In the ayurvedic tradition, therapeutic oil massage is said to balance the three bodily humors, or doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha. According to Vasant Lad, the founder of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, these doshas create a “unique, biochemical lab” in every individual’s body.

Since the combination of vata, pitta, and kapha are endless, each person has a constitution that is “as unique as his fingerprint.” In most of us, however, one dosha is primary, another is secondary, and the third is least prominent.

Ayurveda recommends choosing massage oils according to dominant dosha: 

Vata Nourishing and moisturising - for dry skin
Pitta - Soothing and calming - for sensitive or overheated skin
Kapha - Stimulating and invigorating - for oily skin
