Ayurveda

The Sanskrit word Ayurveda signifies knowledge of life.
Ayurveda really is a science of observation,
a science and lifestyle to truly know oneself.

 

A-yur-what?

Ayurveda is an ancestral holistic health system. A global medicine of the body, mind and spirit recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization). A millennial practice which originated in India and is now practiced worldwide. The word ayurveda means: science of life.

By nature, human beings seek homeostasis (state of equilibrium) which is constantly modified by our way of living and our environment. The ultimate goal of Ayurveda is to bring the individual back to his/her state of equilibrium, on both the physical and emotional levels.

The Ayurvedic practitioner offers pragmatic solutions to regain balance and prevent the evolution of symptoms into diseases. The tools and advice offered by the practitioner will enable you to become autonomous in your approach towards optimal health. You will discover that small daily changes have a huge impact on your long-term health and well-being.

Ayurveda believes in a gentle approach to health.

  

Three fundamental principles of Ayurveda

1.

Digestion
(Agni)

How we digest is everything in Ayurveda. How we digest our food, our emotions, our thoughts etc…

2.

Our vital force
(Prana)

The Prana is our life energy pulsing through our body; oxygen giving us the push to move us forward and uplift our moods. Without prana, there is no life.

3.

Our immunity
(Ojas)

Ojas is like a precious nectar protecting our being. We are born with a finite quantity of ojas and it assures and maintains good immunity when we live a balanced life style.

 

 

THE DOSHAS

Within the philosophy of Ayurveda are the underlying principles of the doshas. The doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment. The doshas derive from the Five Elements and their related properties. Vata is composed of Space and Air, Pitta of Fire and Water, and Kapha of Earth and Water. WILD GRACE products are based on the principles of the doshas. Each category of product (Perfumes, Body Oils & Facial Serums...) offers three different products, each one addressing a specific dosha; Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. 


VATA | TO NOURISH

The Vata Beauty Products were created to balance the dry, cold, variable qualities of the elements of air and space related to the Vata dosha. A predominantly Vata dosha person may experience: dryness, premature aging, thinning of the skin, with a tendency towards anxiety and restlessness. Our Vata-related products offer deep nourishment and calm for the Body & the Mind.

PITTA | TO REFRESH

The Pitta Beauty Products were created to balance the hot, inflammatory, and sensitive qualities of the fire element related to the Pitta dosha. A predominantly Pitta dosha person may experience: sensitivity, rosacea, acne and have combination skin, with a tendency towards inflammation, aggravation, and irritability. Our Pitta-related products offer cooling and soothing comfort for the Body & the Mind.

 

KAPHA | TO ENERGIZE

The Kapha Beauty Products were created to balance the oily, dense and heavy qualities of water and earth elements. A predominantly Kapha dosha person may experience oiliness, cysts, larger pores and/or blackheads, lethargy, water retention, lack of motivation, and over attachment. Our Kapha-related products offer an energizing and stimulating experience for the Body & the Mind.
