ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘Kavita’s knowledge of Ayurveda, the technicality of ingredients, and her philosophic wisdom of, for example, what it means to “age” and the difference between routines and rituals are blended beautifully in this book. As someone largely unfamiliar with Ayurveda but who has worked in the beauty industry, [I found] the book to be an incredible encyclopaedic compilation of beauty information, learnings accumulated over the years which Kavita graciously and gracefully shares with her readers, with so much love and passion’—Morgan Tan, ex-president, Shiseido, Hong Kong
‘Kavita is one of the most knowledgeable holistic beauty and wellness persons that I know. Her love for Ayurvedic beauty and her recipes and rituals draw from ancient wisdom, yet they are explained in such a simple and relatable way. This is what I absolutely love about this book’—Deepika Mehta, yoga guru
