Our Ancient Herbal Remedies
Our Founder's late grandfather was a well-respected village doctor. His approach to herbal medicine was to use nature to treat natural ailments — which involves a process where he walks into the forest to gather the herbs for his remedies. His herbal remedies were respected by the lives he touched — especially his granddaughter, who has fond memories of using his remedies throughout her childhood.
Here are a couple of her favorites:
Our Scalp & Roots Revival Treatment
Contains three organic ingredients that have historically been used for medicinal purposes:
- Bergamot: valued for centuries and still used to this day as a folk remedy to treat dandruff and inflammation. At present, it is now known that bergamot possesses anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.1-4
- Turmeric: a key ingredient all across Asia for culinary as well as medicinal purposes to treat swelling and infections. Turmeric contains antibacterial properties as well as curcumin, a powerful antioxidant that suppresses our body's inflammatory response triggered by oxidative stress (caused by: stress, ageing & the environment).5, 6
- Mint: used to cool, refresh and soothe aches and bacterial infections. We now know it contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties as well as menthol, a vasoactive compound which promotes blood flow.7-10
Once harmonised together in one blend, these three ingredients gently re-balances the scalp environment back to health to make conditions optimal for hair growth. They detoxify the causes of hair fall (e.g. inflammation originating from microbes, pollution or irritants),11-12 cleanse residue that clogs hair roots and promotes blood flow to hair roots so they receive the nourishment they need to grow strong and healthy.
Our Nourishing Hair Mask
Promotes and strengthens hair from the inside-out for soft, silky and healthy hair. In addition to bergamot, it contains:
- Coconut: whose beneficial boasted about by the thick-haired natives of tropical and coastal regions of the world! We now know that coconut oil's low molecular weight allows it to penetrate deeper into hair follicles for more effective nourishment.13-16
- Sesame: familiar throughout the world, sesame seed oil’s nourishment comes from its vitamins, minerals, antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties.11, 17, 18
