We [Hurraw!] took a challenge: to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles*
We infuse rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. We melt in our creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil. We mingle in a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.
An herbal infusion of amalaki. The tropical smell of coconut merges with uplifting Malagasy lemongrass* and the refreshing tingle of peppermint. Cooling.
The Pitta Dosha: fiery, intense, fluid, sharp, transformative
Element: fire & water
Commands: confidence, ambition, focus, intelligence
Emotions: joy, excitement, courage, anger
Pacified by: sweet, cool, calm
*Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India.
According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth). These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) are present in everyone.
