Our supplements can be taken any time of the day, at your convenience. Many consumers find that doing this as part of the daily breakfast ritual is an easy method. You can take our supplements with or without food.

We do recommend taking the supplements with food for two reasons:

  • Food stimulates the digestive processes, so that the herbal extracts and nutrients are absorbed more efficienty into the body.
  • For some people, taking supplements on an empty stomach can cause nausea or discomfort. Taking them after a meal can prevent this.

You can mix one 4-gram scoop of powder into a glass of warm or cold water, a juice of your choice, or a smoothie.

Our In-Flow PMS & Period Relief Oral Powder and Re-Glow Perimenopause Relief Oral Powder are Listed with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which regulates all medicines within Australia. The TGA is internationally recognised for applying the world’s highest standards of quality, safety and efficacy to complementary medicines. This means that:

  • Every ingredient included has been assessed and approved by the TGA as safe for consumer use;
  • Our doses comply with the safe and effective ranges given in clinical trials and textbooks;
  • Our technical and scientific team holds abundant evidence supporting every claim we make;
  • The products are manufactured in Australia in leading facilities approved and licensed by the TGA  and fully compliant with the Code of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

    However it is important to keep in mind that everyone is different, and no medicine, not even prescription medications, can be guaranteed to work for everyone.

We have worked very hard to avoid using ingredients which could trigger adverse reactions, or cause inflammation or irritation in the body or on the skin.

All our products are free from artificial colours or flavours and from common allergens including gluten, dairy, egg, peanuts, soybeans and animal products. Our oral powders are also free from preservatives. 

Our topical skincare products are free from synthetic or potentially toxic ingredients including silicones, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, petrochemicals, BPA, MIT, triclosan, glycols, PEGs, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, and genetically modified organisms.

We package all our products in dark amber glass which helps protect the ingredients against light.

We strongly recommend that your store them in a cool and preferably dark place, below the temperature of 25ºC.

All our products are clearly marked with an expiry date. However, as there are no preservatives in our oral powders, for best results we suggest using them within 6 months of opening the containers.

Our formulations are designed for daily use in order to support hormonal balance and overall well-being.

We are currently unaware of any harmful interactions between In-Flow PMS & Period Relief and oral contraceptives, IUDs or other medications.

However, if you are using any of these, we do recommend discussing it with your health professional before taking our products.

As with any herbal medicines or supplements, we suggest you speak with your healthcare professional if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before you take either of our supplements.

You are not alone, many women suffer the pain of endometriosis or PCOS.  Our products are designed to relieve menstrual pain and support hormonal balance. However Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) are medical conditions. If you suffer from either of these you should consult a qualified health care professional for advice and support.

Some of the ingredients in our formulas are quite fast-acting, for example calming and relaxing Chamomile and Lemon Balm in In-Flow which can  have effects the same day. Similarly, the Hops in Re-Glow can improve sleep in as little as a few days.

Generally speaking, most herbal and nutritional supplements start to show effects in a week or two, and provide noticeable benefits after a month. According to clinical trials, the full effects are usually evident by the third month. 

However, everyone is a little different so some individuals respond very quickly, and others more slowly. Consistency is key so it is
important to take our supplement daily for optimal results.

As with any herbal medicine, lifestyle factors will also impact your results. ashaya is inspired by the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, a holistic philosophy grounded in the belief that health and wellness is a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit. Each range is designed to be a daily self-care ritual for women, intended to bring a sense of calm and balance.  The application a face oil with a traditional Ayurvedic tool (the Kansa Wand), the relaxing ritual of massaging your skin with a body oil, all help to create more balance and relaxation in your life. 

For optimal results it is also important to eat healthy food  appropriate for your body-type and season, exercise regularly and practice daily meditation or mindfulness techniques.

If you notice an increase in the severity or regularity of any PMS or perimenopausal symptoms, we recommend you contact your healthcare professional.

Every woman will transition through perimenopause at a different age.  Some women start to experience perimenopause in their early 30s, others not until over 50.  The average age of the onset of perimenopause is 45 and the average age of reaching menopause (strictly defined as one year after your very last menstruation) is 52.

For most women perimenopause can be indicated by changes in your cycle and symptoms as listed in the Re-Glow product page, such as hot flushes and night sweats. This is the time when Re-Glow is the appropriate remedy, as it is designed to relieve those symptoms.

If you are still experiencing some symptoms of PMS, the Black Cohosh in Re-Glow can relieve these as well as the common perimenopausal symptoms.

You might wish to check with your health provider for advice on whether you are entering perimenopause.

Yes, our formulas are gentle enough to use around the eye area. However, be careful not to rub any oil into your eye as this may cause some discomfort or irritation.

Using ashaya face oils should help balance, calm your skin and fight breakouts.  It is a common misconception that using oil on our skin will make your skin erupt, which is actually not the case at all! Your body naturally produces oil to moisturise your skin, so by adding a similar substance, your body accepts it and will not react adversely. Many drying and astringent skincare products used to treat acne, just encourage the skin to produce more oil. Alternatively, a face or body oil will help to balance oil production and regulate your skin’s natural oil production. Some oils are comedogenic or clog the skin, which can lead to break outs. We have been very mindful not to include any comedogenic oils in our formulations such as Coconut Oil.

Each oil has a unique blend of natural ingredients, which will yield a different colour and aroma.  These formulas will also have variance in colour and aroma between each batch, pending harvest and growing conditions of the natural ingredients.  Colour and scent differences are completely expected for natural products.

Each of our formulas contain a unique blend of essential oils, specifically chosen for scent but also for their aromatherapy benefits. We ever use synthetic fragrances in our products due to the potential harmful effects on the body and endocrine system.   If you are sensitive to essential oils we suggest doing a patch test on the skin before using our products first.
