Soothing Touch Ayurveda Body Lotion Lavender Lace 8 oz. (236 ml) Soothing Touch Ayurveda Body Lotion Lavender Lace will help you end your busy day feeling relaxed, balanced, and ready for sleep. The calming, soothing effects of lavender essential oils are well known. Ayurveda has been practiced for thousands of years in India and beyond. It is a system of holistic health remedies based on balancing the body. This natural, Ayurvedic, moisturizing body lotion is made with tridoshic blend of Ayurvedic oils (Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, and Mustard Oil), to help balance the elements of the body. In Ayurvedic philosophy, there are three major elements in the body: Pita (Fire), Kapha (Water), and Vata (Air). Applying a blend of balancing, moisturizing ingredients to the skin may help the body's elements stay in balance, and help support the overall health and beauty of the skin. About Soothing TouchSoothing Touch began around 1977, in a small garage in Los Angeles, California. The late Yogi Bhajan (Founder), was a Kundalini Yoga teacher and master from India who had moved to the West to teach yoga, meditation, and healthy eating habits. His students were from all walks of life, and they were learning how to live the life of a householder and maintain their yogic lifestyle in an ashram / group environment. In their quest to find a way to support themselves, Yogi Ji provided them a collection of ancient Ayurvedic formulas for oil blends that had been used for centuries in India. He seemed to know the value of a good oil blend for the body and the coming need and popularity of the massage and holistic markets. Thus began the business of Soothing Touch, very simply, with hopes that enough money could be generated to live on.
