Open sesame! We took a challenge: to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles*
We infuse cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. Creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil mingle with a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.
An herbal infusion of tulsi. Invigorating and zesty grapefruit subtly melds with stimulating eucalyptus; fresh Malagasy ginger gives warmth. Energizing.

*Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India.
According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth). These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) are present in everyone.

It is advised to avoid eucalyptus oil when pregnant. We use a folded grapefruit oil in this balm. Using distilled/folded grapefruit oil lowers the terpene concentration and thus the phototoxicity. We follow the IFRA safety guidelines and use all essential oils at safe levels for 'leave-on' skin preparations.
