Considered the ‘universal medicine’ in Ayurvedic and Chinese traditional healing, ginger is a highly sattvic herb, meaning that it increases harmony and balance within the body and mind. Balancing to vata type digestion, ginger stimulates variable agni and also nourishes vata dosha due to its sweet and heating energetic properties.
The deep, earthy fragrance of cumin powder is a legendary flavor in Indian cooking and this spice is also utilized in Ayurvedic medicine for healing various digestive ailments. Cumin helps to increase digestion and absorption of vital nutrients from food as well as dispel gas thanks to its carminative action.
The sweet, heavy and hydrating properties of licorice bring the perfect balance to the light, dry and mobile qualities which comprise vata dosha. Because of this, we utilize licorice in our Vata Spice Blend to moisturize the mucus membranes of the GI tract, stabilize variable agni and ease dryness in the colon.
Prized in Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to strengthen samana vayu, one of the subdoshas of vata involved in digestion, we love cinnamon for its ability to increase agni and its ability to improve the flow of circulation, not just in the GI tract, but throughout the entire body. Cinnamon is sweet, nourishing and warming and imparts a delicious flavor to our Vata Spice Blend.

A digestive churna is a blend of powdered dipanas, or digestive herbs, mixed with warm water. Ayurveda recommends consuming a digestive churna 30 minutes prior to each meal in order to awaken jatharagni (also known as agni or the digestive fire) & kickstart the process of healthy digestion. Dipanas may also be added to your diet by incorporating them into your cooking or even by simply sprinkling them on top of your meal before eating. Thus, we would like to encourage you to get creative in the kitchen & use our dosha-specific Spice Blends not only as digestive churnas, but also as your go-to all-purpose spice blend to use while preparing your favorite meals & snacks.
