why it works
Sandalwood, once a common sight at social and religious rituals in India, Egypt and Rome, became so highly valued that it was regulated by the Indian government so that only certain farms, like the UMA estate, can grow it. Botanicals like lavender and clary sage have also been prized since ancient times across cultures, so much so that they are now calming mainstays of modern aromatherapy. The roots of these ingredients run deep, revered not only for their youth-bringing benefits to the skin but also for their ability to ground and relax, empowering us to truly understand this ancient wisdom: that true life is lived by locating calm amidst the chaos of dailiness.
Imagine escaping to an Ayurvedic retreat along the lush, picturesque banks of the Ganges—a sacred symbol of meditation and prayer. There, you can experience the healing powers of ancient Ayurvedic wisdom through Vedic therapies and massages that incorporate the soothing, grounding botanicals you find in this oil, all of which have been deeply revered for centuries. The roots of our ingredients run deep, revered not only for their youth-bringing benefits to the skin but also for their ability to ground and relax, empowering us to truly understand this ancient wisdom: that true life is lived by locating calm amidst the chaos of daili-ness.
how to use
Warm a small amount of balm into hands and massage into the body using deliberate, circular strokes. Pay attention to areas that need extra healing, such as elbows, hands, and feet. Allow a few minutes for the balm to absorb before getting dressed. Use as often as desired, ideally after a shower or bath.

HOW IT SMELLS
Sweet, Woody, Spicy — A soulful blend that feels meditative, grounding and sensual all at once. Lifting, fragrant ingredients like sandalwood, cedarwood and cardamom soothe the soul, promoting overall clarity, confidence and calm.
HOW IT FEELS
Rich, gliding, buttery — Richer than oil and more lightweight than a cream, this body balm feels substantive but not heavy. It flows seamlessly across the skin, turning parched, coarse skin soft and vibrant with hydration.
Their balm is very easy to apply and has a really nice texture that feels smooth and silky on my skin. It absorbed quickly and didn't leave any greasy or sticky residue. I noticed that my skin felt much softer and more hydrated after using it for just a few days.
