Newsletter July 2015
SOLD OUT! DUE TO HIGH DEMAND!
Our bestsellers this month have been our plastic Neti pots and our Auroshika packets of varied incense, perfect for friends and family as gifts and easy to travel with. After the Purification week of our Yoga Wisdom Series in May, our Neti pots have flown off the shelves with people becoming more and more interested in personal cleansing of their body, mind and spirit. The Neti (nasal cleanse) is a simple process where warm saline water is run thoroughly through the nasal passage. Neti can be practiced daily if you are suffering from sinusitis, colds, smell insensitivity, nosebleeding or headaches. Otherwise practice it twice weekly. Neti will clear the head, allows air to flow through the nose without obstruction, and releases emotional tension, thus beneficial for those with anxiety, depression and epilepsy.
If you’re still holding out for a Neti pot, don’t worry… we still have these exquisite ceramic pots available. At $40 and $35 respectively. And if you prefer the more portable plastic neti pot, we have just received a new shipment!
