Facial oils are everywhere and it's really hard to compare them all and figure out which one is right for you.
Your skin has specific needs. And they probably change with the seasons (oilier in summer, drier in winter, anyone?). So why shouldn't your Facial Oil be tailored to you and to the season?
That's exactly why we made our #1 bestselling Ayurvedic Facial Oils. After years of studying cosmetic chemistry and Ayurvedic herbalism, I've perfected these formulas. They're the best trio since Destiny's Child.
Each offers nourishing yet lightweight moisture for soft, glowing, never greasy skin. We've got a formula for each of the three Ayurvedic skin types:
✨ The Vata Oil banishes dry skin, brightens dark spots, and softens fine lines
✨ The Pitta Oil soothes inflammation, heals and prevents acne, and calms sensitivity
✨ The Kapha Oil de-puffs, reduces clogged pores, and regulates oil production
These oils are also an excellent moisturizer to complement your lymphatic drainage routine (dry brushing, manual lymphatic massage, Gua Sha, or gemstone rolling).

Each of the 3 formulas has special properties and benefits:
Our Vata formula banishes dry and dull skin, smooths fine lines & wrinkles, fades hyperpigmentation, promotes microcirculation, and calms reactivity.
Our Pitta formula reduces inflammation, treats and prevents acne, regulates oils, soothes redness and irritation, and calms reactivity.
Our Kapha formula stimulates circulation, treats and prevents cystic acne, reduces puffiness, combats clogged pores, and regulates oils.
To use as moisturizer: Before Toner and/or Hydrating Gel have absorbed, apply 4-8 drops in palm, rub hands together, then apply to face and neck.
To use with dry brushing: Apply 4-8 drops to face and neck before you dry brush.
To use with manual lymphatic drainage, Gua Sha, or gemstone rollers: Apply 8+ drops to face and neck to lubricate the skin for your hands and/or the tool you're using.

This is my second full size Ayurvedic face oil and I love it! I have oily combo skin and this works wonderful. I usually use it at night or if it's winter and really dry out. It leaves my skin smooth, hydrated without being oily at all. The best part is that it doesn't create any breakouts, I'd say it actually helps prevent them!
So far soo amazing! Love the way my skin feels
I’ve been using the Vata for about 6 months and have truly seen a difference in the fine lines...subtle but I wouldn’t want otherwise! And I love the feel on my face and the lovely scent! It will remain part of my self care regimen!
I ordered the kapha oil for spring and it has done wonders for my skin these last 3 weeks! I cannot wait to try the others!
I love this oil. I’ve tried other oils on my face that were too heavy and clogged my pores. This oil is perfect, it soaks into my skin quickly. I never feel oily.
