Ayurveda and Stress

Ojas is an Ayurvedic word that refers to our life energy. Translated, it means "vigor." Stress greatly reduces ojas, which then weakens the immune system. When ojas is low, disease can follow.

To replenish ojas, follow the routine for your mind/body type. Some foods, such as milk and ghee, are especially good for increasing ojas. Meditation is the best thing you can to alleviate stress and thereby increase ojas.

  • Vata Tea is calming and soothes the nerves. It is delicious with a little bit of brown sugar.
  • If you're feeling stressed because you are angry, Pitta Tea will help "cool you off."
  • Blissful Joy also comes in an aroma oil. Keep a little bit in an aroma pot on your desk at work when you're feeling stressed out.
