Peace of mind
According to the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, a fifteenth-century yoga treatise, “Where vāta is in motion, the mind is in motion. Where vāta is calm, the mind is stilled.”
Mano Shanti infusion is recommended for people who cogitate a lot due to the many decisions they have to make, which can go as far as a state of indecision and anxiety. This synergy of herbs lowers vāta doṣa, the cause of this excess movement.
For peace of mind
- Our freshness envelope, despite resembling plastic, is made from cellulose therefore compostable.
- Our teabags and string are also compostable.
- Our tag is made from recyclable PEFC™ paper.
Note: we sell the majority of our infusions only in tea bags and not in bulk. The difference in density of the ingredients would make the heavier ones fall to the bottom of the container. Thus, the mixture would lose its homogeneity and the medicinal proportions would not be preserved.
Based on the principles of Ayurvedic herbalism or “Dravya Guṇa”, Mano Shanti is a synergy of plants that balances Vāta Dosha.
And, according to the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, a Yoga treatise of the XVth century:
“Where Vāta is in motion, the Mind is in motion. Where Vāta is still, it makes the Mind still.”
In Sanskrit: « चले वाते चलं चित्तं निश्चले निश्चलं भवेत् »
« Chalé Vaaté, Chalam Chittam, Nischalé, Nischalam Bhavét »

Use a tea bag of Mano Shanti for 200 ml of boiling water.

Drink one to four cups a day.
When the drink becomes lukewarm, you may add a pinch of Himalayan salt and squeeze some lemon juice into it.
To bring peace to your mind, the best tool is your own breathing.
Have a regular breathing pattern, at a constant pace.
Slow breathing soothes, but it is especially the regularity of breathing that will bring peace to your mind.
Thus quick breathing while jogging will calm your mind because your breathing pattern is regular.
Similarly the Kapalabhati breathing technique, soothes your mind if performed at a constant rate, like a metronome.
Remember: regularity brings stability, stability brings safety, and when feeling safe your mind is at peace.
