What is Immunity?
The ability of an organism to fight infection, disease or invasion of unwanted micro-organisms in the body without triggering allergy or autoimmune diseases is called immunity. Immunity is the natural defense system of the body which plays a crucial role in maintaining optimum health.
Stronger immunity, healthier life. Why?
Immunity is the natural shield of the body. A person with stronger immunity is much less susceptible to common diseases and infections, leading to a healthier life and better life quality.
Ayurveda and Immunity
According to the Ministry of AYUSH, Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda, which is primarily a plant- based science, encourages the use of natural ingredients for preventive care to maintain a healthy life. The classical scriptures of Ayurveda emphasize on uplifting and maintaining immunity to achieve better health and also offers the wisdom of pure herb mixtures that can be helpful to boost immunity and improve respiratory health.
What is ‘Shakti’?
‘Shakti’ is a mixture of 18 pure ayurvedic herbs in a specific percentage supported by Ayurvedic literatures and scientific publications, which will help to boost immunity and overall respiratory health. This preventive self-care can be a life-saving ritual when included in daily life.
Why drink Shakti instead of individual herbs?
While individual herbs are effective to improve immunity, a mixture of 18 immunity boosting herbs is the ultimate solution for strong immunity that can work as an effective shield against infection causing virus and bacteria. However, to get the best benefits of Ayurvedic herb mixtures, it is important to mix pure and fresh herbs in the right percentage. Excess or less of even any one ingredient can reduce the effectiveness of the potion or trigger unwanted side effects. ‘Shakti’ has been subjected to clinical trials to ensure high effectiveness and maximum safety.

You must have already heard or read the term “Aromatherapy”, somewhere, somehow but most probably you have not paid much attention to it in the belief that it is just another type of super hyped herbal thing, new in the market. However, it is time to change your views & to pay full attention to know why the beauty as well as the holistic healing world is going head-over-heels for Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is a form of complementary therapy that has been used for aesthetics & healing in more or less all the advanced ancient cultures. Starting from the Egyptians, Chinese to the ancient Indian civilizations, Aromatherapy has always been a part of the natural healing & rejuvenation processes.
While orthodox history has traced back the first use of Aromatherapy during the ancient Egyptian civilization, some 5300 years back, a well recorded mention of it can be found in the Indian mythological classic Ramayana; the aroma of the “Sanjivani Booti” was used to awaken Lakshmana who was severely injured in the epic battle with Meghnadh, the son of Ravana.
Aromatherapy – what it is
The term “Aromatherapy” literally means the use of aroma or essence as a therapy. It involves the use of aromatic essential oils for aesthetic & therapeutic purposes promoting an overall wellbeing. Aromatherapy can be strictly distinguished from Ayurveda & Herbalism as it involves only the use of essential oils or the “life oils” of aromatic plants extracted from the flowers, leaves, bark & other parts of the plant.
Interestingly, essential oils are 50 to 70 times more potent therapeutically compared to the herbs & plants from which they are extracted. So, when it comes to aromatherapy based cosmetics or therapeutics you are sure to get way better results compared to the herbal or ayurvedic products, crowding the stores.
The small molecular size & high lipid solubility of the essential oils promote quick penetration & absorption of the oil in the body, when applied topically. When inhaled, the vaporized molecules of essential oil travels to the olfactory cells present on the roof of the nose & from there directly to the brain, which then triggers the pituitary gland for specific hormone secretion according to the particular aroma registered. This whole process takes not more than a fraction of second. According to noted aromatherapy researchers the oil or its effects reach every cell in the body within 5 minutes of application or inhalation. Hence, the effects are almost instantaneous.
Medical science has evolved remarkably over time. Now, there is a medicine or treatment for almost all the ailments. However, this development in the field of medical sciences has not really reduced the number of patients suffering from different physical & mental diseases. Moreover, the side effects of even the best-known drugs are not really encouraging. This is the reason the natural holistic treatments are becoming quickly popular across the world.
Aromatherapy as a holistic approach for cure & rejuvenation has always been noted for its high effectiveness. As the therapy uses potent essential oils derived from aromatic plants & herbs it has no negative side effects. It works efficiently & almost instantly on physical as well as psychological level promoting overall wellbeing. In the subtle level, essential oils are also believed to have the power to cleanse the aura or chakras, thus rebalancing the energy system promoting good health.
However, all essential oils are not created the same, & most of the aromatic oils currently available in the market are over processed, de-natured & of perfume quality. Hence, the effectiveness of such oils surely comes under question. Only the most concentrated & purest form of essential oils, extracted through sophisticated processes ensuring no change in their natural complex structure or suppression of their natural effectiveness, delivers the expected results.
