Kapha season is now officially upon us, running from the last part of the winter through spring. Moisture associated with melting snow and frequent rainfalls are typical of this time. Key words associated with kapha dosha include slow, heavy, cold, soft, and oily. Kapha types are typically larger in stature with strong bones and teeth, cool skin, large eyes, and thick hair. They are warm, compassionate, even-tempered, and hardworking. When out of balance, kapha types may demonstrate depression, water retention, and lethargy. To keep your skin in balance, drink only warm or room-temperature drinks, eat whole and freshly cooked foods, and moisturize your skin with a facial oil every evening prior to bed. Anokha Ayurvedics Kapha Facial Oil contains sweet almond oil, cold-pressed safflower oil, organic lavender essential oil, clary sage essential oil, bergamot essential oil, and vitamin E oil. To use, mix 2-3 drops of oil with the same amount of water and smooth over the skin after cleansing and toning.
