THE AMALAKI STORY
THE AMALAKI STORY
By Jade Ellis
Amalaki, commonly known as Indian Gooseberry or Alma, is considered one of the most rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda. Amalaki is one of the three fruits that are contained in Triphala. Triphala, is a herbal concoction which has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. In Sanskrit, Amalaki means “the sustainer” and has traditionally been prescribed to strengthen the immune system and cool the body.
The main nutrient in Amalaki is Vitamin C. This herb contains an extremely high concentration of this Vitamin, and is one of the highest in the plant kingdom. Twenty times that of an orange! Amalki is also an antioxidant which supports the liver and is known to be beneficial at lowering cholesterol levels. This herb is also known to support healthy levels of stomach acid and improve digestion!
Due to the impressive amount of nutrients and the many benefits of Amalaki, this in turn is very beneficial for the complexion and the hair. This herb can moisturise, cleanse and support immunity of the skin. Amalki also does amazing things for the hair! This herb helps to boost absorption of calcium which creates healthier bones, teeth, nails and hair. Amalaki and its essential fatty acids, strengthens the hair follicles therefore prevents the thinning of hair with age and helps to maintain the youthful hair colour.
The high vitamin C content in Amalaki can help pre-mature greying of the hair and help to retain the colour of your hair. It has also been known to be an effective remedy for dandruff, dry and flaky scalp, as it has the ability to nourish the scalp from within. This herb can stimulate hair growth due to its high iron and carotene content.
Due to the massive array of hair beneficial properties that Amalaki has, Fushi has used this herb as a main ingredient in our new formulated shampoo. Our new ‘Argan and Amalki’ shampoo is hair reviving, Ayuverdic herb infused and enriched which boosts lustre, shine and strengthens the hair. Regularly using Amalaki in your hair can prevent breakage and split ends and encourage the growth of the hair!
- Carrot Oil for Face Thank you for your message. Cold pressed carrot oil protects and preserves the nutrients of the carrots. Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face. Frying grated carrots which involves heat and oil will remove some of those nutrients. Hope this helps.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
