"Rasāyana, रसायन is a Sanskrit word, with literal meaning: Path (āyana) of essence (rasa). It is a term that in early ayurvedic medicine means the science of macrobiotics or lengthening lifespan, and in later (post 8th-century) works sometimes refers to Indian alchemy." (Wikipedia)
Rasayana is a branch of Ayurvedic medicine, dedicated to rejuvenation and longevity. In a nutshell, Rasayana is anything-herbal, lifestyle, beauty or body care-that promotes and encourages rejuvenation of the body/mind at a deep level. Intrinsic to ancient mind-body systems (such as Ayurveda) that emphasized a path of spiritual liberation within the context of daily life, Rasayanas are making a comback, both in products and as a lifestyle. When you think about it, if you can choose something healthful and healing that also happens to be rejuvenating, over something that's equally nice but doesn't give you that extra 'oomph' of rejuvenation, Rasayana just makes sense. It's a 2 for 1 special every time, and your health, beauty and intrinsic happiness are the benefactors!
We refer to the Herbal Body Oils that we create as Rasayanas, as they are designed with rejuvenation in mind. Lady of the Lotus Botanicals are created in this spirit, supporting your desire for a radiant, youthful mind and body, and the enjoyment of life to accompany this. As the skin is the body's largest organ, and oils can be absorbed into the connective tissue and bloodstream readily via this method, our Rasayana oils work through total application, rather than addressing a symptom or specific location. Essentially, they are tonics, designed to build health, not focused soley on healing or maintaining current health. Adding to your own reservoir of health is a transformational experience, unique to you. Its effects are both subtle and vibrant, and include shifts in awareness and potentials. Whether you're already hip to the natural body oil, Ayurveda or Rasayana scene, or a newbie, know that we steep potent herbs for months, and blend with top notch essential oils. These are the real deal. Enjoy your Rasayana abundance!
