Ayurvedic massage oil formula for the Vata dosha

The Ayurvedic massage oil Vata is designed to meet the needs of soothing, relaxation and calm. Moreover, because people of Vata constitution often have dry skin, cold extremities, aches and pains in the joints, this massage oil combines natural active ingredients.

The archetype of the Vata dosha

Space and air are predominant in six Vata people.

In Vata people, the attributes dry, light, mobile, cold, rough and fast are predominant. Vata massage oil improves skin tone, muscle tone and reduces pain (pain is a Vata dosha imbalance).

Since Vata dosha is dominated by the attribute of dryness, a large amount of oil will be used.

As the cold attribute predominates, hot oil will be used.

As the fast attribute predominates, the massage will be done slowly.

We recognize people with Vata or Vata dosha imbalances when they have very dry skin and hair, when they are very thin and have little muscle mass, when they have dry joints (osteoarthritis) and when they suffer from stress. Too little sleep and/or insomnia are also Vata imbalances.

Most frequent indications for the application of Ayurvedic massage oil Vata :

Poor muscular chewing. Cold feet and hands. Stress.
