Dear Friends,

You might have wondered how we fared through this Covid-19 pandemic. Sad to say, it has not passed us without a scar.

Unfortunately Dr Hari and me split up during that time due to insurmountable differences.

So each one will pursue his own business. He will keep the location and I will keep the name and website Prakruthi Ayurveda.

I wish Dr Hari and his team all the best for their future business.

I will update you on my new location as soon as everything is fixed.

See you soon

Jojo Jacob, Prakruthi Ayurveda

Today we would like to show you a truly divine medicinal preparation we often use in our spa and you can also use easily at home. Have a look:


– named after the God of Ayurveda – Dhanwantari.
The main incrediences – besides water and cows milk – is a plant called Sida cordifolia or in sanskrit: Bala.
Bala means strength and power – that is what the oil can benefit you. Indicated when vata dosha is out of balance, during and after pregnancies, also for the baby, and rather serious

Dhanwantharam Thailam

Dhanwantharam Thailam


like arthritis, back ache, neuralgia, nourishes skin and detoxes. It is one of the most widely used oils here. We use it for all kinds of treatments, not only massages. A great benefit for you would be, if you took some of Dhanwantharam Thailam home with you and apply the oil yourself for a few weeks more. Dhanwantharam Thailam is available at our store from our own brand!

In a later post we will tell you about more varieties of Dhanwantaram Thaliam which are also commonly used for very specific ailments.
And do check with our Dr. Hari first, wether this oil is suitable for your body constitution.

Murivenna – a must-have!



Must definitely take home with you:
MURIVENNA -from the Malayalam language literally meaning “wound -oil”.
As the name suggests you can apply the oil on all kinds of wounds ;-).
It has antiseptic, wound healing properties, stops wound bleeding and is pitta balancing.
Take it home with you for things like:
sprains, pain (think of neck, back and shoulder…), swelling, stiffness, fractures, inflamed joints, bruises, insect bites, Herpes simplex and H. zoster even Akne, burns, old and fresh wounds, ulcers and for your old grandma who might lie in bed all the time and suffer from decubitus – so all in all: a must have!

Ginger Plant from Jojos Home Place

If ginger makes you only think of ginger bread men now at Christmas or Ginger Ale – think again!

Ginger, Zingiber officinale (ഇഞ്ചി – Inji for fresh and ചുക്ക്‌ – chukku for dried -in Malayalam) is a tropical/sub-tropical plant and is called in ancient Ayurvedic texts ‘universal medicine’. The root – rhizome – is used either fresh or dried and powdered.

Fresh and also dry ginger both reduce vata and kapha, which makes it perfect for common winter ailments.  Continue reading
