What is Ayurveda?


Science of Life

Ayurveda is Sanskrit for science of life.  This ancient system of wisdom and healing proposes that full health, vitality, and beauty, are the result of the dynamic integration between our mind, body and spirit.

According to the ancient philosophy, our energy manifests itself in what we call Doshas, which are derived from the five natural elements of nature - earth, water, fire, air, and ether. There are three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Everyone is made up of all three but one is typically more dominant. Learning your unique dosha ratio can serve as a guide to create an exquisite daily holistic regimen tailored to your specific needs.

At Mullein and Sparrow, we use Ayurveda as a basis for honoring your unique beauty because there is no one-size-fits-all standard for beauty or health. From holistic ingredients to harmonious formulations, Ayurveda is powerful medicine for balanced living.  Incorporating Ayurveda into your skincare routine will naturally nurture your skin from the inside out.
