The word 'aroma', gives us a feel-good sensation because aroma suggests odors that are pleasant and appealing to the senses. We all know about micro-encapsulation technology that embeds tiny capsules into fabrics. We thought this was a new concept but using the fabrics and garments to deliver health solutions is actually a very olden concept called 'Ayurvastra'. Ayurvastra is a branch of Ayurveda, "ayur" in Sanskrit for health, "veda" means wisdom, and "vastra" is clothing. Ayurvedic clothing is made from organic fabric that has been permeated with special herbs and oils through micro-encapsulation technology that embeds tiny capsules into clothing fabrics. When these tiny micro-capsules come into contact with body heat and wear, they slowly release their chemical payloads which can contain fragrances or skincare lotions or other chemicals which might have some topical beauty or medicinal value to the skin that comes into contact with the micro-encapsulated fabric. Ayurvastra clothing is believed to help restore balance within the body's systems and strengthen the immune system. Ayurvastra cloth is used by Ayurveda clinics in the treatment of a broad range of diseases such as diabetes, skin infections, high blood pressure, asthma and even some forms of cancers. Ayurvastra cloth is completely free of synthetic chemicals, toxic irritants; it's also a way to avoid global warming. This paper mainly will deal with concept of ayurvastra, a case study, the basics procedure for ayurvastra fabric manufacturing, some medicinal ingredients (herbs) for ayurvastra clothing.
