General: Also called amla, emblic, or Indian gooseberry, amalaki is considered a sacred plant in Hindu tradition. The sour, sweet, bitter fruit is pickled, candied or eaten raw. And the bark, leaves, flowers, seeds, and roots are all widely used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Skin Benefits: Amalaki is a potent rejuvenative that nourishes the tissues and gently removes toxins. It has a cooling, anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Amlaki contains 20-30 times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges, and is a powerful antioxidant. We use amalaki in our Double Action Ayurverdic Cleansing Grains and Hairgasm Sea Salt Texturizing Mist.
