Hurraw Ayurvedic Lip Balms
These balms are based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles (Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India).
According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth).
These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) is present in everyone.
All three balms are infused with rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits & roots known to compliment each Dosha.
