Synergistic blend of nine herbs. Banyan Botanicals Mission: To help people achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being. We fulfill our mission by: - Empowering individuals to take personal responsibility for their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through the wisdom of Ayurveda. - Producing the highest quality Ayurvedic products using certified organic herbs that are sustainably sourced and fairly traded. - Educating, inspiring and motivating our customers by creating high quality, educational content. - Providing excellent customer service and guaranteed satisfaction. Q. Why does Banyan use plastic bottles, bags and jars for its products? A. At Banyan, we take multiple factors into account in making decisions, including quality, customer service, economics and our impact on the environment. The plastic that we use is PET (#1) and HDPE (#2), which is highly recyclable. Fewer resources (water, electricity, mining equipment, etc.) are used in the production of the plastic bottles versus glass; and given the lighter weight and durability of these plastics compared to glass, there is a smaller carbon footprint created by the shipping of these materials. PET and HDPE are BPA-free and considered safe as containers, though they should not be re-used. We use glass containers instead of plastic for any products that are filled hot (balms, ghee, chyavanprash).

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have been doing ayurvedic self-massage for years. I'm a Vata through and through, and wanted to try out the Vata-specific oil. First, I love the scent. It has a licorice scent to me, and I quite like it. It smells similar to the Nasya oil, if you have tried that. I tend to be very dry, and I like to feel moisturized; in fact, I often bask in oil (head to toe) all day, or even sleep in it. That said, this tends to absorb completely into the skin, moreso than the pure sesame oil I typically use. It's only been a few days, so I'm not sure if this may be a good thing for my face, or if I prefer heavier oiling. My desired effect is to shower, and have a slight filmy residue after the shower, obviating the need for lotion. That probably sounds yucky to some, but a true, dry Vata will relate. :)
I will try to post an update after continued use.
Great oil for anyone with a vata imbalance. Great for the fall and winter season for everyone.
I use this for my abyanga- I love it! it is a splurge for me since I am a student and will mostly use the brands regular sesame seed oil but this stuff is magic gonna save up for it- it worth it it is a little luxury everyday
