A DIY self-massage the Abhyanga way. We’ve shared the wellness benefits of showing self-love through bodywork (aka giving yourself a little massage), but today we’re elevating the experience with an oil packed with Ayurvedic properties for the mind and body.
First things first, in case you need a refresher, an Abhyanga massage means the practice is done with warm oil. Sounds delightful, right? That’s why we’re giving you good reason to upgrade your next at-home massage session with this Kapha balancing body oil.
OK, we’ll rewind, what’s Kapha? In Ayurveda, the Kapha relates to the structure of the body and is known for holding the cells together to form muscle, fat, bones, and tissue. It’s important to keep Kapha balanced as too much can lead to excess fluid retention, weight gain, etc. Hence why this specific body oil aims for slimming results. Because in this practice, it’s all about balance to reach a holistic mind and body synergy.
