Product Description

This gift basket is great for making all the Love and Prana Recipes for kids age 7-77!

Kids are in tune to receive more soma from the environment and from the food they eat.  Kids need soma because they are building their bodies.  They need it to grow. 

These special spice mixes for kids allow them to make use of all the soma they receive.  They very gently stimulate digestion and metabolism so that the soma they receive gets transformed into ojas, neuro-hormones and neuro-transmitters, and into the seven dhatus, or types of tissues.

Kaumar Bhritya

Among eight branches of Ayurveda, Kaumar Bhritya is an entire branch devoted solely to kids and kids health.  The main rishi, or teacher, for this branch of Ayurveda is Maharishi Kashyap, who wrote the Kashyapa Samhita many centuries ago.  This text has been the main source of formulas for kids in Vaidya Mishra's family tradition of Shaka Vansya Ayruveda.

According to the Kashyapa Samhita, kids receive more soma (nourishing, lunar energy), which is the vibrational material that gives growth and stability in our lives.  That is why naturally sweet tastes (which are rich in soma), along with non-salty agni are the way to go when feeding kids.  Salt is actually counter-indiciated for young children, especially infants as they have a hard time absorbing and processing salt.  The taste buds for salt do not even develop for several months after birth.

Soma and Agni

Kids need soma (sweet, nuturing foods), but whenever when soma is fed, there has to some agni (spices or heating processing) given too.  Soma always needs agni in order to be processed and transformed into the healthy tissues of the body.  If soma is given without some agni, you will make ama (undigested food in the body) of the soma.

Vaidya's range of spice mixes for kids add non-salty agni to the diet to gently stimulate digestion and metabolism for kids.  All five spice mixes, listed below, have a sweet flavor, but they also have different kinds of aromatic ingredients.  All aromatic ingredients have the sukshma (subtle, tiny) and tikshna (sharp and fast moving) qualities, which are agneya (warming) qualities.  This little bit of gentle agni helps transform the soma of the food to ojas.

Ojas is the subtlest end-product of digestion and assimilation which supports the immune system, supports the production of neurotransmitters and neurohormones, supports the connection of one organ to another organ in the body, supports the connection between the individual soul and the universal soul, and helps to receive and utilize more pranic energy from nature in the body.

All five spice mixes have this quality described above, and each one has a unique flavor and effect.

Directions (for all five spice mixes listed below)

You can introduce this spice mix when the baby begins to eat solid foods, but add very gradually starting with one pinch.  You can go up to as much as 1/8 tsp until the age of 5 years.  After that, you can gradually increase the amount up to 1/4 or 1/2 tsp in children over five years old.  Use it when boiling milk to drink, in muffins, oatmeal, etc.  It goes well with sugar and honey.

Kids Super Spice #1 - Cooling

This spice mix has a cooling, pitta-pacifying effect.  It is especially good for the child who tends toward a little crankiness, or whose body is a little hotter than others.  It is also good when the outside temperature is hot, in summer.

Here's another tip:  in deep winter, when the channels are clogged and heat is not distributed properly in the body, pitta can also go high.  At this time, the cooling effect of this spice mix can help pacify the pitta

Ingredients:  Fennel, Coriander, Rose buds, Sweet Chinese cinnamon, Natural sweet vanilla powder  (All 100% Organic)

Kids Super Spice #2 - Warming

This spice mix is for winter time and cooler seasons.  It enhances agni in the body so that it can metabolize the excess soma from the environment in winter.  It is also good anytime for kids whose digestion and metabolism is a little slower.

Ingredients:  Sweet Chinese cinnamon, Natural sweet vanilla powder, Fennel, Coriander, Rosemary, Clove Leaf  (All 100% Organic)

Kids Super Spice #3 - Warming

This spice mix is warming, just like #2, but with a different flavor.  It also can be used in winter or for kids whose digestion and metabolism is a little slower.

Ingredients:  Natural sweet vanilla powder, Sweet Chinese cinnamon, Fennel, Clove Leaf, Rosemary, Coriander (All 100% Organic)

Kids Super Spice #4 - Detox

When kids are on a special detox program under the care of a Shaka Vansya Ayurveda practictioner, they need a special spice mix to help with the detox process.  This mix was designed to help bind toxins in the body and get them out quickly and safely.  This spice mix acts as a patya, or food which supports the other herbs given by your Shaka Vansya Ayurvedic practitioner.  It should be used under the guidance of a Shaka Vansya practitioner.

Ingredients:  Coriander, Natural sweet vanilla powder, Sweet Chinese cinnamon, Fennel, Cilantro leaf (All 100% Organic)

Kids Super Spice #5 - Calming

This spice mix was designed especially for kids who have trouble sleeping or tend toward hyperactivity.  It calms the nervous system while gently stimulating digestion and metabolism.

Ingredients:  Orange peel, Natural sweet vanilla powder, Sweet Chinese cinnamon, Jatamansi, Clove leaf (All 100% Organic)

Preservative and Additive Free

Children's food in general has a lot of additives and preservatives.  It can be hard to find food, even in a health food store, which does not have unwanted ingredients. These kids' spice mixes are additive and preservative free, and they make it easy to cook fresh food your kids will love.

Because there are no preservatives, please keep them away from contamination, including your own fingers and hands.  Keep in a cool, dry place.  And store in a sealed container to maintain the freshness of the aromatic ingredients.

...And yes, adults (from 7 to 77) can eat these spice mixes too!  But only if they check with their kids first. :)
