Ayurveda Spice Kits include what you need most, the spices of Ayurveda. These spices support the wellness of body and mind through food! Remember health begins in the gastrointestinal tract and from there then supports all the other biological “fires”, channels, and tissues of the body. Seasonal Salts and Spices of Ayurveda remind us to shift with the seasons and to EatWell and BeeWell.
Each kit contains a Seasonal Salt and Seasonal Spice (specially made and only available in a kit) and often comes with a little lagniappe (a little something extra). Each kit contains guidance for the season to support wellness and balance…for this Summer (Pitta) Kit, that means suggestions to keep you cool in body and mind, while helping you fully enjoy the fiery gifts of summer and pitta!
Each Seasonal Spice Kit is made to order and ready for the Summer/Winter Solstices or the Autumn/Spring Equinoxes. They are specially packaged for you to pick up (or you may choose to have them shipped if you are far away or just like to get exciting things in the mail–treat yourself, it’s ok). They must be ordered by the 1st day of the month of the new season! Don’t hesitate to order in advance for all four seasons. They also make a great, unique and specially made gift, for those hard-to-shop-for loves in your life.
Seasonal Spice Kits for Spring (Kapha), Summer (Pitta), Autumn (Vata), and Winter are delivered to your mailbox or into your hands in time for the new season (March, June, September, and December). I sometimes have a few extra, but if you want to be sure of a Kit, order early! They often sell out fast!!
I absolutely loved receiving my spring box! It was filled with lovely self-care items, some I would not otherwise know existed. Charlotte includes notes explaining what each thing is, how to use it and why it is good for you. A nice way to transition mentally and physically from one season to the next. I recommend treating yourself to one of these boxes each season!
I like all the additional information and instructions with the products, and it’s nice to try out products I’ve never used before. I enjoy using the lemon-eucapytus scrub on my face. The nasya tips taught me new ways to use the oil to better penetrate the skin and nose. The spices and salts are fun to explore in the kitchen–trikatu on sautéed vegetables gives it an interesting new flavor.
I love the spring essence-I hope she puts one in every box.
I have gotten the Fall and Spring Box so far and I love them. The boxes give you a chance to dip your toe into Ayurvedic principles and products without being scary. I have to say I am really enjoying the seasonal oils for self massage. I just need to learn to take more time for myself, which is very difficult for all of us. Charlotte’s thoughtfully curated boxes give a sample of lots of things: seasonal salts and spices which I find very easy to incorporate into my cooking, self massage oils, yummy smelling scrubs, and in the spring box Nasya oil, which I am trying to use every day, even though it’s something I never would have thought of, let alone used, a year ago. It’s the Ayurvedic equivalent of those subscription boxes we see ads for. I continue to take baby steps out of my comfort zone and Charlotte is there to answer any questions and give advice on how to use the goodies in the box. I can’t wait for my summer box!!
