Amber Vata Elixir

Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest forms of holistic medicine and is based on the idea that the world is made up of five elements: space (ether), water, earth, fire, and air. These elements combine into 3 Doshas, or life forces.

Our Amber Elixir represents the Dosha: Vata, which is associated with air and ether.

This mild elixir and provides the hair and scalp with gentle restoration and revitalization. This anti-inflammatory elixir nourishes the scalp and hair. This elixir is especially beneficial for itching, burning, or any irritation of the scalp.

Our favorite ingredient: Ashwagandha - contains protein, iron, vitamin C, and potassium. By dilating the blood vessels in the scalp and improving the circulation, this elixir delivers these vital nutrients deep into the hair follicle.

 

Directions for use

On its own: Start with a scalp massage using your fingertips or our Scalp Massager and Invigorator. After your massage, dispense 2-3 pumps of Amber Vata Elixir onto your fingertips and apply to hairline and thinning areas 2-4 hours before you plan to shampoo.

For a more intense treatment, apply 1-3 hours before bedtime. In the morning, brush your hair with a natural boar bristle brush and wash or style as usual.

Use elixir daily for one week, and then let your scalp rest the following week. Your rest week is the perfect time to do a Zen Detox Hair and Scalp Masque treatment.

Repeat the schedule of one week on/one week off until the elixir is gone.

 

In conjunction with other elixirs: Follow the same steps as above, switching to the next elixir you are using following your rest week. Continue rotating elixirs during your "on" weeks until the elixirs are gone.

Amber Vata Elixir goes well with:
Emerald Kapha Elixir
Ruby Pitta Elixir
Shop the Tri-Color Set

 

In conjunction with the lunar hair chart: Best used in the spring and summer, and fall following the "lengthening" goal. 

Normally, you only need a couple drops of elixir at a time, but in this case, use a cotton ball to apply the elixir generously to your scalp right before you are about to do or receive your lunar haircut—this much elixir should only be used with the Lunar Cut.

The elixir needs to be in your hair for at least 24 hours, so do not shampoo after your haircut. Let it settle in overnight. If you have the luxury of allowing your hair to remain oily, try keeping it in for 48 hours for the ultimate growth boost!
