Hurraw took a challenge: to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles*
They infuse cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. Creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil mingle with a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.
The Vata Dosha: dry, quick, cold, light, subtle

*Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India.
According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth). These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) are present in everyone.
