10 Products Your Ayurveda Practice Needs In Spring

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

Rainer Maria Rilke

In Ayurveda, spring is a time of cleansing and rejuvenation for people, animals and the planet. (Panchakarma is often performed at this change of season.) Snow and ice are melting, animals are waking up from hibernation and rain is soaking the earth in many parts of the world as both flora and fauna prepare for another season. For us humans, spring can have a deep effect on our physiology: we sense and prepare for a lightening, a cleansing, a renewal on all levels, and we know that the planet is naturally supporting that process in us. 

Spring is also primetime for colds, coughs, congestion, hay fever and debilitating allergies. But following Ayurvedic principles when creating a set daily routine and choosing treatments and remedies can help us stay vibrant, healthy and congestion-free so we can enjoy all of the beauty and renewal that spring has to offer!

For those of you who are Ayurvedic practitioners, here are our top 10 products that we recommend to have on hand for your clients suffering from Spring/Kapha/Vata-related issues.
