east meets west

We draw our inspiration from Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of wellness, which emphasizes living in rhythm with the seasons and one's own unique nature. Ayurveda is a holistic lifestyle that uses daily practices to manage the three Ayurvedic doshas — Pitta, Vata, and Kapha — which, according to the ancient Ayurvedic texts, are the main energies that govern us and the natural world. In Ayurveda, knowing the state of your doshas is the key. Interested in learning more about your dosha?

crafted with inspiration

OJAS STUDIO recipes are inspired by each dosha, and contain no artificial sweeteners. While snacking is not often encouraged in Ayurveda, these bites offer a way to pause and infuse a moment of Ayurvedic inspiration into the unavoidable reality of our busy, modern lives. When savored with a pause, deep breath, and a smile, these bites remind us to be conscious of when, what, and how we put food into our bodies.

OJAS STUDIO is food and lifestyle brand dedicated to translating ancient rituals for the modern world. Our recipes are inspired by the wisdom of Ayurveda. “OJAS” (pronounced “oh-djas”) refers to the Sanskrit word for “vigor” or “vitality.” While we promote wellness, we are not licensed health care or medical professionals. We do not provide medical advice, professional diagnosis, opinions, treatments or similar services.

Ayurveda = Ayur + Veda, or “Life” + “Knowledge.”. Ayurveda originally was recorded in the Vedas (ancient texts) thousands of years ago in India, and is a comprehensive system emphasizing daily practices to address the needs of the whole body. Ayurveda has been adopted and adapted over time and for modern observers in the US is sometimes described as a philosophical system for approaching one’s overall well-being. We are not experts in Ayurveda but we have consulted with them and drew inspiration from Ayurvedic principles in designing our products.

We met with active Ayurveda enthusiasts and were awed by the love and wonder of Ayurveda. We understand that Ayurveda’s ancient practices aren’t always accessible in today’s fast-paced world, so we created OJAS STUDIO to bring Ayurvedic inspiration into modern lives re-imagined with date & grains you can love.

Generally speaking, in Ayurveda philosophy Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are the three “doshas”, or the main energies of the body that define our individual makeup. Vata dosha is composed of ether and air, Pitta of fire and water, and Kapha of water and earth. In Ayurveda, understanding one’s dosha is considered key to observing its principles.

Our mindfully crafted date & grain bites are inspired by each dosha.

Our date & grain bites contain delicious spices, dates and grains. We’ve crafted them with each dosha in mind.

There are a variety of resources available both online and in print to help you learn more about doshas, including our brief quiz here.  Please note this quiz cannot provide a definitive answer on your dosha, nor is it a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding health or medical conditions.

We worked with Ayurvedic consultants to ensure the ingredients for each date & grain bite are inspired by each specific dosha.

We suggest you not leave the product exposed to air for a prolonged time - that is why we made the large pouches resealable! Ideally the product is not exposed to the air for more than 5 hours. If exposed to air for a longer or prolonged period, the bites will become stale like any other baked products.
