In Ayurveda there are three seasons, with the properties of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. How these are labeled depends on where you live, in the northern or southern hemisphere. The seasons change in approximately the beginning of November, March, and June. To prepare ourselves for the new season, Ayurveda recommends cleansing, or Panchakarma. Not all of us have the luxury of going to an Ayurvedic spa for the full Panchakarma program, which includes massage and other de-toxing treatments, every season. But we can do some cleansing of our own at home with Ayurvedic herbal formulas. Triphala is a combination of three ayurvedic herbs that work together to transform the digestive system. It tones and strengthens the muscles in the colon, and increases the absorption of nutrients into the body. Tulsi acts as a tonic for the nervous, immune, and digestive systems. It helps to remove toxins from the body and also soothes the nervous system. Turmeric works to purify the blood, liver and kidneys and also aids in digestion. Turmeric has powerful antioxidant properties, and can help us to have radiant skin!
The Triple Action Cleansing Set from Organic India includes Triphala, Turmeric and Tulsi for maximum cleansing benefits.
