The Kumkum Yogastra mat is dyed in the herbs Vetiver, Triphala, and Red sandalwood.

Vetiver is a cooling and stress relieving herb. In Ayurveda, vetiver is used to cure stress-related illnesses and insomnia. Inhaling vetiver can improve your concentration during practice.
Triphala purifies the blood and improves digestion. Breathing in triphala during yoga practice assists in natural internal cleansing. Triphalas antiseptic properties help keep the mat clean and hygienic.
In Ayurveda, red sandalwood is used to improve and rejuvenate skin. This is especially beneficial to the skin that comes in contact with the matÂ during yoga.
