In India and around the world, Ayurveda is re inventing itself. More and more people around the world are looking to substitute commercial chemical based products with more natural and low chemical based options for skin care. Ayurveda is the new upcoming trend because of its natural ingredients and virtually no side effects. Natural and organic products which are pure, revitalise and rejuvenate your body and make it healthy and beautiful from within.
We at Soulflower realised the benefits of nature and ayurveda a decade ago and since have been re inventing traditional benefits into to brand new forms.
Soulflower wanted regular people to be able to use and benefit from traditional ayurveda. They also knew that people did not have patience for time consuming and expensive treatments. So Soulflower packs traditional natural ayurvedic benefits into its handmade soaps, massage oils, bath salts and its other Spa@home products.
The truth about Ayurveda is that it is governed by the fact of what we eat, how we live, in which environment we live, and the state of our mental health. Ayurveda tells us of the framework in which we can modify our lifestyles to optimize our bodily functions. Ayurveda teaches us how to age with dignity and grace as Ayurveda emphasizes the role of mental health in maintaining physical health.
Here are 15 simple and easy Ayurveda principles which you can add in your daily routine to help you feel fitter, healthier and happier.
# 1: Wake up early To enjoy the benefits of Ayurveda make sure you rise up before dawn, say at around 4.30-5.00 am. This is the most fresh and pure time of the day. Grasp this freshness that is present in the air, so that you spend your rest of the day with positive vibes and energy.
# 2: Include Ayurveda Eating If you want to stay ‘disease-free’ then have a close look at what you eat. Emphasize more on fresh, seasonal, organic fruits and vegetables. Stay away from oily-junk food, as far as possible. If you include ayurveda eating in your diet, then your body will start developing energy and help to clear toxics.
# 3: Start your day with sweetness Start your day with “honey water” using a teaspoonful of good quality honey in half a pint of still water. This is the best step, to kill all toxics from your body. Besides, it also possesses various bacteria-killing properties.
# 4: Restful sleep is important Our body needs time to rejuvenate and to detoxify, and the best time for this process is sleeping. When we get good sleep, our inner cells work in harmony to strengthen our immune system and circulate vibrant energy throughout our body. To get good sleep, try taking a warm bath before bed and use essential oils such as Soulflower Lavender or Ylang Ylang to calm you down. Complement this with slow and deep breathing.
# 5: Walk for better life Go for a morning walk or just walk to take a break from a very stressful day at work. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It provides mental, physical and emotional peace without straining your body.
Life# 6: Make a schedule Construct a schedule of all the things that you will be doing throughout the day and stick to it. Sticking to a planned schedule will help to avoid disturbance and will create a mental, physical and emotional balance in your body.
# 7: Eliminate your toxins As soon as you get up, try to clear your bodily toxins in the form of urine or poop. If you delay your excretion process, then indirectly you will be poisoning yourself which can further create chronic problems later in life. So maintain a schedule to get rid of dirt from your body.
# 8: Healthy herbs is important Start using healthy herbs and spices like fresh ginger, turmeric, garlic, cumin seeds and black pepper in your cooking as far as possible. All these herbs have properties to reduce bad cholesterol, protect vital organs and trigger the body’s metabolism.
# 9: Hydrate yourself well Drink sufficient amount of water every day. Water is the best source to flush out toxins from the body and to ensure smooth running of the digestion system.
# 10: Oil massage Try oil massage every morning to safeguard yourself from wrinkles and other aging damage. Oil massage in the morning will prevent drying out of the tissues and nurtures your mind and body. Besides, it also gives a healthy looking complexion to your skin. Try using Soulflower massage oils like Refreshing, Calming, Tea tree or make your own blend by adding a few drops of your chosen Soulflower essential oil with Carrier oil.
# 11: Exercise is essential Include exercises like cycling, yoga or any other aerobic exercise in your daily regime. A good 30 minutes of exercise will help to keep disease away, maintain your weight and will enhance your body’s blood circulation.
# 12: Meditate Just disconnect yourself from the outer world by taking a break. Just sit down and close your eyes for few minutes. This technique will help to give you inner peace and you will feel healed after the session.
# 13: Do the milk therapy If you frustrated because you are tirelessly shifting position because you are not getting sleep, in spite of a tiring day, then drink a glass of warm milk. This technique will help you to fall asleep quickly. Milk should be organic and free of additives, and boiled with a pinch of cardamom before it is drunk in order to make it easier to digest.
# 14: Make your own skin pack Instead of using artificial skin products, opt in for totally naturally products on your skin. The best way to nourish your skin is by making your skin-packs by yourself. Make your skin-packs using those ingredients which are totally safe to eat like honey, rose water, cucumber, almonds, milk and yoghurt to moisturize your skin. You can also use Soulflower 100% veg soap barsthat are made with the freshest of ingredients and are chemical free.
# 15: Bond with nature When you have a break, instead of spending time with your gadget spend time with flowers and trees. If you give up your gadgets for a day and surrender yourself to the nature, then the sense of connection with Mother Nature will soothe you and make you forget all your worries, problems and stress.
