PAAVANI Ayurveda Pitta Body Oil (Sensitive Skin)
Comprised mainly of the fire element, people of pitta nature are prone to excess heat in the body, inflammation & sensitivity. Use this botanical blend to calm, soothe & cool your skin.
Sunflower Seed Oil
As its name suggests, sunflower seed oil is extracted from the seeds of sunflowers. A great source of vitamin E, sunflower oil has emollient properties which help the skin to retain its moisture by locking it within its cells. This oil’s wealth of vitamin E & A also provide antioxidants which protect the skin from harmful UV rays & other environmental stressors. Sunflower seed oil is also high in omega-6 fatty acids, which provide anti-inflammatory properties that help to lower skin redness & roughness, while also enhancing the development of new skin cells. Due to its overall cooling nature, Ayurveda considers sunflower oil to be the most balancing oil for pitta-type skin.
First grown in India, gotu kola can be found in the Himalayan Mountain Range. According to Dr. Frawley, a leading Ayurvedic doctor, yogis ingest the plant prior to meditation because of its calming, stabilizing effects on the body & mind. Gotu kola is a brain tonic, as it revitalizes brain cells & is also packed with vitamin C. We include this powerful plant into our infusion for its bitter, cooling & purifying effects on pitta-type skin.
Did you know that coriander is the seed of a cilantro plant? Commonly used in Indian curry & Ayurvedic cooking to promote healthy digestion, coriander, when used both internally & topically, helps maintain a clear complexion by reducing the excess heat brought on by an imbalance in pitta dosha. It also promotes feelings of relaxation thanks to its sweet, herbaceous aroma.

Founders of PAAVANI Ayurveda
The seed of PAAVANI Ayurveda was planted between Leah Klatt & Trudy Collings during their Herbalism Apprenticeship, at the California College of Ayurveda. It was then that the women discovered their common passion for developing skin & body care products that carry on the tradition of Ayurveda. They decided that they wanted to share this with the world. PAAVANI was born a few years later in 2014, when the women opened an office space in Grass Valley, CA, to offer Traditional Ayurvedic Body Therapies.
