Self-Care Products for Bath & Body
In the world of Ayurveda, taking care of yourself through physical and emotional self-care is at the very foundation of what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. We live in a busy and chaotic modern world, and it can be all too easy to fill our days with checking off our to-do lists and taking care of everyone else before ourselves.
Often, our own self-care routine falls to the bottom of the list. Ayurvedic self-care is all about filling our own cup first, so that our foundation of wellness can abundantly and naturally overflow from a well-nourished inner reservoir of health.
Our self-care items, beauty products, and spa essentials help to make your daily self-care routine a luxurious and practical part of your day, so that you can put your self-care—and yourself—first.
What Is Self-Care Exactly?
Essentially, self-care is exactly what it sounds like: making time each day to take care of yourself, in whatever way resonates with you. It can be as simple or as involved as you desire.
Anything that nourishes your body, supports your health, calms your mind, and brings you joy can be considered a form of self-care.
Why Self-Care Is Important in Ayurveda
Ayurveda is a holistic system of health, meaning that it views all the layers of our being as one connected whole—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. And in order for us to experience optimal health and wellness, each of these layers needs careful tending and attention.
So, whether it is spiritual self-care, mental self-care, or physical self-care, Ayurveda embraces it all as equally important. When the mind feels peaceful and calm, the nervous system also becomes calm. When the body is vital and nourished, the spirit is nourished as well.
When self-care is given priority in our lives, it brings the whole being into balance and harmony, empowering us to live a life of vibrant and joyful well-being.
Ways to Practice Self-Care
There are endless ways to practice self-care! Ayurveda spells out many specific techniques, but the most important thing is that your self-care feels practical, doable, and nourishing to you.
Self-care may mean getting up 15 minutes earlier to scrape your tongue and drink hot water with lemon in the morning. It may mean carving out 10 minutes of your lunch break to sit in meditation. It may mean lubricating your nostrils with Nasya Oil or massaging your temples with Sleep Easy Oil before you go to bed.
Self-care may mean going on a hike, cooking a warm meal, or sharing tea with a friend. Most importantly, your self-care should be done in the spirit of love— an opportunity to turn your kind and caring attention towards yourself.
