Ayurveda VATA Massage Oil ~ 250ML


Product Overview

VATA DOSHA TRAITS: The primary qualities of vata are dry, light, cool, rough, subtle and mobile. Most of these qualities are opposite to those of oil. This is why warm oil is especially good for pacifying vata.

Sesame is considered to be the “king of oils;” it is the preferred choice of oil for vata because it is inherently warming. If possible, use an untoasted, organic sesame oil. Almond oil and mustard oil are also good choices because they too are warming.

Frequency of Massage: Massage body at least once a week or as needed.

TIP: Use Calming Massage Oil. Apply oil to the feet, a very essential area for grounding and calming Vata.

Massage Technique for VATA: A gentle Swedish massage will help calm a Vata.
