Fall is here! In Ayurveda, we call it Vata season. This means there it is drier than usual, its beginning to get colder, and you may experience some more airy/spacey elements around this time.
Oils are always important to incorporate into your daily routine & into your diet. Especially right now.
IT IS TIME TO OIL UP!
Oils are important for health for so many reasons. Its primary function is to nourish the cells of the body and assist the nervous system in sending messages to your brain. Oils help the intestines absorb vitamins which are stored in the good fats in the body. Oil also lubricates and cushions the body. According to Ayurveda, oil helps reduce vata imbalance which we all have, because air is everywhere around us.
Ways to Use Oil
Use oil on your skin instead of lotion after your shower.
Use a drop of oil in your nose after neti pot, going in the ocean, after being around smoke or if you are feeling dry.
