MY TOP 5 AYURVEDA SUMMER SURVIVAL ESSENTIALS
I adore Rose in all of its glorious forms - flowers, water, tea and oil - but ohh the beauty of rose water just cannot be beaten! It’s become one of my most favourite and essential ally's over the summer months, which I just would not be without.
If you don't already know - this amazing plant is packed full of medicinal, healing properties in Ayurveda. It's deeply calming, hydrating, soothing and cooling all at the same time.
For fiery pittas, this is very good news, especially on hot, summer days . Furthermore, it helps to balance our emotions / the heart chakra, reduce stress and promotes glowing, radiant skin .!!
For me, Its an on-going love affair!
