Collection: Spring Collection

Spring Equinox is the balance of light and dark. The time of the year that the number of hours of sunlight equal the number hours of darkness.

It's a time to embrace hope, plant some seeds - figuratively and/or physically, do a spring clean in or homes and in our bodies.

We can embrace the sunlight energy happening in nature around us as well as the lightness in the air. The return of the sun ignites the fire of growth in this season.

In Ayurveda, it is the season of Vata which is the combination of Air and Ether elements. Vata brings change with wind and movement in ourselves and in the earth around us. The ether element helps create space in the earth again so that water element from winter can soak in deep and nourish those seeds that have been waiting patiently. 

What are you hopeful about this spring? What seeds do you want to plant?

What happens in our bodies in the spring from an Ayurvedic perspective?

With the return of the air and ether element, we may feel lighter in mind and spirit, but also in our digestion. We may be gassier than usual. The wind can be drying on our bodies. When vata is out balance in our bodies, you may experience dry skin, constipation, coughs, and colds, lack of appetite, anxiety and trouble focusing or following through. We are just coming out of the water season of winter, Kapha, which is heavy and moist. This wet energy spills into spring in the form of mud, juicyness of the seeds and us. If you are still feeling sluggishness from winter, this might be a sign of kapha energy still in your body. Lightening things up with some spring foods and herbal medicine and movement can help move that damp energy to where it needs to go. Don't dispel it too quickly, just like in nature, we want that moisture to soak in to the soil around the seeds and trees and wild flowers so that it can help nurture. Too much heat in spring dries the soil out too quickly, just like us. 

Spring Rituals to Bring Balance and Embrace the Season

Foods/Herbs: To get our bodies ready for spring, we can start including bitter foods like dandelion leaf and root, spinach greens, Burdock root, Coffee can be helpful occasionally (if that is something you enjoy and your body loves it too), astringent tastes like spruce tips, which will make you pucker your lips if you ever try a fresh one. The third taste of spring is pungent, such as black peppercorns, ginger root, hot peppers. Adding in a bit of spice can help warm things up in our bodies just like the sun is warming the earth.

It is a good time for a cleansing ritual, but make it a nourishing cleanse with lots of greens, soups, warm salt baths, and tend to your skin and your nerves with oil massages and body butters.
