Ayurvedic Herbs For Summer
Brahmi – Brahmi is a nervine that soothes, relaxes, and balances the doshas. It eases anxiety and stress, reduces inflammation, helps lower blood pressure, and has anti-cancer benefits. Combined with chamomile, cumin, coriander, and fennel, this tea will keep you cool and collected all summer long.
Manjistha – I love this Pitta massage oil from Banyan Botanicals. It’s my favorite to use during the summer months for the practice of Abhyanga. If you haven’t tried abhyanga, check out my Youtube video here.
Neem – I particularly love adding Neem to my ghee. Ghee is the optimal delivery system for herbs according to Ayurveda. This ghee is fantastic for your skin, it’s purifying and cooling in nature, helps keep blood sugar in the healthy range, improves metabolism, and benefits gut health. Order your small-batch hand-crafted organic cultured neem ghee and enjoy this summer.
Rose – ahh rose. The sacred, high-vibration plant ally is a favorite during summer. It’s a heart tonic and is loaded with polyphenols or antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits. Rose helps you feel serene and brings the energy of love to your world. Mountain Rose has some of my favorite hydrosols and essential oils.
Shatavari – Shatavari is a nourishing tonic for all genders but is especially supportive for the female reproductive system during all phases of life. It calms the mind, builds ojas or the nectar of vitality and immunity, and is amazing for the skin. This is my favorite beauty balm which combines shatavari and rose geranium.
