Dipping your toes in the world of Ayurvedic medicine can seem overwhelming, especially with so many different schools of thought and opinions pulling you every which way. But it doesn’t have to be difficult, and the sooner you can start reaping the health benefits of this ancient practice, the better.
Ayurveda is an Indian healthcare system dating back 5,000 years and roughly translates to ‘the science of life’ from its Sanskrit root words. The core principle of Ayurvedic medicine is that freedom from illness is achievable not just by simply treating physical indicators, but by bringing your mental awareness into balance. In doing so, a state of harmony is established between your mind and body, and this balance is what sets you on the path to ultimate health.
Nourishing your mental wellbeing is a core objective of everything we do at Kindred Rituals, and we harness the teachings of Ayurveda within the creation of our products to make this as simple as possible for you to achieve. Setting in place small daily rituals to show up for yourself during the day (even if it’s only for a couple of minutes) can greatly aid in balancing your mind, body and overall health. The best part is, you don’t need to know all the secrets of Ayurveda to get started - diffusing your essential oil, rolling on your chakra oil, or spritzing your body mist spray simply require you to breathe, repeat your mantra, and be present a little more often, yet automatically assist you in practicing ‘the science of life’.
