Sacred Herbal Self Care Daily Routine

Setting yourself up for success starts with the night before. Learn simple and effective tools to create a daily routine that gives back energy. Start to look and feel good in your own skin. Our daily activities have a profound impact on our health. A routine practiced daily is stronger medicine than the occasional remedy.

Establishing healthful habits through attunement of the body to the natural cycles of the day. The three Ayurvedic doshas – vata, pitta, and kapha, each have their own periods of time within a twenty-four-hour day in which their energies predominate. By establishing a routine that “goes with the flow” of these elemental energies, we are able to more easily support the body’s natural rhythms and healing potential.

Learn to make daily tea, infused oils and salves, compresses and poultices, aromatic massage oils, aromatherapy sprays, bath salts, and body scrubs.

Dates to be announced. Online course coming soon.
