Podcast: Finding Balance Using Ayurvedic Rituals & Botanicals with Uma Oils' Founder Shrankhla Holecek

Episode 1-3.PNG

Ayurveda changed my life and helped me better understand myself as a unique person with a specific constitution. Before I learned about Ayurveda I would take issues that I had with my mind and body negatively rather than understand that they need to be acknowledged and balanced accordingly. I’m so happy to dive into this week’s episode with you on this exact topic with someone I truly respect in the Ayurveda world. Uma Oils’ founder, Shrankhla Holecek, has a unique family history steeped in Ayurvedic medicine. For generations her family served as the Ayurvedic practitioners to Indian Royalty, even farming and growing the botanicals that they used in their healing. The family farm and estate is still functioning today creating some of the world’s most prestigious, rare and potent organic botanical and essential oils. They’ve been a leading supplier for companies like Tom Ford and Estee Lauder and now have moved into creating their own line of gorgeous beauty and wellness oils.

Their formulas are top secret and have over 800 years of wisdom packed into them. It’s truly an incredible experience to use these oils and I can tell you from personal use they are well worth the investment! Incredibly potent, effective, luxurious and pure, these oils are part of a larger holistic ritual that helps promote well-being. We touch on some of these beautiful rituals, her family’s legacy, the science behind botanicals and understanding your dosha. Enjoy and stay tuned for a giveaway!
