Vaidya Mishra's Knowledge Newsletter
Did you know that cold weather not only gives you dry, itchy, flaky skin, but it actually ages your skin by depleting its friendly bacteria? Enjoy this balanced blend of herbs and plants to hydrate, replenish, and protect your skin against the cold drying impact of Fall and Winter weather. Pacify vyana vata by warming and rehydrating the cell walls; pacify bhrajak pitta through deep intra-cellular moisturization and cooling; and pacify shleshak kapha by relaxing and dilating the circulatory channels. Ideal for all skin types: dry, sensitive, or oily.
With seasonal changes, our doshic imbalances shift to reflect the new temperature conditions. In the Autumn and Winter time, vyana vata, bhrajak pitta, and shleshak kapha can go high,
Vyana vata gets aggravated in the winter time due to 2 reasons:
our physical circulatory channels shrink due to the cold weather, and end up getting blocked. When they get blocked, moisture and the shleshak kapha in our cells is unable to move. When shleshak kapha is not free to circulate it cannot complete its task of lubricating the body;
drying cold wind creates even more dryness externally, killing the friendly bacteria that live in the skin, further depleting our skin, and bringing about premature wrinkling and sagging.
In this Tridoshic lotion, Vaidya uses many aromatic channel opening essential oils, such as: Peppermint; Camphor; Ajwain; Sage; Rosemary. These help dilate the circulatory channels, so the Shleshaka can move freely through. In addition, Vaidya uses Aloe and Vegetable glycerin to further moisturize the body from within, without clogging the channels. These ingredients help keep vyana vata in check.
Bhrajak pitta gets aggraveted in the cold weather, particularly for pitta type predominant people, because the circulation of heat also gets obstructed due to the shrunk channels. Due to the blocked or poor circulation, their skin becomes more sensitive to the sun. This is further aggravated by the lack of shleshak kapha, which is also slowed down or blocked due to lack of circulation. Vaidya has added lemon to his lotion to help reduce photosensitivity to help with pitta sensitive skin. In addition, the Aloe, Vegetable glycerin, and the Neem, all 3 together, help pacify and nourish bhrajak pitta.
Shleshak kapha gets blocked and accumulated due to shrunk channels. In order to be balanced, it needs plants and herbs with agneya, or warming, prabhava, - ultimate action. Vaidya has added Holy Basil, whose mildly warming properties, along with Peppermint, Rosemary, Calendula, and Citronella, relax our channels to let the shleshak kapha flow through and moisturize and lubricate our channels.
