natural Ayurvedic perfume

 

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’ve never found one that I truly loved, until now. I love the natural natural Ayurvedic perfume by Yoke Trade!

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.

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 more dominant.

The Ayurvedic Year by Christina Brown is a wonderful book that guides you through the right types of food, massage, and yoga for each dosha type. If you would like to learn more about Ayurveda I highly recommend this book.

I purchased all three Yoke Trade Ayurveda Apothecary perfume oils 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 of 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.

 

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. The Vata perfume packaging states “Windswept vata dosha is an energetic dreamer who benefits from the balance of sturdier roots to become focused, grounded and serene.” It recommends wearing whenever you want to feel grounding and I do feel that it does that.

 

If you are in the market for some beautiful natural perfume oil I recommend these Yoke Trade Ayurveda Apothecary perfume oils! Their 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?
