Ayurvedic benefits


Based on the principles of Ayurvedic herbalism or “Dravya Guṇa“, Kala Pushpa is a synergy of plants that balances the “black flowers”: a lessened feminine cycle which has lost its rhythm and may be troublesome. This concoction controls Vāta by regulating it in its Apāna form. Apāna is that “downward” force which according to Ayurveda controls menstruation, defecation, urination etc. This herbal tea balances Kapha dosha and promotes the expulsion of Pitta in its Mala (waste) form.
