Ayurveda attempts to explain balance in the human condition through mind, body, and spirit. We carry all three, but one tends to be dominant, and when out of balance, problematic. For Vata (spirit) types, who are normally energetic, focused, and with good digestion, being out of balance leads to anxiety, forgetfulness, fatigue, poor circulation and digestion. In simple terms, when out of balance, Vata is stressed and needs to be calmed. Try this unique blend of ginger, cilantro, fenugreek, ashwagandha, ajwain, cumin, long pepper, nigella, black pepper, sea salt, turbinado, cardamom, and clove.

Mix up a sweet chutney of chopped dates, soaked raisins, grated ginger, orange juice and CALM®. Serve over grilled or roasted meats, vegetables, or grains.

Grill or roast sweet potato slices brushed with olive oil or ghee and a generous sprinkle of CALM®.

Sprinkle on hot buttered popcorn or nuts for a good for you treat.
