Herbal Oils, the Heart of Ayurveda


The application of herbal oil is the heart of Ayurvedic treatment. Oiling the body is a great way to keep the skin soft, supple and beautiful. Herbal oil massage offers great benefits; it normalizes vata and pitta, increases immunity, strengthens bones and muscles, nourishes skin cells, increases longevity, improves the quality of vision, speech, and sleep. It is simply anti-aging.  


Arya Vaidya Sala (AVS) classical Ayurvedic oils are made from sesame, coconut, castor or mustard oil


  • Sesame oil normalizes vata and kapha
  • Coconut oil normalizes pitta, increases kapha
  • Castor oil normalizes vata, increases pitta
  • Mustard oil normalizes vata and kapha, increases pitta

    The most beneficial application of herbal oil is daily self-massage. The regular practice of applying herbal oil before a warm shower or bath is anti-aging. Begin by massaging the lower extremities, work your way up the body toward the heart, shoulders, and arms. Massage with long circular motions for 5 - 10 minutes, and more if you have time. The warm shower or bath helps the oil penetrate. Be sure to use an all-natural soap and completely wash off the oily residue, then towel dry.
