In this release article, Dr. Shivani Gupta shares insights into a holistic daily self-care routine, rooted in Ayurvedic principles:


  1. Wash Your Face: Start your day by splashing your face and eyes with cold water to invigorate your skin and awaken your senses. Follow with a gentle pat dry and a refreshing spritz of rosewater.

  2. Daily Intention: Set the tone for your day by expressing gratitude and setting an intention. Take a moment of reflection before rushing into the day’s activities.

  3. Ayurvedic Self-Care Ritual: Learn to listen to your body and move towards holistic well-being. Dr. Gupta guides you through a 12-step ritual to reconnect with your body’s intelligence and restore balance.

  4. Oil Pulling: Practice oil pulling with coconut or sesame oil to promote dental and gum health.

  5. Elimination: Prioritize morning elimination to support optimal health. Incorporate self-massage and deep breathing to stimulate the body’s natural rhythms.

  6. Tongue Scraping: Enhance daily detoxification by using a tongue scraper to remove plaque and bacteria from the tongue.

  7. Neti: Explore the benefits of neti kriya for sinus and respiratory health.

  8. Abhyanga or Oleation: Nourish your skin with natural oils like sesame, coconut, or almond before showering.

  9. Dry Skin Brushing: Stimulate lymphatic drainage and exfoliate the skin with gentle dry brushing.

  10. Bath or Shower: Transform your daily cleansing routine into a mindful practice of releasing emotional and mental impurities.

  11. Breakfast: Enjoy a mindful breakfast accompanied by hot herbal tea to support digestion.

  12. Meditation: Cultivate stillness and awareness through meditation or movement practices like yoga or tai chi.


Dr. Gupta emphasizes the importance of consistency and listening to your body’s needs. Rather than overwhelming yourself with all 12 rituals, start gradually and build a routine that resonates with you.


“Trust me, you are better off being consistent with four or five rituals for a whole 21 days than forcing all 12 for a couple of days and losing interest in the whole thing. Relax, start slow, and, most importantly, listen to your body and start hearing the wisdom no expert can teach you, as it only lies within you.”
