Ayurveda entails practices that honor the body, mind and soul! In this article, we share with you five therapeutic ayurvedic practices to heal and nourish your body. 

1. Shiro Abhyanga or Head Massage

Comprised of two words: Shiro (head) and Abhyanga (massage), it essentially means a complete massage of the head, neck, and shoulders using Ayurvedic herbal oils. These areas are most affected by stress, which is why Shiro Abhyanga is beneficial in reducing pain and stress in these regions.

2. Jal Neti or Nasal Cleansing

Jal Neti is a technique used by yogis to stay disease-free and use their breath well for their yogic practices without any blockages. Just as brushing the teeth is dental hygiene, the practice of Jal Neti is nasal hygiene. This technique uses water to purify and clean the nasal path from the nostrils to the throat.

3. Udvartana or Body Massage

Udvartana means “to move something in an upward direction”. This refers to the upward direction of the strokes used during the massage. The massage techniques combined with the penetrating herbs creates heat in the body to help decrease lethargy, release toxins, reduce fluid retention and increase circulation.

Amrutam Herbal Ubtan is infused with the goodness of Ayurvedic herbs like Kesar, Chandan and Chironjee that make for the perfect recipe for a body massage and exfoliation. It helps with reducing tanning, scars and pigmentation along with all the amazing benefits of Udvartana.

4. Jihwa Prakshalana or Tongue Scraping

Ayurveda holds that the tongue directly connects to several of the body's vital organs, including the heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, spleen, and stomach. Tongue scraping gently removes toxins from the tongue itself and simultaneously stimulates, massages, and cleanses the associated organs and deep tissues.


Amrutam Copper Tongue Cleaner


Ayurveda recommends copper tongue cleaner that eliminates the toxins and balances the Tridoshas.

5. Ahara or Diet

According to Susrutacarya, one should eat the proper quantity of food at the proper time by sitting on a raised platform. After meals, we should sit comfortably like a king and then have a short walk. On eating, first, we should take a sweet taste, then salt and sour tastes and then pungent, bitter and astringent tastes.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
