According to ancient Indian beliefs all matter is comprises of 5 basic elements — Panchamahabhutas — which represent the properties of earth (Prithvi) , water (Jala), fire (Tejas), wind (vayu) and space (akash).
Even though the body structure is made up of five elements, but the functional aspect is governed by three biological humours.
Ether and air together makeup Vata.
Fire and water create Pitta.
Water and earth constitute Kapha.
Vata, Pitta and Kapha are distinctly present in every individual but express themselves according to predominance of the Gunas or qualities of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
Satvva is characterised by consciousness and clarity. it is Pure, free from disease and calm. It is superintend for the perception of knowledge.
Rajas– it is the most active & has motion, stimulation and desires; ambitions and fickle-mindedness are a result of these characteristics.
Tamas is characterised by disturbances in perception and activities of the mind; It reflects delusion, false knowledge, laziness, apathy and indolence .
Marichi hence inspired us to create a product that espouses hope & happiness.
