There is a whole science on how to mix oils based on the individual’s constitution. But, I will keep it simple for our purpose, which is an ultimate wellness made easy!
I like my oils warm. However, if you live in the hot climate and feel over-heated, you can use cold oils.
At the beginning of my journey, I used oils prescribed by my Ayurvedic doctor, Scott Gerson.
I feel like mixing my own and buying pre-made has the same benefits for my skin. Here are some options for you to choose your oils:
- Look for a qualified Ayurvedic doctor. The consultation with a doctor would cost anywhere between $200 to $500. If you have other issues, it might be a worthwhile investment. Scott Gerson is the only doctor I’ve ever seen. He is extremely qualified. It’s been over ten years since I’ve seen him. But, I never stopped learning and practicing.
- Make your own: mix up sesame oil – 1 table spoon, coconut – 2 table spoons, olive oils – 4 table spoons (double or triple up so you can use multiple times).
- Buy pre-made: I use Tri-Doshic Massage Oil 34oz for $45.95. It lasts a long time.
Mix oils in a larger container and pour into a smaller glass container for a daily usage.
Step-by-Step for Self Massage:
- Place the small bottle in hot water for a few minutes (or refrigerator).
- Stand on a towel in your bathroom.
- You can skip your head massage if you don’t feel like washing your hair.
- Message in a clockwise direction, starting with neck, hands, navel, moving towards feet.
- Use long, downward strokes along the muscles and circular movement on your joints.
- You can leave the oil on your body or wash it away with warm water, with or without soap.
- You can try not to use soap instead just dry with a towel.
