Holy Smoke

  Finding the Best Incense in the World - My Adventure I truly believe that Aroma Veda has found the best Incense in the world. Period. The process of discovering and getting to the source of this small-scale, understated, family run Incense has taken me months. But the wait was worth it. This Incense I decided to call “Holy Smoke” is just that, HOLY! My journey started with stumbling upon this Incense locally, in the deep South of India. One whiff and I knew I was onto something extraordinary. By nature, I gravitate to extra-ordinariness in people and things - the kind that arouses deep curiosity and a seeking nature in me. It all happened when I impulsively decided that I was...

Ayurveda teaches us that human beings are an inseparable part of the cosmic whole. It defines true health and well-being as the proper alignment of the body, senses, mind, and soul.

The Beauty of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is truly a holistic therapy that has its roots in the most ancient healing practices of humanity. From the Ayurvedic perspective, it is used to protect one’s life force (prana), improve respiration, blood circulation, regulate digestion, metabolic activities, deflect disease and promote a sense of peace and well being on the mental, physical and spiritual plane.  Essential oils are crystalline structures that carry light. They travel through the space between our cells, where molecules of emotion also travel. In this way, they are able to work on deep levels to bring healing and therapeutic benefits. They have a beautiful way of mingling with the aura emanating from a person. It is no wonder fragrance has been used since time immemorial...

The role of a guru in our lives

In eastern traditions, a guru occupies a very important space in society. The pecking order goes like this: Mata (Mother), Pita (Father), Guru, Daivam (God). The concept of a guru is not readily understood in the west. A guru is someone that guides us towards the light, the knowledge that we need to find ourselves, our purpose and god.

I hope to clarify these concepts in this blog using my own life experiences. I have had many gurus in my journey. Ones that taught me Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, food, astrology, Feng Shui- you name it. Like...
