One Sweet Idea
Dosha Pops is the love child of my passion for food and my latest lifestyle change to achieve physical and spiritual balance through Ayurveda. The inspiration came from years of striving for a greater balance in my life. As a lawyer, I worked long hours and lived a life of sedentary excess. My lifestyle eventually led to bouts of acid reflux. Through working with a life coach and exploring holistic natural healthcare, I decided to embark on an Ayurvedic lifestyle. One of the primary components of my Ayurvedic lifestyle is daily consumption of herbal teas. Still wanting to indulge in the sweeter side of life, I started crafting these artisanal lollipops with Ayurvedic herbs, spices and teas. Realizing that others want a healthier candy indulgence too, I created Dosha Pops.
The name Dosha Pops came to me as soon as I thought of creating Ayurvedic herbal tea lollipops. Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old science of life, which focuses on protecting health, prolonging life and eliminating disease. Ayurveda asserts that each individual contains a unique combination of doshas or energies. According to Ayurveda, the 5 elements of nature (space, air, fire, water and earth) combine in the body as these 3 doshas known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When any of these doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas. Balance is achieved through proper diet, lifestyle and herbal remedies. My lollipops are made of herbal teas, spices and herbs that are meant to balance your dosha. Hence the name Dosha Pops was born.
