Indian mythology speaks of Shakti the Supreme Goddess. She is a creative force, giving Life and Form to her counterpart Shiva’s transcendental, omnipresent Energy. This Women’s Day, Kama Ayurveda has a message for women everywhere. We applaud you for shouldering your share of Shakti’s crucial responsibilities. You do justice to that marvellous gift of reinvention She has bestowed upon you.


You are tirelessly ingenious, and constantly replenishing those around you. But, what do you do to replenish yourself? Consider these special Kama offerings in your beauty regime; so you can savour the feeling of pure, restorative self-love, on Women’s Day, and all through the weekend following it!


MASSAGES FOR AN EXHAUSTED, OVER-WORKED BODY



Kama’s Sugandhadi Rejuvenating Body Treatment Oil is a 100% Ayurvedic formulation, ideal for overwhelming feelings of stress and burnout. If you do not have time for a full-body massage, heat the oil lightly and rub into your hands and feet, or the particular parts most prone to pain and stiffness. Whey and Sesame Oil give deep conditioning. Jelly Leaf, Indian Madder, Ashwagandha (Winter Cherry), and Tailed Pepper clear up lymphatic congestion, and help build muscle tone. Leave on for 30-60 minutes. Wash off in the shower, or opt for a hot towel treatment. You can take it along for your manicure-pedicure session as well.


100% AYURVEDIC HOME-SPA FACIAL TREATMENTS


FOR DULL, PIGMENTED SKIN



Try the award-winning Brightening Scrub, which contains Kama’s indisputable Kumkumadi Thailam (Oil), made of pure Kashmiri saffron. This fragrant, non-sticky skin polisher with Kashmiri Walnut and Almond Shell Powder, and soothing Calamus, provides decadent relaxation, and deep cleaning. You can use this convenient and time-efficient treatment 3 times a week, at maximum.


FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN



Nimrah Anti Acne Face Pack gets its tawny colour from Red Sandalwood, which controls excessive oil secretions. The grassy scent of Ashwagandha blends well with that of Vetiver. Both are a blessing for sensitive skin types prone to rashes, redness, and inflammation. Lodhra and Coriander revive skin vitality with their brightening and astringent qualities. Mix with clean Water or Buttermilk, and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Mild tingling may occur, because of the concoction’s inherent potency. Enjoy the cathartic grainy coarseness of this remarkably invigorating product!


THE VERSATILITY OF COCONUT OIL



Kama’s Extra Virgin Coconut Oil makes you dream of that long-awaited Summer break, with its tropical, nutty scent. Use this delightfully lightweight oil for a head massage, or mix with good quality, warm Castor Oil, for scanty, balding patches of hair. Apply on your strands, or on the tips as a serum, to tame frizz and fly-always.


ANTI-STRESS AROMATHERAPY WITH ROSE, JASMINE, OR LAVENDER



Soak up the tranquil, emotionally grounding therapy of Kama’s Rose and Jasmine, or Lavender and Patchouli Body Cleansers, and Body Moisturisers. You can also use the Lavender Essentuial Oil in a diffuser for a good night’s sleep, or infuse your personal space with one of Kama’s signature, and most beloved candle scent – the Kannauj Rose.


Kama Ayurveda wishes you abundant strength and beauty.


This year, International Women’s Day is on Thursday, 8th March.
