Ajara Tridoshic Shirodhara Oil is for all constitutional types. Tridosha is a Sanskrit word that describes Ayurveda’s three biological forces: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Every individual has some combination of each of these.
The natural conditioners from organic sesame and sunflower oils found in the Shirodhara Oil, as well as several herbs to calm the senses, make this oil perfect for a deeply soothing Shirodhara treatment. The oil is made using the traditional Ayurvedic method passed down through the ages. Only pure, natural ingredients are used, and there are no artificial additives.
Ingredients: Organic Sesame Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Lavender, Amalaki, Brahmi, Bringaraj, Nutmeg, Rose, Sandalwood, Scullcap, and Saffron.
Purpose: Perfect for a deeply soothing Shirodhara treatment. Before performing a Shirodhara treatment, warm 2 to 8 cups of Shirodhara Oil to 98 to 104 degrees.
The shirokarma treatment incorporates about 10-15 minutes of shirodhara in a 90 minute treatment. The amount of oil used depends on the flow. We suggest using 150ml oil (5 fl. oz.) in 10-15 minutes, but with a higher flow rate, you could easily use double it.
A full shirodhara treatment with an ayurvedic doctor present would use about 2 litres (half a gallon or about 8 cups).
