Oil gets a bad rep…
Yeah, of course, you don’t want to overdo the processed oils and fried foods. But, there’s such a thing as “good oils” that can actually make you feel more balanced, nurtured, loved, and even help you sleep better!
One of the things I’ve learned over my past 11 years of studying and practicing Ayurveda is that you need to adjust your self-care routines for the season. Life, just the calendar year, has different seasons. What looks like “balance” for you in 1 season can be completely different in another season.
Your body is always sending you signals. It’s your job to tune into those signals, get curious about what they’re telling you, and make adjustments so that you can live in alignment and harmony with life itself. When you do this, you find greater ease, joy, peace, and happiness.
I’m not saying any of this is easy. Actually, it’s a lifelong practice and journey. I always tell my clients “become a student of your life.”
So what’s all this got to do with oil?
It’s the Fall season. You may have noticed the leaves are changing color, there’s a crisp dry quality in the air, and a breeze rustling through the leaves outside. These are qualities of Vata, or the Air/Ether elements in Ayurveda - dry, light, mobile, cool.
These qualities are reflected in your body too. That can show up as dry skin, constipation, insomnia, and a general sense of restlessness or even anxiety.
Oil up your life!!
Physically, mentally, and emotionally, you want to add oily, smooth, unctuous things into your life. What does that look like?
