Indian yogins have lived and meditated in wild forests and jungles since ancient times. Bathing in rivers and under waterfalls as part of their daily rituals and yogic exercises. Wild Earth’s Yogi and Yogini soaps and massage oils are filled with rich Ayurvedic herbs which, for centuries, have been traditionally used by yogins to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin and body.
Yogi or Yogini is a common term for a practitioner of yoga, however, yoga is not just a physical practice - it is the preparation of the body to help achieve stability in meditation. The Yogi or Yogini’s goal is simply to find the truth and awaken to Buddhahood. Keeping in mind the philosophy behind yoga, Wild Earth developed the Yogi Yogini range using the purifying Ayurvedic herbs Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) and Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus). In Ayurveda these two herbs are classed as Rasayan - rejuvenative.
Rejuvenative herbs directly nourish ojas - the life force and radiant vitality of a healthy person. Rejuvenative herbs have been used in the Himalayas for longevity and vitality since ancient times, and are believed to have many therapeutic benefits. In skin care, Ashwagandha is anti-bacterial and has strong anti-oxidant properties. Shatavari is a demulcent and moisturing herb, and so is good for dry skin. The combination of Ayurveda’s two primary rejuvenative herbs in the Yogi Yogini range of products will help to maintain the natural lustre and clarity of healthy skin.
