Hibiscus…a godsend to reduce hair fall &dandruff



Lord Ganesha’s favourite flower-the lovely red hibiscus or the shoe flower as it is popularly called has unique medicinal properties in its flower and leaves & is truly a godsend for reducing both hair fall and dandruff, and conditioning our crowning glory beautifully .

In the Indian traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda,  the humble white hibiscus and red hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis), have always been  considered to have medicinal properties from the age old times.  As a hair treatment, the flowers and dried leaves are boiled in oil along with other spices like fenugreek to make a medicated nourishing hair oil. The leaves and flowers are ground into a fine paste with a little water, and the resulting lathery paste is used as a natural shampoo plus  conditioner.
Read more at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus

The leaves and flowers are good for  promoting the growth and dark colour of hair (Nadkarni 1954, Kurup et al 1979) and reducing dandruff and hair loss.
Home made Hibiscus Hair oil :The flowers and dried leaves are boiled in coconut or gingelly oil with fenugreek seeds and then applied to the hair. About 10 flowers or a handful of dried leaves can be used for about 150-200 ml of oil.
Natural Hibiscus Shampoo:  Natural dyes are also prepared from extracts of the flower. The leaves and flowers are mucilaginous and condition the hair . They can be ground with soaked fenugreek seeds and applied to the hair for a cooling effect and to reduce dandruff and hairfall.

So make the most of this lovely God’s gift… available at your very doorstep 🙂

Aloe Vera -Nature’s Miracle Plant!!!!


Aloevera-Nature’s Miracle plant that has been used for millions  and million of years ….Why????Simply Because it works!!!

Aloevera looks like  a cactus,but actually isn’t-It is scientifically known as Aloe Barbadensis,and actually belongs to the Lily family like the onion and garlic which are also known for their antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties.Inside the green leaf is a transparent jelly like substance or gel which can be easily be scraped out.Early users of Aloevera  gel(1500 BC) discovered that when it was applied to a wound or burn,it healed faster&left no scars-an invaluable aid in a world where even minor wounds could prove fatal.
Tips on using aloevera gel directly from the plant:
Cut an aloevera leaf towards the base of the plant,wash well and keep immersed in water overnight to remove any impurities like aloin.The water may turn yellow or pink overnight.Discard it,wash the leaf again,and peel off the green surface.Scrape and Use only the transparent gel inside.Apply to the skin for 15-20 mins,and then wash off.

Although aloe is ninety-nine percent water, it also has more than 200 active nutrients and elements that support good health. Today there are over two hundred scientific research papers outlining the therapeutic benefits of aloe vera juice gel. Studies confirm that aloe vera gel heals the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties, burn healing capabilities and ability to decrease the effects of scars and wound.Hence Aloevera gel  is an effective home remedy for a wide variety of skin concerns,and allergy to aloevera is extremely rare.
