What is the best oil for your Dosha?

Abhyanga (Aby-yang-guh) - Ayurvedic self-oil massage- is considered an integral part of a daily health and beauty routine.

It is the simple act of giving yourself a full body warm oil massage. 

The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much, even if subjected to accidental injuries or strenuous work. By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts, and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age.

— Charaka Samhita: Sutrasthana: V: 88-89

Stimulate healthy blood flow, hydrate the bodily tissues, and stay youthful from head to toe with Ayurveda's traditional abhyanaga therapy at home.

Using high quality organic oil - try abhyanga as you stand in the shower while the water warms up. Work a generous amount of oil from the outer extremities towards the heart. Let the warm water run over you without soaping up and allow the oils to absorb through the skin. Pat the skin dry after your shower and apply a little more oil to any dry parts (elbows, knees, feet etc.) if needed.
