the doshas

In Ayurveda, the Doshas (constitutions) describe our physical, mental, and emotional characteristics. Through understanding the distinct qualities of the three Doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), we can move towards healing and well-being.

Most of the formulations have been carefully balanced to be beneficial for all the Doshas, and thus beneficial for all.

You will also find formulations that are best suited for a particular Dosha(s). As intricate, complicated creatures, most of us will see ourselves in more than one Dosha:

Vata types are naturally energetic and lively.
They require warmth and nurturance.
Their skin is prone to dryness and wrinkling.

Pitta types are naturally active, warm, and driven.
They require cooling and calming.
Their skin is prone to inflammation and irritation.

Kapha types are naturally radiant and calm.
They require invigoration and rejuvenation.
Their skin is prone to scarring and oiliness.
