl, then add a spoon of your stewed prunes with a dollop of good quality organic natural yoghurt. Sprinkle with some crushed activated nuts.
