PLEASE NOTE: The ancient Ayurvedic texts spoke highly of pure, classical Manjisthadi Oil. The texts say, “Massaging with this oil helps with acne and moles. It clears the face (evens the skin tone) and eases the appearance of wrinkles. Massaged for seven consecutive nights, it makes the face glow like gold!”
