What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda ~ The science of Living Time honored recipes of natural beauty were passed down in texts written in Sanskrit, over 5,000 years ago -- ayurveda (pronounced 'ah-yoor-vedha') philosophy -- a system of rejuvenation, beauty and health care. In India, it is believed that exactly blended formulations of ayurvedic herbs and essential oils can assist the skin in cell rejuvenation, restoring balance and helping to slow the aging process. ~ Ayurveda philosophy holds that beautiful, youthful and radiant skin stems from good health. This holistic approach to health and beauty is embraced by men and women alike and is revolutionizing skin care in the same way it is strongly influencing American health care. Ayurveda is a science that takes care of you physically, emotionally and spiritually. ~ Balance ~ The path to health and beauty Ayurveda states that everybody and everything is composed of five fundamental elements - five vibrational modes - called space, air, fire, water, and earth. Each of us is born with all five present. However everyone has them in a unique proportion that determines our individual features, including our skin type, and our inherent physical tendencies. The secret of absolute beauty is to live in harmony with nature's design of us as expressed by our personal mix of elements - that is, our constitution type (skin & body type). Using BINDI products will help you balance your individual elements and reflect both your inner and outer beauty and healthy living. ~ The Doshas The elements(fire, water, earth, air, ether) give rise to three principle biological forces, called doshas. These doshas are Vata (space & air), Pitta (Fire & Water), and Kapha (Water & Earth). Bindi products are formulated for the three skin types (vata, pitta, kapha) plus products for the Basic skin type, which is a combination of two or more skin types.
