Abhyanga, an ancient Ayurvedic practice that involves self-massage with warm oil for its holistic benefits for the body and mind. Abhyanga is deeply rooted in Ayurvedic principles, which emphasize the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit. It is believed to balance the doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), enhance circulation of vital energy (prana), and promote overall wellbeing.

Ayurveda views the skin as a reflection of one's inner health, making Abhyanga an essential practice for maintaining skin health and inner balance.



  1. Nourishes the skin: Moisturizes and rejuvenates the skin, promoting a healthy glow and preventing dryness and premature aging.

  2. Improves circulation: Enhanced blood circulation, aiding in the removal of toxins and promoting nutrient delivery to the tissues.

  3. Relieves stress and promotes relaxation: Abhyanga calm the nervous system, reducing stress, anxiety, and promoting deep relaxation.

  4. Enhances immunity: Stimulates lymphatic flow, which supports the body's immune response and helps in detoxification.

  5. Balances doshas: Helps balance the doshas, bringing harmony to the body and mind.




  1. Selecting oil: Choose a high-quality oil suited to your body type and the season. Common choices include sesame oil, coconut oil, and mustard oil. Using herb infused ayurvedic oil blends are further more beneficial.

  2. Warming the oil: Warm the oil gently by placing the container in a bowl. Ensure it's not too hot to avoid burns.

  3. Preparation: Find a quiet, warm space where you can comfortably sit / lie down. Have a towel or old clothes handy to protect your surroundings.

  4. Technique: Begin by massaging the scalp and hair with circular motions, then move to the face, ears, and neck. Massage the limbs with long, gentle strokes, and the joints with circular motions. Finally, massage the abdomen and chest in clockwise circular motions.



  1. Massage gently. Use light to moderate pressure to avoid causing discomfort.

  2. Take your time. Allow yourself at least 10-15 minutes for a thorough session.

  3. Don't rush. Abhyanga is a nurturing practice that requires patience and mindfulness.

  4. Don't use cold oil. Warm oil facilitates absorption and enhances the benefits.

  5. Don't massage over wounds or inflamed areas to prevent aggravation.


Incorporating Abhyanga into your daily Dincharya can be transformational, deeply nourishing and immensely rejuvenating. Start gradually and observe how it benefits your overall wellbeing, skin health, and inner balance.
