Origins of Ayurvedic Moon Milk

Ayurveda, an ancient medical system from India, dates back at least 5,000 years and relies on the principles of harmonious living, centered around nurturing and balancing the mind, body, and spirit.


Ayurveda embraces five natural elements – ether, air, fire, water, and earth – that combine into three fundamental energies, which they call doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. According to Ayurvedic tradition, maintaining balance among these doshas is crucial to overall health and well-being.

Nurturing a healthy sleep pattern is one of Ayurveda's essential aspects, given its crucial role in repairing the body and maintaining a balance in physiological functions. Herein lies the origin of Ayurvedic moon milk – a warm, soothing beverage designed to be consumed at night to promote rest and relaxation.

Ayurvedic moon milk is derived from the age-old practice of consuming warm milk at bedtime. According to ancient Ayurvedic tradition, warm milk calms the nervous system, lulls the mind, and induces deep sleep. Combining the therapeutic power of warm milk with other Ayurvedic herbs and spices creates the modern iteration of moon milk.

The Magical Ingredients of Our Ayurvedic Pink Moon Milk Recipe

Our modern Ayurvedic pink moon milk recipe includes various herbs, spices, and adaptogens to enhance its soothing properties. 

Milk: Cow's milk, or plant-based alternatives like almond or coconut milk (we used almond milk below), form the nourishing base for moon milk. As per Ayurveda, warm milk pacifies the Vata and Pitta doshas, promoting healthy sleep and nourishing the tissues.

Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is an ancient adaptogenic Ayurvedic herb that is thought to reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate insomnia, and improve overall vitality.

Cinnamon: This aromatic spice not only makes our pink moon milk more fragrant while also helping to alleviate gastrointestinal discomfort and enhance relaxation.

Honey: A spoonful of honey (or your preferred sweetener) adds a touch of sweetness to our Ayurvedic pink moon milk, making it a sweet and satisfying after dinner treat.

Staying true to Ayurveda's holistic approach, these ingredients work in harmony to create a comforting beverage conducive to relaxation, healing, and nourishment.


Creating New Rituals 

Ayurvedic moon milk pays homage to an ancient healing tradition, honoring the wisdom of our ancestors and connecting us with nature's bounty. Its comforting, soothing, and sleep-promoting properties make it an ideal companion for unwinding and embracing the tranquility of the night.

As you integrate Ayurvedic moon milk into your bedtime routine, like a gentle embrace, feel it guide you to peaceful slumber and a renewed sense of well-being.
