Ayurvedic healers recommend using totally natural products on your skin: preferably those ingredients that are also safe to eat. Choose from among foods like honey, Organic Rose Water, cucumber, oatmeal, ground blanched almonds, milk, and yogurt to prepare packs that will exfoliate, cleanse, and moisturize your skin. At Maharishi Ayurveda, we take the definition of "all-natural" even a step further. All-natural actually relates to the ability to protect nature's own intelligence in a product. Not only do we use completely natural ingredients, but we make sure that the techniques used to process those ingredients are such that they do not destroy the natural benefits.

The skin thirsts for your touch and attention. When warm herbalized oil is rubbed gently all over the skin, your body and your mind feel pampered and relaxed. Treat your skin to the magic of self-massage (abhyanga) today. With over twenty powerful botanicals working synergistically, the Youthful Skin Massage Oils for Men and Women are especially formulated to nourish, rehydrate and heal the skin.

Foods that are processed, canned, frozen or packaged are harder to digest, and thus create ama, or toxins. Also, because they are old, denatured by processing, or include harmful ingredients such as chemical preservatives, they no longer contain nature's intelligence. Rather, they create ama and block nature's intelligence from reaching the cells. Just for today, make the effort to eat a fresh, warm lunch. Eat in a settled, quiet atmosphere and focus on your food when you eat.
