HANDMADE COWLS

greencowlAccording to Ayurvedic practitioner and Doctor of Oriental Medicine Sharada Hall, protecting the neck from the cold weather is important to staying well through the winter season.

Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that external pathogens are carried on the wind and that they enter our bodies at the back of our necks. The acupuncture points that are located at the base of our skull and along the spine down our neck and upper back are all used to “expel wind” – in other words, to treat a cold. So protecting that area when you’re out in the wind is actually a very effective measure to take to prevent catching a cold! – How To Avoid Catching a Wind, by Dr. Sharada Hall

These Organic Cotton Cowls are handmade in Brooklyn, NY by Suzanne at ‘Peacock and Pineapples’.
