Maintaining glowing, healthy skin can be difficult to achieve in our modern world. Life moves fast, creating stress and anxiety, which negatively impacts the skin - not to mention the levels of pollution that we come into contact with on a daily basis.
In Ayurveda, the quality of your skin can be a very accurate indicator of your state of balance - or imbalance! Along with taking internal herbal formulations, if necessary, it's also important to maintain a regular daily routine, eat warm, cooked food and practice abhyanga (self oil massage) to help heal and strengthen your skin from the outside in.

Ayurvedic self massage (abhyanga) with warmed, herbal oil is an excellent way to get in touch with your body and mind. It gives you time to check in with yourself and find areas that need special attention. Besides leaving you feeling warm, cared for and refreshed, abhyanga soothes your nervous and endocrine systems, rejuvenates your skin, tones muscles, eliminates impurities, promotes youthfulness, reduces the effects of stress, is relaxing and just feels terrific. Overall it's wonderful!
Consider the consistency of melted cheese and imagine your gut trying to break it down - not an easy task. Several modern studies point to the many health risks of regular cheese consumption, yet it is as ubiquitous in our cooking as salt and pepper. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered this recipe! It is so simple that even I was surprised at its tastiness; especially when I added my own flavors to the mix. Hopefully this will offer a tasty alternative to cheese for you as well!
