NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dosha Pops, Inc. announced today the launch of their ecommerce website that sells unique, tea-based lollipops that appeal to those who want to find balance in their lives through Ayurveda and satisfy their sweet tooth.
Ayurveda is a form of holistic healing that has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years. Incorporating all aspects of life - including diet, exercise, sleeping, and eating times - Ayurveda aims to keep the body well-balanced. According to Ayurvedic beliefs, each person also has a unique pattern of energies like a fingerprint called "doshas," of which, there are three distinct types: vata, pitta, and kapha. While multiple doshic energies may be present within a given person, usually one is more dominant than the others. Ayurvedic practitioners believe disease can occur when these energies are out of balance.
With her recently discovered love of Ayurvedic living and an already entrenched passion for cooking, Peggy Andrews, Founder & CEO of Dosha Pops, worked for two years to find the perfect balance of natural ingredients and great taste for when she wanted to snack on something sweet.
Andrews stated, "Through the process of sharing my healthier candy indulgence with friends and colleagues, I soon realized that I might be onto something - I could potentially make this a social enterprise. Through the use of herb mixtures, plants, teas, common oils, and spices, Ayurveda's key mission is simple: to bring the dosha back into balance. This, too, is the mission of Dosha Pops but with the addition of confection and a portion of the proceeds donated to charities that address human well-being."
Dosha Pops will be sold in the following assorted flavor six-packs and individual-flavor six-packs:
- Chai Me Up: chai spiced tulsi and coconut blend
- Head Over Hibiscus: hibiscus
- Inner Glow: lemon, turmeric, and ginger blend
- Mytea Pomegranate: pomegranate and rooibos blend
- Velvet Rope: chicory
- Wishful Pinking: pink rose
Designed to support Ayurvedic doshas, Dosha Pops has created lollipops with a fusion of natural ingredients that work together to balance doshic energies and contribute to overall health, while tasting delectably sweet.
"In an age where living a healthy lifestyle might mean abstaining from certain types of foods, we strive to offer healthful candies so that people don't feel they need to totally abstain from sweets and can still feel good about eating them when they do satisfy their cravings," stated Andrews.
