We all can use support for our muscles and joints from time to time, whether it be after a good, long work-out, in preparation for a long and active day, or for some additional support in our golden years. The muscle tissue (mamsa dhatu) and bone tissue (asthi dhatu) serve the function of supporting our body, and by doing so they support every aspect of our lives. The last thing we want is to miss out on life’s adventures because of physical discomfort.
It is of utmost importance that our muscles and joints are nourished and cared for, starting in our youth. Proper care of these tissues from a young age decreases the likelihood of running into challenges later in life, particularly if you are one to make optimal use of your muscles and joints with a very active lifestyle throughout your life.
Through the ages, the ancient healers of Ayurveda have used Mahanarayan oil for this very purpose. The oil alone provides nourishment, strengthening, and lubrication. This is particularly important in the joint space for synovial fluid hydration and where wear and tear is a natural process of aging.
Added to the oil is a combination of herbs that bring comfort and further strengthen and nourish the tissues. This leaves muscles and tendons feeling relaxed and renewed.
Banyan Botanicals’ Mahanarayan Oil is based on the classical recipes used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. Our oil is unique in that it is 99% organic and we only use herbs that we can cultivate in a sustainable manner that respects our earth’s natural resources. This is a core value of Banyan Botanicals. Key ingredients are dashamula, shatavari, ashwagandha, and bala, herb mixtures that calm and rejuvenate vata. Camphor, clove, and musta ease discomfort. Ginger and turmeric support the burning and cleansing of natural toxins. Punarnava, licorice, and fennel assist in moving lymph and toxins so that they do not stagnate in these crucial spaces. A number of other herbs work synergistically with these to provide a well-rounded and complete oil.
Mahanaryan oil can be used in a number of ways. Try massaging your muscles and joints before long or strenuous activity as a supportive measure. Alternatively, try using the oil after activity to ease natural discomforts that may arise with activity. Many people use the oil daily with their self-massage or before bathing, particularly if there are problematic areas.
See what works for you! We hope you find some relief with this oil no matter how you use it.
