Determining Your Ayurvedic Wellness Dosha(s):
Add up all your checks. The constitution with the most checks generally indicates your primary constitution (dosha). If you have marked two constitutions nearly equal, you may be a dual dosha: Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha etc. Rarely, all three will be relatively even, in which a Tridoshic or Vata-Pitta-Kapha type results.

Totals: Vata ________ Pitta ________ Kapha ________
My Dosha: ____________________

Abhyanga Oils:
Please use the following oil based on your predominant Ayurvedic wellness dosha. Note – if you have a dual dosha, you may use either oil.

Vata – Sesame (warming)
Pitta – Coconut (cooling)
Kapha – Sunflower (neutral)
