Pitta, the fire element, soars in the Summer months characterised with high or soaring temperatures. If you are naturally a Pitta person then this can exacerbate the problem. The solution is to stay cool, calm and “with it”. Working with the Ayurvedic principle of “like increases like” it is therefore best to stay away from any food or situation that creates more heat. Avoid eating or drinking too much spicy, acidic, fermented food and drinks and alcohol. Stay cool and collected with regular pranayama exercises that help to regulate your body temperature. Massage with cooling oils and try to avoid long journeys that requires you to be sat in a hot car that will easily create feelings like “road rage”. Use rose lotion (we sell them) to keep your face and eyes stress free. This is the best time of the year to plunge into the water – spend time in the sea, the local swimming pool or even your bath tub. It will even help you to just go for a walk barefoot in the grass in a local park ideally next to water i.e. a pond, waterfall, lake, river, etc.
