Ayurveda Dosha Collection
Vata - Kapha - Pitta
Why do we have Rituals & Remedies?
We love to gather knowledge & insight through nature & universal wisdom to evolve, create & pass on unique versions of ancient ritual & remedies that treat relevant conditions, that will realistically flow with your modern-day life.
It’s easy to do something one day and forget about it the next.
The issue is we won’t reap positive benefits of a healthy practice if it isn’t in our routine or better still a daily nourishing ritual.
We actually already have more daily rituals then we may think.
Rituals create stability in life, which our minds, bodies and souls thrive off.
“Evolutionary, humans survived by creating order in chaos”
Everyday we have new challenges, & history shows that humans have survived by creating routines, rituals & remedies, even in the most challenging of times.
The reason religion became so important was because it gave people a sense of ritual.
Prayer & congregation helped us confused humans make sense or meaning to this weird & wonderful earth our souls have found this body apart of.
These days, we really don’t need organized religion to practice rituals.
We have the freedom to choose & create the systems that serve us best, which may not be the same as our parents or even in our national heritage.

Wait... What's a Dosha ?
Dosha is yet another word for energy.
Doshas are made up of the 5 elements around us:
Space . Air . Fire . Water . Earth
According to Ayurveda, every being, person, food or object is made up of the 5 elements:
Just like we each have a unique fingerprint, each person was born with a specific constitution, comprised of these 5 elements, that make 3 Doshas.
