With October quickly approaching,Vata Season is upon us. At Back To Bliss, we are attempting to bring the natural Ayurvedic cycles of nature into our programming. With three main phases of the year, we are bringing you programming based on Trimesters, four months to each season. This usually includes and down cycle for the last season and the uprush of new energy for the next season.
Vata Season is October through the end of January. Being some of the coldest months of the year, this time of year often leaves us feeling drained and down. On a deeper level our body is transitioning for the wintery weather ahead. Our skin may start to dry out due to the changes in the temperature, humidity or just the additions of the seasonal winds. The dust, mold, and allergens are starting to build in the air and clog pores or respiratory systems. In order to balance with these changes we should add some warm and comforting scents to our routines. Emily has formulated a blend to do just that!
Orange, Cypress, Ginger and Ylang Ylang all blend together for a warm and inviting scent that provides energetic balance for the season ahead. Orange is great for fighting depression, a diuretic, and helps to calm nerves. Cypress helps boosts the immune system, helps us to fight respiratory issues, it speeds up wound healing, and soothes skin conditions. Ginger aids in calming digestive issues, it is a great anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and stimulating agent that gets the blood pumping. Ylang ylang will help balance and soothe the warmth of this oil, it’s an aphrodisiac and helps to calm the skin and our soul.
Using our Signature Scent in a massage oil and regularly getting massages during the whole season can help you better transition from the heat of summer to the cold of fall. It will help you to dispell the gloom on your spirit that often comes with a decrease in daylight and a restriction to the activities of summer.
Our Signature Scent for this Vata Season has been added to several products. These products have been created to help complete your wellness routine and focus it for this seasons stresses.
