The meaning of “Kāmya” in Sanskrit, which has a physical purpose, is to improve the functioning of all body systems. The inspiration and mother of Kāmya is Ayurveda. The word “Ayurveda” means “science of life”. It is the only medical science that not only teaches how to treat diseases, but also describes in detail how to prevent them and maintain an overall good health. Ayurveda teaches natural balance and advises fostering beauty through the consumption of herbs, fruits, vegetables and oils. “Do not put what you cannot eat on the skin” – such an important rule of Ayurveda applies in Kāmya oils.
Kāmya and oils
In today’s modern life the principles of natural living are often ignored. The human body has the ability to eliminate accumulated waste from the metabolic process. Using too many chemicals in our daily lives disrupts the sustainable removal of toxins from our body. Therefore, one of the toxin removal procedures prescribed by Ayurveda is body massage, or oil rubbing. Everything used for skin care enters the body through the pores of the skin, so these products should be pure and healthy, just like the food we consume, just like Kāmya oils.
Kāmya and oil rubbing
Psychologists have been talking for years about the coldness of our society, which gives birth to serious mental illnesses. In Ayurveda, much attention is paid to touches. Massage or oil rubbing can be called one of the practices of the Ayurvedic system that allows you to be psychologically healthy for much longer. The massage in Ayurveda was designed for oil to be rubbed in. On the contrary, it is not the oil that helps the massage, but the massage helps the oil to be absorbed into the body and treated. If an Ayurvedic oil massage is performed – not only it relaxes the body, but it also heals. The oil has the ability to absorb, shrink and carry. We can treat/heal ourselves every morning by rubbing with Kāmya oil!
Oil rubbing benefits
According to Ayurveda, “such attracts such”, so rubbing oil should be a regular part of daily human routine. Oils remove dirt and toxins very well. Vegetable oils and the fat released by our skin (sebum) are similar oily substances that blend perfectly with each other. Therefore, it is the oil that is able to dissolve the dirt that has remained in the pores of the skin, and it also removes the accumulated plugs of fat and corneal cells. Whether the skin is dry or shiny, clogged and or covered with red craters, the oil basically solves both of these problems. For the dry skin, the oil lubricates and helps to return to the natural state of health, and for the oily – it effectively and gently cleanses. Acne, blackheads, cysts are not caused by oils, but by unstable hormones, bacterial rampage, old skin cell buildup, and a bad diet. Rubbing the oil on the skin is also called deep cleansing. This is because rubbing the body with oil warms and relaxes the body’s muscles and absorbs the oil much deeper. t is known that the oil penetrates the body up to 7 cm, so it cleans not only our surface, but also the deeper layers of the body. Once in the body, oil removes accumulated toxins, leaving less of this work to the largest human excretory organ – the skin. The skin becomes healthier and radiant. Oiling the skin is most important for “Vata” type people, who are characterized by a small physique, low weight, dry, rough skin. They are often cold, although they themselves are extremely active, restless, and distracted. Such oil therapy warms them, soothes them, and helps to control the raging wind in them. Less commonly, this can be practiced by hot “Pitta” type people with fairly good skin and fat metabolism and “Kapha” type people with larger, thick oily skin. However, oiling should be done regularly, but not too often – the skin must not forget that it is able to nourish itself.
