Unusual DIY Oatmeal scrub - Kama Ayurveda Event in Chennai

Hello Everyone :) 

I was invited at the Kama Ayurveda Event that took place in their store in Phoenix Market city Mall in Chennai where they  hosted a talk on Liver DETOX and AYURVEDA.
We were welcomed with a Mint cooler juice and the Event ended with some delicious snacks. 

The talk was an interactive DIY session which enlightened the our knowledge about Ayurveda and its benefits for the skin, beauty and blissful living. The session was an authentic ayurvedic experience at its best!

Dr. Ashish Kumar started off by speaking on 3 different Doshas that all of us have in our body, the Kapha, vatta & pitta. The Main focus of the Event was Pitta that is related to Liver health & what happens when there is an imbalance. He says Liver is considered as the QUEEN organ of our body. 

Aggravation of Pitta is the main reason for occurrence of  many skin related problems the most common being Acne & pigmentation/discolouration. When there is an imbalance in Pitta it effects our Liver. In extreme situation it causes blood clotting, jaundice, nutrients dont get absorbed in the hemoglobin. 

To help calm down pitta Mint & coriander are very helpful.

It was a total learning experience with insights on useful tips and at the end of the session we all got a chance to get personal consultation from the Doctor on what Dosha category do we fall in and remedies for the same. 

Each of us received a Kama Ayurveda Hamper containing Rose & Jasmine Face care box, samples of Bringadi intensive Hair treatment oil, Lavanya natural plant mask and the DIY scrub that was made live at the store. 

MYTH BUSTED: Drinking Lemon + Honey in hot water on an empty stomach isn't so much of an good idea since honey should never be heated up and lemon can cause production of acids in some. The best thing to do is drink plain luke warm water as it helps clear out toxins.

Have you tried the Oatmeal scrub before? Did it work? If you try this recipe out let me know how it works in the comments down below.


  1. Great DIY..Something I would like to mention about the myth busted:
    Honey is a very complicated product..Honey does wonders only if it is slightly warmed and not heated so honey mixed with warm water works like a n elixir for body..whereas drinking it with hot or cold water has adverse effects...This knowledge to me was imparted by Swami Ramdev Ji ...I hope so you correct it in your post.

    1. I dint meet you either, I met Pavithra though. I came in late. And Pavi left soon after the event got over ie before the consultation, while I was waiting there for the consultation. Were you with her? I also met her later @ lifestyle! While Pavi was taking a video or something I was clicking the pic of the Kama lady doing the demo on a girl (Which now I learnt was you). Since her pic dint come out well I cropped her & uploaded just the demo part. Thats how I clicked the pic.
