Based on ancient Ayurvedic principles, this oil works nightly to help ease the appearance of uneven spots, provide a clean and clear look and boost a more youthful look.
The most impressive part?
It makes the face glow as if it was gold!
No - it won't give you the Midas touch and you won't turn golden or anything - but yes, it will give you an instant glow that will be reminiscent of the purity and the irresistible golden sheen of pure gold. A natural, healthy glow comes as an immediate outcome of using this elixir to moisturize your skin.
A celebrated rejuvenative and complexion enhancer, it helps in balancing the skin's temper-tantrums and uneven skin tone.
It is often added to face care products to make the complexion even and tone down the appearance of uneven spots to give a relatively more even-looking complexion.
If your skin reminds you of angry, teenage days, Manjistha is like a soothing breeze of maturity and patience which boosts rather than smothers youthful exuberance!
Ayurveda uses this plant in many formulations that are aimed at balancing Pitta (or the element of heat).
As part of a skin care oil, it has great benefits as a Pitta-pacifier (as a cooling, balancing, soothing herb). It also brings the clearing benefits of citrus for skin that appears clogged up. It also helps provide a lovely luster to give that glowy look!
Mahua longifolia is an Indian tropical tree found largely in the central and north Indian plains and forests. Also known as the Butter Tree or Honey Tree, it’s locally known as the ‘Mahua’ tree and is loved by the locals for the numerous benefits it has!
Its seeds are used to obtain a yellow, butter-like liquid used as fat. This butter melts immediately upon contact with the skin. It is believed that Mahua Butter keeps drying of the skin at bay and may tone down the appearance of wrinkles and restores the skin's radiance. BUT, this formulation does not contain this butter - and this is where it gets interesting!
Note and notice this - this ingredient was also used thousands of years ago.
Interestingly, the part of this tree used in our recipe is neither the flowers nor the leaves or the butter from the seeds - this formulation uses the bark instead! This recipe contains Butter Tree Bark, which, as modern research shows, contains 2 active ingredients particularly good for the skin, enabling rejuvenation and a youthful appearance.
Isn’t it wonderful how thousands of years ago, when there were no ‘lab tests’, this choice of using the bark rather than the other parts of the tree was made keeping in mind its unique properties?!
