Holiday Gift Guide: Prioritize Self-Care

The Holidays are upon us, and this year, we thought we’d invite you to focus on self-care, replenishment, and relaxation. Honor what aligns you to be your best self and reflect on the year ahead. What are your goals, ambitions, desires, and potential detours? Wherever the new year is taking you, we are here to support you; and the first place to start is with balance and good health.

Put yourself at the top of your shopping list and start the Holiday Season with a little self-love. Taking care of your emotional and physical health allows you to give more to family and friends.


Ground and Go
Are you on the brink of change? Are you starting a new job or moving to a new city? Are you welcoming a new family member into your home? Or maybe you’re just ready for a change, however it comes along? If you answered yes to any of these, support your momentum by keeping a steady pace and a calm mind and by nourishing Vata dosha.

Or perhaps you don’t have major changes afoot, but you just tend to feel worried; in either case, we have the suitcase to take on your journey.

In terms of balance, Vata provides us with the stamina we need to move through changes. Try these supporting herbs and meet your new year with mindful momentum.

(To find out the formulas that suit you best, take the dosha quiz.)

Expect and Exceed
For those striving for accomplishment this year, be it a promotion, the honor roll, or just a little more recognition, this one is for you. With those fiery expectations and the desire to exceed, keep Pitta dosha balanced to maintain focus and accomplish your goals.

In balance, Pitta provides us with the drive we need to go above and beyond. These Pitta-supporting herbals can set you up for success and a year of exceeding expectations.

Relax and Replenish
Craving some self-care and inward focus? Give yourself the gift of self-love through some relaxation and replenishment. Rest is one of the most important ingredients we need for a healthy, balanced life. Nourishing herbals that calm Vata and cool Pitta will support those who have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, as well as promote emotional stability during the daytime hours.

When the body is rested and the emotions are calm, life holds more joy and abundance. Recharge your batteries and restore your balance to greet the new year with promise and possibility.

Nourish and Nurture
Is the new year going to be a time to nourish and nurture those around you? If so, one of our favorite ways to do so is through food. Conscious cooking is what Ayurveda reveres as nature’s intelligence - food as medicine. When prepared with our attention to balancing our predominant dosha (for an understanding of your doshas click here), food can be one of the most supportive and nurturing practices for caring for ourselves and others. Nourish those you love with edible Ayurveda: Dosha-specific balancing spice mixes, savory Organic Rose Petal Spread, and food-grade Organic Rose Water!
