Ayurvedic Tools for Natural Self-Nurturing
Sometimes, simply showering ourselves with love is one of the most deeply healing gifts we can offer. Renowned for its practical elegance in balancing the body, mind, and spirit, Ayurveda often emphasizes healing from the inside out. But the Ayurvedic tradition is also rich with beauty rituals and other self-nurturing practices that focus more on the exterior of the body. Here, we offer you some of Ayurveda’s broad collection of indulgent and nourishing self-care practices in the interest of promoting health and beauty from the outside in.
We hope to inspire you with a number of therapies that foster radiant skin, healthy hair, rejuvenated tissues, and graceful aging. What’s more, we think you’ll love pampering yourself in this way. Not only will you be meaningfully tending to your physical body, but the benefits of doing so will undoubtedly reach well beyond the surface. This is where do-it-yourself day spa indulgence meets the depth and beauty of the Ayurvedic wellness tradition. Enjoy!
Expanding Your Self-Care Routine
As you may well know, Ayurveda is big on routine. A daily routine is seen as a way to consistently promote optimal health with supportive lifestyle choices. For many of us, personal hygiene, beauty rituals, and other types of self-care are already habitually built into the day. Whether it’s brushing the teeth, combing the hair, washing the face, applying or removing make-up, bathing, moisturizing, exercising, or even sitting for a few minutes of meditation, most of us have at least one—and often several—self-care routines already.
This resource is meant to expand your bag of tricks. It is full of ideas, but it is not meant to be overwhelming. Remember, this is a choose-your-own-adventure; focus your attention wherever you like. Come back later and expand your routine (if you want to), or not; it’s entirely up to you. The point is to deepen into the field of self-love and self-nurturance in a way that is meaningful for you. Most of these practices can either become a regular part of your routine, or they can be enjoyed intermittently, as you feel inspired.
