What is Vata dosha and Vata type skin?

In Ayurveda, Vata dosha is the combination of air and space energies. When out of balance, Vata type skin can manifest as dry, dehydrated, dull, and flaky with signs of premature aging.

Beauty Editor Approved

I love how simple this oil blend is, made with sweet almond oil, sesame oil and the essential oils of sweet orange, rose, cardamom and geranium. It doesn’t feel overly greasy, yet is extremely nourishing. A little goes a long way- you only need 2-3 drops to help smooth and soften your skin.

They said, “young looking 61 year old”

I had a routine procedure & the anesthesiologist & Nurse said I looked like a young 61 year old. They asked for my secret & I said Pratima! I spelled it for them so they would be sure to find it online. I told them the Vata oil for dry skin works wonders & the sunscreen has helped me avoid sun damage for several years. Thank you Pratima for such great products!

Deeply nourishing

I’ve been using Vata essential oil for almost ten years and it seems as if my skin hasn’t aged. I’m 39 but people tell me my skin looks like I’m in my 20’s. It simply feels amazing and is the only thing that works for dry skin.
