Abhyanga Oil

$21.99

Abhyanga is an Ayurvedic practice that involves a warm oil massage made from quality oils, often infused with beneficial herbs and aromatics. This practice is meant to be loving and cleansing, helping to encourage blood and lymph circulation. This imparts softness and color to the skin, decreasing the signs of aging and nourishing the body. It helps to pacify the vata and pitta doshas most of all. The massage can also extend to the scalp and hair to add shine and vigor to the hair.

This massage oil has been made with all doshas in mind to help generally moisturize and nourish the skin cells! If you are looking for something specifically to pacify your dosha, please contact me directly, as these products are not yet available.

To perform abhyanga, you may choose to gently warm the oil in a warm water bath, or you may use the oil at room temperature. Massage the oil into the trunk using circular motions, and then using long sweeping motions to massage down the front of the limbs. Massage the back of the limbs using the same sweeping motion in an upward direction. Massage into the scalp using small circular motions. The suggested time to spend on the whole body massage is 15 minutes. It is recommended to perform abhyanga prior to your asana practice, and before showering/bathing, however due to our climate it may be better for your skin to leave the oil on if it is absorbed quickly. Do what feels right!

It is advisable to avoid performing abhyanga during menstruation, during a fever or chills, with aggravated kapha, or other health conditions which your health care professional may advise against massage.
