A trio of bracelets inspired by the ancient science of Ayurveda.
Sandalwood: Sandalwood is a major remedy in Ayurvedic medicine. According to Ayurveda, the three life energies in our bodies are Pitta, Kapha, and Vata. These life energies are balanced in a proportion that is unique to every individual, and when the balance is disturbed, ill health is the result. Sandalwood has been known to reduce Pitta and Vata, when they are aggravated, and has a neutral effect on Kapha. It is considered to have bitter, sweet, astringent and cooling properties. In Ayurveda, its most important use is to sedate the nervous system by subduing nervousness, anxiety, and insomnia and reducing nerve pain. Researchers found that it even relaxes brain waves! Sandalwood balances the circulatory, digestive, and respiratory systems too. (http://homeofayurveda.org/tag/sandalwood-in-ayurveda/)
