Ayurveda KAPHA Massage Oil ~ 250ML


Product Overview

Kapha Traits: The main qualities of Kapha are unctuous, cool, heavy, slow, smooth, soft and static. Kapha and oil share most qualities. Because like increases like, using oil, especially cool oil, may increase Kapha rather than decrease it. However, because oil has the ability to absorb the qualities of substances it is prepared with, appropriate herbal oils can decrease Kapha.

Frequency of Massage: Massage body at least once a week or as needed.
Massage Technique: Kapha types will do well to try a deep tissue massage once in a while using, short, firm strokes other time. 

Types of Oil That Are Best for Kapha: Abhyanga with warm oil is best for kapha. While sesame, corn and mustard oils are all helpful because they are warming, herbal oils are an even better choice for Kapha, as they add more Kapha pacifying properties to the oil. Kapha Massage Oil is a good choice for general use.
