The secret of aromas in Ayurveda

Aromas are an important tool in Ayurveda for maintaining wellness and for healing. Aromatherapy can be used to protect prana, regulate digestion and metabolism, and to boost immunity. Aromas have a subtle, yet extremely powerful influence on our mind and body.

There are many ways that aromatherapy can be implemented. Burning incense sticks during meditation is one way. We can also add rose petals or basil leaves into our bath water. Essential oils make using aromatherapy easy. The vapor of essential oils stimulates our olfactory nerve, which goes directly to the brain. The olfactory nerve stimulates the limbic system, which connects to the areas of the brain that process emotion, desire, appetite and memory. It also stimulates the endocrine glands, regulating hormone levels. We can use a diffuser, or an aroma locket, or an aromatic candle to produce aromas in our environment. Essential oils can also be used in massage, in the bath, and in our skin and hair care products. You can even use essential oils to balance your dosha, to help you sleep, and to calm your emotions.

The Sundari candle collection:

Inspired by the rich histori of holism. Benefit: Honor yourself and your surrundings.


The simple but delicious Indian desert called Amrus inspires the scent. The treat consists of chilled mango pulp garnished with fresh basil fusing both sweet and peppery notes to generate a pleasing multidimensional fragrance.


Gulkand is a traditional Indian recipe. This scent offers a floral base and a suggestion of sweetness. The rose oils are a legend to open the heart and reduce fire creating an atmosphere of balance. The layering of fresh rose petals spun with a bit of honey and sugar mature for a month before adding a splash of milk to create a delectable bouquet.


Chameli is the Indian name for jasmine. This scent has a floral base and a hint of spice. The cool energies of jasmine and lotus flowers mixed with the warm energies of fresh lemongrass and cinnamon induce an enticing aroma.


The long green spathes of the Keora contain fragrant flowers that are dear to the Indian heart. The initial impact is both penetrating and diffusive with a tender hyacinth-honey scent that gradually softens to a gentle, fresh, floral bouquet and is an aroma that inspires creativity and rejuvenation.
