‘Abhyanga’ is the oiling and massaging of the body before showering in the morning. It is a lovely ritual to add to your routine, as you begin at your hands or feet with circular movements at the joints and long strokes along the limbs. You can use a basic massage oil or a ‘Tri-doshic’ oil; you can brush the dry skin with a loofah or vetiver scrub first to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate the lymphatic system; or blend your oil into a dry mixture to create a paste that you then massage on and rinse off while in the shower. This paste is made from ingredients that are gentle enough to use on sensitive areas (including the face).
