KAPHA  governs the structure and stability of the body. It's primary function is to protect the body and mind by overseeing the formation, growth, and lubrication of the joints, muscles, bones, fat, marrow, nutritive fluids, and reproductive tissues
If KAPHA is your primary dosha, groundedness and contentment are basic to your nature; you will tend to be calm, steady, and slow to anger.

As long as KAPHA is kept in balance, you will be stable, compassionate, and loyal.

KAPHA  governs the structure and stability of the body. It's primary function is to protect the body and mind by overseeing the formation, growth, and lubrication of the joints, muscles, bones, fat, marrow, nutritive fluids, and reproductive tissues
If KAPHA is your primary dosha, groundedness and contentment are basic to your nature; you will tend to be calm, steady, and slow to anger.

As long as KAPHA is kept in balance, you will be stable, compassionate, and loyal.

This massage blend is vivifying, warming and detoxifying. The oils and herbs used bring a focused action and stimulation to sites of accumulation or stagnation in the slower moving energies of the fluid and connective systems.

Uses: Pre-Bath Massage Oil, Swedana Therapy, Shirodhara
 

WHAT'S THE BEST TIME FOR MASSAGE?

Ayurvedic massage is traditionally performed in the morning, before bath or shower, to facilitate the release of toxins that may have accumulated during the previous night.

However, at the end of the day a mini massage before shower and bed or simply massaging the soles of the feet with Vata oil or Vata Balm will help with insomnia and promote restful sleep.

DIRECTIONS
Start by warming oil in a basin of hot water.

  • Use the open part of your hand, rather than your finger tips, to massage your entire body. 
    In general, use circular motions over rounded areas (joints, head) and straight strokes over straight areas
    (neck, long bones).
    Apply moderate pressure over most of your body and light pressure over your abdomen and heart.
  • Start with your head.
    Pour a small amount of oil on your hands and vigorously massage it into your scalp.
    Use the flat part of your hands, make circular strokes to cover your whole head.
    Spend more time massaging your head than other parts of the body.
  • Move to your face and outer ears, remembering to apply a small amount of oil as you move from one part of your body to the next. Massage this area gently.
  • Massage the front and back of your neck, and the upper part of your spine.
    At this point you may want to cover the rest of your body with a thin layer of oil
    to give maximum time for the oil to soak in.
  • Vigorously massage your arms, using circular motion on your shoulders and elbows and long, back-and-forth strokes on your upper arms and forearms.
  • Now massage your chest and abdomen.
    Use a very gentle, circular motion over your heart and abdomen.
    You can start in the lower right part of your abdomen and move clockwise toward the left lower part,
    to gently massage your intestines.
  • Massage your back and spine the best you can.
  • Massage your legs vigorously, using circular motions over your hips, knees and ankles.
    Use long straight over your thighs and calves.
  • Finally massage your bottoms of your feet. As with the head, you can spend more time on this important area of your body. Use the palm of your hand to massage the soles vigorously.
  • Allow absorption for 20 minutes before a warm bath or shower.
    During this time remain warm, avoiding chilling. Some people have set aside special Abhyanga clothing and towels that they don't mind getting abit oily. Consider wearing your abhyanga clothes and either walking outdoors (in warm weather) or practicing gentle yoga stretches.
     

HOW DO WE MAKE OUR OILS (THAILAM)?

Solavedi Ayurvedic Oils are made by hand, in very small batches.
Each oil is made in accord with AFI (Ayurvedic Formulary of India)- in part by Ayurvedic physicians (vaidyas) in India - and in part by me.

Only premium quality, certified pesticide - free plants are sourced and selected.
Knowledge of herbology is critical in determining the ingredients used, and of how each aspect of the plant material is to be treated.

For example, Ayurveda oil is always made from a decoction and a paste.  A decoction will be prepared from one or more varieties of plants, which is then brewed and concentrated (dravyha).

Over a long period the moisture evaporates andthe consistency of the paste changes, revealing the characteristic features of the thailam.

The work is arduous and many of the herbs required aren't native to New England where I am, so I am working in alliance with trusted Ayurvedic physicians (vaidyas) who provide the initial decoctions for me.
Once I receive the dravyhas I hand constitute your thailams per order.

Your oil, and the power of love and nature that has been contained within it, is then bottled for your benefit and use.

Ingredients: Organic Light Sesame Oil, Sweet Almond Oil triple infused with certified pesticide-and-heavy metal-free ajwan, ashwaghanda, holy basil, bay laurel, sweet birch, black pepper, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger rt, juniper berry, lemon balm, citrus geranium, musta, peppermint, rosemary, sage
