Formulated for vata skin, which tends to be dry and sensitive. Organic sesame oil is the most recommended oil for vata skin, because it's warming and high in oleic fatty acid. It provides the much needed moisture that vata skin needs. We've infused it with vata pacifying herbs including rose, fennel, comfrey and ginger, for ~4 weeks.

Formulated for pitta skin, which tends to be sensitive, oily & prone to inflammation (acne, rash, etc.). Organic sunflower oil is the most recommended oil for pitta skin, due to it's fatty acid composition and cooling effect. We've infused it with pitta pacifying herbs including rose, fennel, comfrey, and coriander, for ~4 weeks.

Formulated for kapha skin, which tends to be oily and puffy. Organic sunflower oil is one of the few recommended oils for kapha skin, because it's light and quick absorbent. Kapha skin is naturally oily, and should not use too much oil on a regular basis. We've infused it with kapha pacifying herbs influcing rose, fennel, calendula, and ginger, for ~4 weeks.

Tridoshic Oils ~ suited for all skin
There are a plethora of plant oils, each with a unique composition of fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. In choosing what oils to accompany the infused base of each formulation, we had two requirements: tridoshic + local in the sense of it growing in the Northern Hemisphere. The latter because we believe that local plants are the best at promoting strong, balanced skin - strong, balanced wellness in general.
You'll find these two oils in each formulation:
Pumpkin seed oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, and antioxidants - it's a powerful healing oil, and our favorite!
Meadowfoam oil has very similar fatty acid composition as jojoba oil, making it the Northern Hemisphere sister.
