Shakuntal - the ayurvedic Herbo-Mineral body cleanser

The Kapha-dosha is responsible for fluid substances in the body. Fat deposits (Medha dhatu) too can been collected more than usual when Kapha is dominant.

Shakuntal, the ayurvedic Herbo-Mineral body cleanser, is an effective mixture of 23 different herbs in a base of clay naturally rich in minerals. Amongst the finely powdered herbs there is ginger root, sandalwood bark, neem bark, licorice wood, triphala, root of mango ginger, calamus and others which are chosen for their astringent and cleansing action.

The astringent action mobilises cell metabolism and helps to throw out excessive fluid that was maintained in the body through the winter. The clay which is known on the Indian subcontinent as multani matti has a water absorbing capacity and is also know to be antiseptic.

In spring time a dry massage (Udvartan) with Shakuntal is very good for this cleansing process. On smaller portions of the body a mask or wet pack has a deep pore cleansing and skin tightening action. Both are ideally suited for oily skin.

Among other uses the ancient ayurvedic texts suggest a dry massage on a sweating body, for example after a work out. Sweat and dirt gets absorbed by the herbal-clay, the pores get opened and cleaned and the skin is rubbed clear of dry and dead skin particles.

Similarly after an oil massage or as part of a regular body cleansing routine Shakuntal can be used instead of soap. After a good rub down with Shakuntal the skin feels silky smooth and refreshingly clean and has a radiant healthy glow.

The attractiveness of this effect is described in Ashtanga Hridaya –one of ancient text books on Ayurved:

… Praharshe saubhagya mrujaa laaghavaadi gunaanvitam …

"… a body that has so been cleansed feels light, clean and free. The skin glows and feels wonderfully soft and smooth. It imparts in the person a feeling of great happiness and wellbeing and makes him or her particularly open towards enjoying an intimate union with a beloved one."
