Ayurveda Apothecary Kapha Dosha Aromatherapy Oil
Made by Yoke Kapha Multi-Purpose Oil awakens and inspires you. This synergistic combination helps to detox and cleanse the body, while also supporting a deeply restorative and replenishing self-care ritual.
Kapha Dosha Characteristics + Balance:
Kapha personifies heavy, slow, cool, oily, soft and viscous characteristics. Ruled by the elements of water and earth, this dosha expresses calmness, smoothness and steadiness when in balance. When out of balance kapha is prone to sluggishness, immovability, and attachment.
We balance kapha by using herbs and oils that are warming, light and awakening to inspire forward momentum.
Pre-Shower Abhyanga (self-massage) Usage: After morning meditation, rub on body in circular motions starting with feet working toward the neck. Do this in a quiet and undisturbed space. Think of appreciation and gratitude for your body and the love in your life. Take at least 15 minutes to complete. Shower after completion, or use Ubtan Cleansing Grains to remove excess oil prior to bathing.
Post-Shower Usage: Rub on slightly damp skin in circular motions starting with feet working toward the neck to replenish, moisturize and condition skin. You can do this while still in the shower.

I use this oil on mornings when I need to wake up and get going quickly. It has a light, invigorating scent, and leaves my skin moisturized without feeling greasy. It really does help me feel energetic and awake!
We all need a little self-love, and this is an easy way to give yourself some as well as ground yourself, naturally. I use it everyday, post-shower, and don’t wash it off.
During a time of stress and over-dry skin, I began the day with a short meditation, and following a shower,I took a dropper-full of this marvelous fragrant oil in my palms, and rubbed it gently into face, eyelids, temples,neck,& torso. I did not apply a lot and did not wash it off. The effect was always grounding and nurturing and carried into my day with a sense of immense well-being
