During the years I lived in Pakistan I was introduced to the use of Amla oil for improving hair and scalp health.
Amla (Emblica Officinalis) has been traditionally used in ayurvedic medecine.
It considered to have powerful rejuvenating properties.
The Amla fruit is reputed to have the highest content of vitamin C of any natural occurring substances in nature.
Indian Research shows that 8.75 mg of natural vitamin C complex from Amla is equivalent to 100mg of the most commonly used synthetic vitamin C.
Amla is a medium-sized tree with gray bark and reddish wood which successfully grows in variable agro-climatic and soil conditions. Amla leaves are feathery, linear oblong in shape and smell like lemon. The flowers are greenish yellow in colour and start blooming at the beginning of spring. A mature tree can tolerate both high as well as freezing temperatures. The Amla tree grows in the plains and sub-mountain areas all over India and the Indian subcontinent.
Amla is worshipped as an auspicious fruit from ancient times and considered a symbol of good health.The festival Amala Navami is celebrated at the begining of the winter season in the Hindu calender, when Amla trees are socially propagated among people and cultivated for promotion of good health.
Amla Oil is prepared from dried amla berries. It is one of the world's oldest natural hair conditioners.
Can be used for:
· promoting hair growth
· strengthening hair roots
How to use Amla Oil: amla oil is applied onto the hair after washing (after henna or any other herbal hair treatment). Rub it through the hair and massage it into the scalp to promote blood circulation. It brings forth not only natural shine and soft texture, but rejuvenates dry and damaged hair.
Chemical Constituents: The major chemical constituents of Amla are Phyllemblin, Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Gallic acid, Tannins and Pectin.
