Find out why Licorice has been a staple skincare ingredient for thousands of years:

1. Licorice is a powerful
age-old  
AYURVEDIC REMEDY:

In the ancient language of Sanskrit, Licorice is known as Yashtimadhu, which means 'sweet stick'. The Greek physician Dioscorides gave this warming root the Latin Greek name Glycyrrhiza. 'Glukos' means 'sweet' and 'riza' means 'root'.

As you can probably tell by now, Licorice is prized for its sweet flavor and warming properties. Who doesn't love sweet things, right? Especially when they're 50 times sweeter than sugar! Even just the thought of it brings back memories of sitting by the fire at Christmas time, sipping warming herbal tea with...what's that...a hint of Licorice?
But you never thought about using it on your skin, did you? Now, it's starting to sound more and more like a good idea. 

Ayurvedic medicine considers Licorice a Rasayana. In English, that means a 'Rejuvenating Tonic', which says it all! 

But what can it do for your skin?
Well, as it turns out, a lot.

2.  Licorice is a soothing  SKINCARE-FAVORITE:

Thought Licorice was just for soothing sore throats? Think again. Its potent powers go far beyond that - cooling and calming irritated skin with its rejuvenating and hydrating properties. Inflammation is the root of most irritation, and Licorice sets the balance right. It’s perfect for anyone with cranky or unpredictable skin!

In Ayurvedic medicine, Licorice is used for its balancing effect. When there's too much of one type of energy in the body – the three Ayurvedic energies are Vata, Kapha and Pitta – diseases can set in. Licorice brings the levels back to where they need to be for perfect harmony.  

3.  Licorice improves and brightens your COMPLEXION: 

This beautiful herb helps any and every skin type. Its hydrating effect – which comes in handy with a sore throat – also nourishes dry, problem-ridden skin. Licorice is also a time-honored Varnya, a herb that improves the appearance of your skin. According to ancient Ayurvedic texts, its oily 'Snigdha' properties work on a deeper level, giving you a natural, healthy glow and a radiant complexion. Studies have shown Licorice to be a safe, natural illuminator.

4.  Licorice helps OTHER HERBS do their magic: 

Used as an ingredient in many health remedies, Licorice enhances the power of other potent herbs - the concept of Synergistic effect that Ayurveda is known to honor.
Add Licorice into your skincare routine to get the most out of it, and you won't be sorry!  

5.   Licorice transforms your skincare routine into a MEDITATIVE EXPERIENCE: 

You’re all familiar with the sweet and spicy taste of Licorice. It’s warming, comforting, and calming. Adding it to your skincare routine will make the whole experience more pleasurable. With its comforting aroma calming your overworked senses, get ready to say 'Om' as you enjoy your beauty ritual more than ever.

FUN FACT:

Varnya herbs are also known for enhancing beauty. And how do you channel that beauty-boosting power?
Through incorporating Varnya herbs into your skincare regimen. The best way to do this is by using Ayurvedic oils.
These oils contain beautiful blends of botanical herbs that bring the mind, body, and soul back to balance.

Why are Ayurvedic oils so good for your skin?  

It's all in the preparation. Ayurvedic oils are created from rich and nourishing base oils, like Sesame oil. Potent herbs are decocted to extract their healing properties and blended with a base oil. The base oil is already so beneficial for your skin, so the combination creates the ultimate skin-loving product. It's a timely process that takes love and dedication; in fact, the word for oil in Sanskrit is sneha, meaning love.

Your skin will love you for using Ayurvedic oils because:

  • They target multiple skin complaints at the same time. That is because they contain a combination of so many
          different wholesome herbs. They are truly magical elixirs. Your cosmetics bag will no longer be full to the brim. Get
          ready for a simplified skincare routine that works. 
  • They're 100% natural and safe. You'll be free from the harmful effects of chemicals and impurities found in most
          mainstream skincare products. And the inherent powers of herbs are much more effective than any artificial
          ingredient out there. There's a reason they've been used for over 5,000 years. 
  • They're versatile. You can use Ayurvedic oils for facial cleansing, to moisturize, or to achieve a glowy look. And
          because these supremely potent oils are surprisingly affordable, not only will your skin thank you, but your wallet
          will too.

LICORICE-RICH FACE OILS

Skincare for the mind, body, and soul

Ayurvedic practitioners have been using Licorice for over 5,000 years. They saw its benefits on the body and knew the same would apply to the skin. And its powers have no end. Studies show its versatile effects - soothing, smoothing and brightening at the same time.The list is endless.

We've all walked down the beauty aisle at the supermarket and wondered, "does any of this actually work?"
"Is there really a magical elixir?" Well, there is! But it's not at the supermarket.

Maybe you've used products in the past that irritated your skin. Or perhaps you’ve bought a million different products for a million different skin problems. What you need to do is get to the root of the problem. Stop using anything unnatural and let your skin breathe! Your skin's gone through a lot, and now it's time for some TLC (Tender Loving Care).

Chemicals are unnecessary components of skincare. You can find everything you need in Nature. But most skincare brands haven't caught on to this, and continue to create products that are harmful to you and the environment.

That's why The Ayurveda Experience created iYURA, a line of 100% natural Ayurvedic oils made to beautify your skin and purify your skincare routine. Make way for purer, simpler living and a happy, healthier You as a result.

LICORICE is, of course, a vital ingredient in many of our iYURA oils.

You'll notice an immediate difference from your usual skincare regimen. Your skin will feel rejuvenated, healthier, and be visibly brighter in complexion and tone. Not to mention any skin complaints you have will be cooled and soothed as the oil hydrates and nourishes your skin.

"Three drops of Kesaradi Oil and the effect is instant: my skin starts glowing in hues of gold and feels immediately silky smooth and hydrated. The glow stays for hours! I love the nutty scent and feeling when I apply it. It's truly magical. I can easily feel dry even with the best of moisturizers. I have mature skin (I am 57) but this Ayurvedic oil is magical! Thank you!"

-Ursula B.

"I love this oil. From the day I started using it, I saw a difference. I am 51 years old and I have always had good skin, but I could tell it was changing and nothing I was using was working. This face oil made an immediate difference. My skin is soft... I look forward to using it every morning. It feels good and smells beautiful. I don't really even need to wear makeup when I use Kesarandi oil. I'm so glad I found this and won't be without it. I recommend it highly"

 - Rosalie R. 

"These day and night oils from Ayurveda changed my life. All my life I have had acne scars and uneven skin tone. I spent a lot of money, tried a lot of products, derma fillers and even went under the knife! These oils have done more for me than anything I have ever used in my life. I am 61 and I finally am able to say I am happy with the skin I'm in. I owe it all to the Ayurvedic Experience skincare! I love both the day and night oils, but this one is my favorite! 

- Lynn L.

LOVE this oil!
I am 69 years old and people tell me I look much younger but because my skin was looking dull and dry I started using Manjish Glow Elixir. Since using it my skin has transformed into a youthful glowy complexion! I don’t even need to wear makeup!”

How to Use iYURA Oils

Follow these steps for a truly fulfilling, luxurious Experience. For everyday use:

  • Cleanse your face with your favorite natural Ayurvedic cleanser. Pat your face with a soft towel until it's just a little
        damp. 
  • Place 3- 4 drops of the oil in your palm and massage it gently, caressingly onto your face and neck. Be sure to enjoy
         this fulfilling ritual and experience an unwinding in your daily stress!
  • You can adjust the amount of oil depending on your skin's moisturization needs. 

Give yourself a Kansa Massage:

  • Follow the steps above. Then, using our Kansa Personal Wand,
        move in circles on the forehead. The shape of the wand targets
        the contours of the face and areas that hold tension.
  • Then, move the wand in circular motions on the left side of your
         face.
  • When you finish, move onto the right.
  • You can massage any area that feels tense, like the space in
         between your eyebrows, for example. We hold a lot of tension
         here as we use our eyebrows for expression. Massage will
         deepen the effects of the oil on your skin.
  • Add more oil as needed.

    This ritual will become your most-looked-forward-to time of the
    day! A sensual, gratifying 'Me Time' that your overworked body absolutely craves for!


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Love this kansa wand. Get home from busy day at work, take off my make-up, get out my oils and wand and massage my face for about 5 mins. Most relaxing time of my day. People are already seeing the difference in my skin and so am I. Will not use anything else now. I have given away all my other facials dreams. Thank you for introducing these products into my life."
