Vata Balm


Open sesame!

We are always thinking (ok, obsessing) about unique, beneficial and all natural balm combos. Decidedly, we took a challenge; to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles* Ayurvedic who? Dosha what? Hurraw is lucky to have an Ayurvedic practitioner in the crew. Talk about obsessed! After two years of diligently formulating our asanas off, satisfaction arose.

We infuse rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. We melt in our creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil. We mingle in a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.

Vata balm:
An herbal infusion of ashwanganda.
The soothing almond scent is complimented with notes of spicy Guatemalan cardamom and finished off with a lovely lingering of Turkish rose.

The Vata Dosha: dry, quick, cold, light, subtle
Element: air (wind) & ether (space)
Commands: intuition, creativity, imagination, spontaneity
Emotions: anxiety, worry, doubt, fear
Pacified by: sweet, salty, warm

*Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India.
According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth).
These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) are present in everyone.

Ingredients: *Sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, *Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, ‡Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, *Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, *Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil,
Elettaria cardamomum (cardamom) seed oil, Rosa damascena (rose) flower oil, organic flavor, *Withania somnifera (ashwagandha) root powder, Tocopherols (sunflower)

*organic & cold pressed ‡wildcrafted

Please take note if you have allergies: although there are no nut oils in these balms they are made on equipment shared with almond oil. Coconut oil is considered a seed oil.

LOVE this blend. Can detect all 3 scents but none of them are overpowering. bravo hurraw!
This balm smells so interesting and complex, but I was just not loving the heavy cardamom scent. However, the formula and texture is still just as excellent as any other Hurraw balm. I gave this one to a friend and she loves it.
I took a chance ordering this one last week and I am so glad I did. It is so different but pleasant! I will be ordering more for sure!!
I got this for free with my order and I have to say I am surprised not a flavor I would have gone for but I love it! Very refreshing and like all the others glides right on! Thank you Hurraw! I love the personal touches to the invoice and who doesn't love a free balm! I will be back for more!
The lip balm is outstanding, creamy smooth and moisturizing but not thick or sticky. I only smell cardamom in this one which is fine since I like cardamom and almond. I don't smell rose at all but that could just be me. I'm not a fan of rose scents anyway so I'm happy with this. Cardamom is a pretty strong scent so if you're not sure what it smells like, maybe take a sniff of the spice at the grocery store before ordering. :)
I ordered this, chai spice, and kapha, and I was delighted when they came wrapped in brown paper, in their own little bag. Not only that, but my invoice was printed out with a personal message added to it AND I received a free balm (pitta). Will be ordering again :) I'll submit another review once I've actually tried them, but this is simply a review on their customer service.
I really want to like this lip balm, but the cardamom is a little too much for me. Kudos to the Hurraw! crew for the amazing product (so smooooth), fast shipping, and I loved the handwritten notes and the extra balm they threw in for free! I'm a customer for life :) - Stacey! Hey, let us know your order #, we'll get you a refund for the vata :)
This is one of the most moisturizing balms Hurraw has, but it smells like baby oil once you apply it. I had to give it to a co-worker because I couldn't handle the scent. The formula is to die for, however. If powdery scents don't bother you then I highly recommend Vata. *RESPONSE - Hey Alison, THANKS for the kudos and we will totally will send you another flavor on the house (one that you like :), just give us a holler :)
Absolutely love! I'm a restless vata, and this lovely scent helps me remember to take deep breaths and relax. I'd say the cardamon is the most obvious scent here, but it's not over powering. Smooth and creamy like all Hurraw balms.
Very moisturizing and it's scent really fit christmas with the cardamom. ^.^
