Maha Mama : Pre-Post Natal Massage Oil for Mothers

"That is the best health capsule you can ever take—your own breath of life."

In Ayurveda, an abhyanga is a massage (oil massage) which works with breath (more so - prana) to move lymphatic fluid, and overall relax / balance the body.  Herbs infused into the massage oil can be individually chosen for that person's needs.  This oil we chose here is a traditional formula which is most widely used in neurological conditions, muscle and joint pain, soothing occasional headaches, and pre- and post-natal care; it pacifies vata dosha* and kapha dosha*, is warming and grounding in nature. 

Named for the patron deity of Ayurveda, it is a fragrant, sweet & earthy oil. 

This oil can be used for self-application or used for professional massage, pregnancy and post-natal therapy. In traditional Ayurvedic practice, this oil is also used for basti therapy in the 8th and 9th month of pregnancy. 

Ayurveda recommends regular application during pregnancy. It's use will naturally reduce stress marks. Professional Abhyanga massage is recommended in the 7th, 8th, and 9th months of pregnancy, and routinely in postpartum care. It is one of the most emphasized practices for healing from childbirth, and for prevention of many conditions onset by childbirth.  

Apply for 10-20 minutes (can follow abhyanga techniquest), and leave on for 30 minutes before washing off with warm water (bath or hot towel) and a mild soap, if desired.​
