As I type this, I am smelling like I just walked out of an excotic spa in India or Bali, the scent immediately fills the rooms and gives me a more calming feeling already as the radio is being played in the background. I have heard of the medicinal properties of Ayuverdic Treatment but have never been exposed to beauty products promoting it so we are totally pleased when we were contacted by Sunita Passi, health coach and founder of Tri-Dosha to review some of her Tri-Dosha Ayuverdic and Holistic Beauty Products.
Before you purchase these products…. you have to ask yourself….what body type are you. To help you in this quest, you are asked to do a short questionnaire (see image below) to find out if you are either a vatta, pitta or kapha.
Here are the three products which we were sent and what I thought about it
Miracle Balm (for dry, cracked skin, cuticles, lips). Out of the three products which was sent to us, this is my most favourite. Made from natural ingredients such as olive oil, almond oil, beewax, cocoa butter, bay leave, black pepper, shea butter, ginger, cinnamon, sandalwood, chamomile, sweet orange, majoram and eucalyptus amongst others. It smells amazing and feels moisturising almost immediately after application. I will be carrying this around with me, especially during this cold and winter months to prevent dry and chapped lips. A 30ml bottle of the miracle balm costs £8.95
I love a good massage and due to time and cost, I can’t always head to the massage parlour as often as I would like. Having a bottle of this Relax Body and Massage Oil (Vata) has actually helped me do the oil massages at home, after a nice long bath. I find that massaging the legs and hands has helped with blood circulation and keeps my body warm and skin hydrated. Some of the ingredients include chamomile, frankincense, ajwain, coconut oil, sesame oil, jasmine, grapeseed oil, cinnamon leave amongst others. There are three oil types, vata oil (which is featured here) is relaxing, the pitta oil is soothing while the kapha oil is energising. This oil again smells amazing and a 100ml bottle costs £23. Here is a link to an article on self-massage.
Replenishing hand/body lotion is made using Neem herbal formulations, lavender, jojoba, rose, geranium, chamomile and other essential oils such as macadamia seed oil, sunflower seed oil, rose hip seed oil, coconut oil, flower oil with 89% of it being naturally derived ingredients. The scent again is so exotic and immediately transports you to a foreign destination, the cream is not oily at all, it needs some rubbing to the skin and there might be a bit of white residue left, but this quickly dissapears in time. A 250ml bottle costs £12.60

Tri-Dosha is from Sanskrit (ancient language of India) and is made up of two words: Tri to mean three and Dosha to mean body type, of which there are three – vata, pitta, kapha. It therefore logically means ‘balance’ and epitomises our whole philosophy.
The concept of Tri-Dosha came to Sunita Passi, Ayurvedic therapist, one wonderful day in India, 2002, whilst she was training and travelling in the South of the sub-continent. Originally from the UK, Sunita had spent the last few years working as a business writer for an international news agency, interviewing high level executives across the world. A holistic health lover through and through, she had experienced yoga of all forms in more than ten different countries as well being massaged in every technique available to her. But there was a deeper motivation. Aware that many of her peers suffered from stress, anxiety, tension and skin allergies, she took it upon herself to discover how she could conserve her own wellbeing as well as help others through Ayurveda.
Sunita first experienced the healing wisdom of Ayurveda at the age of seven upon visiting her grandfather’s clinic in India. After being re-inspired many years later, she decided to re-train in the therapeutic aspects as well going on a personal spiritual journey through the clinics, wellbeing centres and ashrams in the country of her ancestral roots. Thereafter, as a qualified Ayurvedic therapist and lifestyle consultant, she started to formulate her own ethos of health and wellbeing, and over time her focus on individuality as well as the understanding of inner and outer beauty started to really take form. She relocated back to the UK, where she first completed her ITEC in complementary therapy. Since then she has gone on to train with experts in various alternative health modalities and skincare philosophies.
Tri-Dosha evolved from humble beginnings. It was 2005 when the first Tri-Dosha training programme was delivered, and held in a dilapidated venue in north London. But Sunita’s expert teaching quickly gained word-of-mouth appeal and soon wellbeing lovers and five-star spas started knocking on Sunita’s door. Sunita wanted the therapists she taught to deliver the very best therapeutic experience and also pass on holistic care with education. The training programme was therefore developed for students to also be able to facilitate in this way. Whilst the therapists in Sunita’s care were enjoying the benefits of the treatments and their clients were getting healthier, she wanted to improve the system to allow even more people to benefit. The result was the development of the body oils range [now known as the Tri-Dosha Classic Collection] into luxury formulas that consumers could use at home, enabling Tri-Dosha to spread its influence. She also decided that it was important to make people aware of what was in their products, passing the power onto them to make informed decisions and choose natural formulas.
