Sometimes a product testimonial can get me at hello, and that was the case when I read the following testimonial for Indu Lotion:
“LOVE LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your lotion. I’m running low though and my students are totally hooked. Nectar of the Moon is the crack of yoga. It is Yoga Crack. Please send another shipment ASAP as my students will go into withdrawal. I simply cannot face savasana adjustments without it. It’s the only reason they come. Can you also make me a boyfriend out of it?” -Megan Leigh, Owner Chichesteryoga.com
Wow, the crack of yoga! That is a pretty high compliment. Yoga already gives me a beautiful high, but if the stuff in that blue bottle is all it’s cracked up to be (ha ha, pun intended), then I figured I had better try it out.
If you are from Ohio, you probably have seen Indu Lotion or had it rubbed on you during savasana, as Marni Task, the woman who makes the lotion, is an awesome yogini from Ohio! Woot-woot! I love promoting my local yogini sisters. Many of the studios here in northeast Ohio carry Indu lotion, but not to worry if you don’t live in the Buckeye State. I am going to deal Indu crack, I mean lotion, to you no matter where you live!
So, why is Indu so amazing? Well, for starters, it is an all-natural lotion made with essential oils of bergamot, lavender, and geranium. The aromatherapy is really doing triple time in that the geranium helps to ease anxiety and tension; the lavender helps promote clear thinking, calms, and soothes the skin, and is also good for circulation; while the bergamot helps to fight fatigue and stress. Oh, I forgot to mention that geranium can also stimulate feelings of sensuality!
The coolest part about the lotion is that when Marni mixes all the essential oils together, she blesses the potion with the mantra om namah shivaya. Knowing Marni, she is not just saying this, but singing the lovely mantra, as she is part of a Kirtan group called Enchanted Hearts and has the voice and smile of an angel.
So, how exactly does Indu make you feel? Well, if you are lucky enough to have it rubbed on your shoulders and neck during savasana, you will notice your shoulders starting to melt and your body relaxing. A deep calm may come over you, and you may just find that you are able to fully relax into savasana, letting go fully and quieting the mind. You will experience the beautiful aroma, one that is not too overpowering but just right, and you will want the aroma to linger well after class.
If you are a yoga teacher and have been looking for a lotion to use during savasana, I highly recommend Indu. Make sure you always ask your students first before you apply lotion; you never know who might have allergies, etc.
New Indu Lotion Candles
If you already love Indu Lotion, you have got to try their new lotion candles. These candles melt into a nourishing blend of butters and oils to create a rich, warm emollient body oil and moisturizer that can be massaged and absorbed into your skin within minutes. You can use them for an intensive treatment for hands, elbows, feet, or any dry skin places. Enjoy a warm massage oil, a soothing cream for manicures and pedicures, or a decadent treat after a bath. The warm oil can even be used for relief from the pain of arthritic hands in cold weather. The aromatherapeutic scent of Indu is subtle to ensure the proper dilution of essential oils for skin and a sensual experience that will send you straight to samadhi!
