Association and relationship of Ayurveda and aromatherapy have always been a confusion for many. To make it clear at the outset, you must understand that aromatherapy and Ayurveda are NOT two different ancient treatment methodologies. As a matter of fact, aromatherapy is an essential part of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is always known as the science of medicine, which works on the body type of an individual. It does not suggest same treatment for everyone, but first, identifies the body type of the person. The main three doshas found in the body on which Ayurveda classifies the body types are- Vata type dosha, Kapha type dosha and Pitta type dosha.
Use Of Essential Oils
There are a number of essential oils available to us. These oils are extracted from specific plants and herbs. Hence they carry strong aroma and are highly concentrated. These oils are extensively used to treat human beings naturally, from various common and serious illnesses. These are naturally extracted oils, and hence are quite safe from potential side effects.
Choice of Oil According To Your Body Type
There are various essential oils such as camphor oil, basil oil, mint oil, coconut oil, cedar oil, etc. , but not all can be used by you. According to your body type, Ayurveda has identified some of the essential oils that can best suit you and help treat your illness.
- Vata type - Ayurveda claims that people with Vata body type are prone to problems like digestive imbalance or constipation, dryness of skin, sleeping disorders, and hypersensitivity. Hence, they should stick to essential oils that are energizing and stabilizing in nature, such as cinnamon, sandalwood, jasmine or sesame oil.
- Pitta Type - People with high pitta dosha concentration in them are believed to be little aggressive, and face anger They are also prone to acidity, constipation and inflammation of the skin. The essential oils that can best suit to the people with pitta concentration are mint oil, sandalwood oil, jasmine oil along with an adequate concentration of coconut oil.
- Kapha type - For people with high Kapha, Ayurveda suggests stimulating and warm oils such as basil, pine or sage oil along with suitable carrier oils. The people with Kapha dosha dominant in them are prone to respiratory disorders and other skin problems. Hence, these essential oils can do wonders for them.
Aromatherapy and Its Effects
It is said that smell or aroma has a great impact on our body and mind because it is the sense that helps particular nerves stimulate the limbic system of your body, which is connected to various bodily responses such as emotions, the balance of hormones, hunger, memories, etc.
Use of aromatic oils for body and head massage is a great technique recommended by Ayurveda to heal various problems such as stress and headache. Use of aromatic soaps or a few drops of aromatic oil in warm bathing water can help relax your nerves and make you feel fresh for the entire day.
