The Key to Balanced Living: The Ritual of Ayurveda

In today’s world, there is no power off button. At work, we’re worrying about our personal lives and when we’re at home with family or out with friends we’re preoccupied with what we could be missing at work. The usual demands of our lives compounded with the craze of the holidays can take a toll on both our physical and mental health.

It’s easier to say, when this happens I’ll take a break or as soon as I get beyond this crazy time I’ll pay more attention to myself. But, there’s always going to be one more thing to get done or one more excuse you can make.

Life is all about balance and in 2019, you can find it easily with The Ritual of Ayurveda.

The Brand

 Rituals is a brand that’s about more than making women look good, it’s about making them feel good. From taking a nice long bath to creating a relaxing environment with incense, Rituals reminds us all to find pleasure in the simple moments that make up our lives.

Inspired by the wisdom and ancient traditions of Asian cultures, Ritual created it’s Ayurveda line to promote the ancient art of living wisely. Based on the principle of balanced living, the long-held belief in India improves health and well-being by cleansing and nourishing your energy.

 Rituals harnessed that principle and infused it into every luxurious home and body product in the Ayurveda collection to help balance your body, mind and soul. Made from as many natural ingredients as possible, without potentially harmful chemicals and never tested on animals, you can care for yourself in the best way possible.

The Products

Shower Oil

One of the best ways you can restore harmony to your life without having to rearrange your entire schedule is to add relaxing measures to the activities you’re already doing. We all have to shower – after a while no amount of dry shampoo can take the places of the real deal. For some of us, it’s the only place we have that we’re truly unplugged from the rest of the world.

While in the shower, apply Ayurveda’s shower oil and allow it to work its magic on skin, leaving it beautifully soft. Enriched with ancient ingredients like Indian Rose, the oil does more than just help skin, it helps your mind. A universal symbol of purity and love, Indian Rose’s delicate aroma evokes positive feelings as it unleashes its soothing properties. Step out of the shower with renewed skin and a boost in your mood.

Foaming Shower Gel

Also packed with the power of Indian Rose, the proteins and vitamins of the sweet almond oil nourishes and soothes skin while regulating the moisture balance. All you need for silky soft and nourished skin is to squeeze a small amount into your hand and rub the rich, luxurious foam over your body.

Dry Oil VATA

It seems simple, when you’re stressed, book yourself a spa day and get a massage. But, what about those times when you can’t carve out a few hours for out-of-home relaxation? Are you supposed to just give up on the hope of a massage? Absolutely not. A major part of finding balance in your life is taking advantage of the moments you have to yourself, whether that’s five minutes or five hours.

With Ayurveda’s Dry Oil Vata you can discover all the benefits of Ayurveda’s self-massage known as abhyanga whenever you find a break in your schedule. Enriched with nourishing herbs, the product was specifically designed to balance the Vata dosha.

In Ayurelic medicine, there are three energetic forces of nature, one of which being Vata. Vata embodies the energy of movement, including the flow of breath, the pulsation of the heart, muscle contractions and tissue movement. It’s also linked to creativity and flexibility and when Vata’s in a state of imbalance, it can wreak havoc on our lives.

Ayurveda’s 100 percent natural dry oil uses basil and sweet almond oil to restore balance to Vata in accordance with ayurvedic tradition.

Body Cream

Part of the reason why Ayurveda’s products are ideal for adding a bit of harmony to your life is that they’re carefully crafted with ingredients intended to work toward one shared goal. Still formulated with Indian Rose, Ayurveda’s body cream is also made with Himalaya Honey. Harvested from the virgin forests in the Himalayan mountains, it’s been known for containing beneficial medicinal properties.

In just minutes you can apply the rich cream to your entire body, sit back and let the soothing effect take over.

From the added pressure of the holiday season to the everyday stress of having a to-do list that’s longer than the hours in a day, it’s easy to get dragged down. But, life truly is all about balance and in just minutes Rituals’ Ayurveda collection will awaken your inner harmony.
