Third and final article about crystals for your dosha. This has been a playful series finding crystals to soothe each dosha- whether Vata, Pitta or Kapha.
These three constitutions are used in the healing system of Ayurveda to help a person find balance in their mind-body and within their lifestyle.
Pitta types are driven, confident, quick to anger, are warm-bodied, tend to sweat a lot, super active, super strong digestive system and prone to skin irritations. If out of balance their mind-body overheats hence why they tend to have sore acne and other inflammations in the body.
Most people are a combination of two doshas out of the three, I recommend taking an online questionaire to have a basic idea of what you are. This can also help you discover what foods to avoid, best sleep patterns and good activities to help you find balance.
What Is Pitta Dosha?
Pitta means “that which cooks,” and its associated elements are Fire and Water (picture lava flow or hot oil in a pan). This is the energy of metabolism, digestion, and transformation.
The qualities of Pitta are oily, sharp, hot, light, moving, liquid, and acidic and individuals who are Pitta dominant will display physical and mental characteristics that also reflect these qualities.
When in balance, Pitta dosha is exuberant and courageous, has sharp mental perception, takes the lead, and radiates with warmth and a strong willpower. Their body is often warm and muscular with oily skin and penetrating eyes.
