Indigo with Turmeric
महारसा ऐवम हरिद्रा
Indigofera tinctoria & Curcuma Longa
Ayursatwa’s verdant green is crafted from turmeric and indigo, making this dye super-charged with the healing properties of both these medicinal plants. Both turmeric and indigo are used in Ayurveda and traditional medicine for their anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Newborns and infants are often swaddled in fabric that has been dyed and treated with indigo or turmeric.
This vibrant shade of green is associated with the Anahata or Heart Chakra located at the center of the chest. The energy imparted from wearing green can help clear energy channels that are blocked by grief and repressed trauma. It opens pathways to experience trust and love without the fear of abandonment or betrayal.
In Jyotish, the ancient Vedic study of the planets and the stars, green is associated with Mercury, the planet of communication and the significator of the body’s nervous system and the intellect.
From a Jyotish perspective, wearing green will enhance the planetary significations of Mercury and improve communication, support a quick and sharp mind, and balance the flow of energy through the nervous system.
AyurSatwa’s turmeric + indigo natural dyed threads and handwoven textiles are highly compatible for use in products that are designed for supporting meditation practices, immune system support, and for opening the heart.
