My massage lady tells me that my body needs less oil now, than before. Seems to be a shift from my dry Vata skin issue... That may be because I have started taking a spoonful of olive oil first thing in the morning. It makes me feel cool-headed during the rest of the day... I don't think this would be good for the kapha types, who are oily and lethargic (cool) any case... so don't follow all my tips, esp ayurvedic ones, till u find out which dosha (ayurvedic type) u are ... Btw olive oil also lowers blood pressure, so if u have low bp (some women get that before periods, u want to be careful how u time it).... So read up or ask about before plunging into these tips, okie?!!
