The ELANVEDA line is inspired by Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old Indian medicine practice focused on natural healing solutions (read more about it here). In keeping with that, ingredients are sourced from around the world, but all of the brand’s products are made in the US and are completely free of preservatives, artificial fragrances, and synthetic materials so no worries about breaking out or having adverse reactions to any of their essential oils (they also make herbal supplements, all of which are free of synthetics and fillers, but I’ve only tried their essential oils). You literally have nothing to lose and so much to gain by not opting for conventional medicine like Advil every time an ache hits. They make essential oil blends for everything from skin health to headaches. The one I’ve been using is their Muscle & Joint. I have the worst knots on the sides of both my legs; they’ve been there for years, and I’ve never properly rolled them out because it’s way too painful every time I try…like I CRY. It’s that painful. What I’ve started doing is taking Yamuna Body Rolling classes at Pure Yoga and putting the essential oil blend on the sensitive area I’m trying to loosen up as a precursor. The tightness is far from cured, but it’s getting better and this is way more pleasant way than the tears and bruising that came with foam rolling! Plus the scent doubles as a mental relaxer.
