Affirmation: I am whole and complete.
Aligned with morning (awakening) and evening (relaxing) energy as well as our skin and body’s varying needs at those times, Aika have created Dosha-specific products and holistic rituals to enrich their rejuvenating benefits. The delicate bonding of organic ingredients also help to restore true wellness as a loving twice-daily practice. These Ayurvedic-inspired rituals encourage us to connect within and come home to ourselves.
The Kapha Ayuressence is the second step in the Kapha Retreat Ritual and when combined with the Deep Cleanser and Elixir, its effects are amplified. As our natural metabolic functions are inwardly focused for overnight support and rejuvenation, the Kapha Collection works together to create a deep and intuitive sense of wellbeing based on our individual needs.
AS A DAILY COMPRESS
Use at night after cleansing and removing all makeup.
Add 5-6 drops of the Kapha Ayuressence to a bowl of warm water (½ litre or 1 pint is sufficient) and stir to dissolve. If your skin is sensitised, inflamed, sunburned, irritated or reactive, then make the water temperature lukewarm to cool.

a) Lay your cloth over your decolletage and press lightly.
b) Press your cloth gently into your neck mindfully avoiding direct/firm pressure on the tender throat area.
c) Gently hold and cup your hands over the cloth along the jawline and press firmly.
d) Then press over your cheeks.
e) Finally press over your eyes and forehead area.

AS A WEEKLY STEAM BATH
Fill a large bowl with steaming water making sure the bowl is sitting securely on a table.
Add 5-6 drops of the Kapha Ayuressence to this.
