It has been about a decade since I’ve worn perfume. I love beautiful smells but aside from lotion, shampoo and conditioner, no scents adorn me. When I discovered that most perfume is just synthetic chemicals, many which are harmful I stopped wearing perfume. Over the years I’ve ordered natural brands but I never found one that I truly loved, until now.
Ayurveda is an Indian health system that categorizes health types by doshas. Each dosha has a different constitution. The three dosha types are, Pitta, Vata and Kapha.
For example Vata types get cold very easily and crave warm food. Pittas on the other hand are always warm and enjoy cold food. I recommend taking this quiz to find out what dosha type you are. I took the quiz and I am a Vata-Pitta type. Everyone has a combination of doshas with one being the most dominant.
The Ayurvedic Year by Christina Brown is a wonderful book that guides you through the right types of food, massage, yoga, etc for each dosha type if you would like to learn more about Ayurveda.
I got all three perfumes to find the perfect one. It is no surprise that my favorite perfume oil is Vata, which is my dominant dosha type. This perfume smells SO good! I love the scent! With one word I would describe it as ‘sweet’. It has a lovely sweet scent with some spice. The perfume oil consists of essential oils such as bergamot and vanilla.
I love the simple and minimalist packaging!
The Pitta perfume oil has a masculine earthy scent.
The Kapha perfume oil has a nice uplifting scent with ginger and rosemary oils among others.
The Vata perfume oil has rose petals and the Pitta perfume oil has lavender petals in it.
I love the description of each perfume on the back.
So if you are in the market for some beautiful natural perfume oil, I recommend these Yoke Trade Ayurveda Apothecary perfume oils! There ingredients are all natural with essential oils, among other oils like coconut and safflower seed oil.
You can find their perfume oils here.
Have you ever looked into Ayurveda, if so what is your dosha type?
