If you prefer a very basic “recipe”, you can always mix any of the powders with plain water (as noted in the previous posts).However, to step your spa treatment up a notch, try using different recipes for different areas of body. Be creative!

 Important Note: The amount of ingredients contained in the above recipes are approximately enough to do smaller areas of the body (enough for face and neck area –except where noted). It’s perfectly okay to add a little more or use a little less of any ingredient. To use for hands and feet, you will need to increase recipe proportionately with the area you want to cover. Please avoid contact with area around the eye, if doing a face mask. For full-body mask, please follow the procedure in the previous posts. Also, do a small patch test to make sure you are not allergic to any ingredients, prior to applying mask to entire area. 


Need more recipes? In our next post, we will include recipes exclusively for face and neck area.

*Rinse off GENTLY with water, except where noted (paraffin wrap, etc.).

Men and Women: Have a Saba Botanical Lustrous Spa Party At Home! (Part 2 of 2)

foot-mask-pedicure-first-saba-botanical Begin with the feet, next the hands and finish with the face
The Foot Mask Pedicure instructions were included in our previous post. Mask color will depend on what you mix in with the powders. If you only use water, then color will range from beige to orange-peach color.

For Hand Mask Manicure

Exfoliate and cleanse: Soak hands in warm Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder/water solution. Pat dry.
Hand-mud-mask-saba-botanical-2 Apply mask: Apply to entire hand up to wrists. After 20-30 minutes, remove mask. Rinse hands, then pat dry. After removing hand mask, if you want to proceed with nail manicure, do so. When totally dry: Gently rub hands and nails in favorite natural skin oil; pat dry. Be gentle!

For Face Mask Facial

Exfoliate and cleanse: Wash face with Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder/water solution. Pat dry gently.
Mud-Mask-saba-botanical Male-mud-face-mask-saba-botanicalApply mask: Select enough mask powder to cover face and neck (if desired). Apply to face and neck, avoiding the delicate area around your eyes.  Leave on until completely dry (around 30 minutes). Go ahead and add cucumber slices to cover eyes, if desired.

Why cucumber slices? They soothe and cool the eyes. They’re also help lighten the skin, thus aid in lightening dark circles under eyes (usually the temporary kind caused from staying up too late, staring at a computer screen or just plain allergies).

Wash mask off with water and soft cloth. Be careful not to scrub the face or neck area while washing off mask. (Excessive scrubbing can cause damage to skin). Lightly pat dry. Be gentle!

Denise-Lustrous-Henna-Face-Body-Mask-Testimonial-Saba-Botanical The Face and Body mask is hands down my favorite product. Many of you know that I’m a spa brat. You can rub me down with just about anything at a spa- mud, seaweed, chocolate, blueberries- I’ve done it all. This is one of the best facial masks I have ever tried. It mixes with water and apply the paste. I left it on for about an hour and then washed off. You can feel it tightening on your face and your face just lifting. It is the cheapest facelift you will ever get!
After I washed it off I noticed an immediate glow and smoothness to my face. My skin seemed to be much more even-shaded and just wonderful. And, since I only used it on my face, I only used needed a small amount  of the package. So… I could get 3-4 facials; that is my idea of home economics!

Men and Women: Have a Saba Botanical Lustrous Spa Party At Home! (Part 1 of 2)

Ready for great fun and some lustrous pampering? Invite a couple of friends over and have your own Saba Botanical Lustrous Spa Party in the privacy of your own home. 

create-spa-atmosphere-saba-botanical Here’s How to Set Up Your Home Spa Party

Invite a few friends over. Small is best: 2-6 guests. If more than that, you might “kill” the fun and guests could become uncomfortable. In your invitations, ask guests to bring a comfy robe, turban and open slippers (optional, but lots of fun). You provide towels, washcloths, dishes, access to bathroom and kitchen sinks, etc.
Guests can mix their own masks, it’s very simple.

men-love-pampering-saba-botanical hand-mask-foot-mask-saba-botanical Appeal to the senses and create a spa-like atmosphere:  

Music: nature sounds like the ocean, trickling brooks, soft classical music or some cool jazz. Lightly scented candles or essential oil simmering in water on stovetop or oil burner are aromatic and heighten the senses. Cocktails, appetizers or other finger foods will also create a fun and memorable experience

Make sure you have enough Lustrous Henna® Face & Body Mask packs available:  Suggestion would be -1 pack per guest if planning on a face mask, hand mask manicure and foot mask pedicure. 

If you want to add a couple of great-smelling Lustrous Henna® Orange Peel Powder packs, that’s an option too. . At only 4.00-4.25 per pack, it’s a quality gift with a small price tag.

Have enough containers for each guest: A small bowl for the facial and manicure and a large basin or dishpan for the foot mask pedicure. If these are in short supply, you can always take turns and alternate treatments –this makes sure that you and your guests are occupied with an activity throughout the party.

Our suggestion: Begin with the feet, next the hands and finish with the face.

For Foot Mask Pedicure
foot-workout-saba-botanical 
Foot workout: Guest takes a golf ball and rubbing it around the foot, concentrating on the arch and sides; or set a smooth river rock on carpeting and walk on the stone for a few minutes. If you have enough smooth rocks, you can also add them to a basin filled with warm Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder/water solution.  Rub your feet back and forth on the stones. All workouts are soothing and massage the feet. 

exfoliate-cleanse-feet-saba-botanical Exfoliate and cleanse: Fill large dishpan, bucket or whatever will fit your tootsies with warm Lustrous Henna® Soapnut (Reetha Fruit) Powder/water solution. Soak feet for several minutes. Using a pumice stone (or similar item), scrub calluses off heels. Rinse, then pat dry.

Apply mask: Apply to entire foot up to ankles. After 15-30 minutes, remove mask by rinsing feet in same container, replaced with clean water. After removing foot mask, if you want to proceed with toenail manicure, do so. Gently rub feet in favorite natural skin oil; pat dry. Be gentle!

In the next post, instructions for the Hand Mask Manicure, Face Mask Manicure, Recipes and other great home spa ideas will be included. Don’t miss it!

The Power of the Flower: Bhringraj for Premature Gray, Dandruff Control, Hair Growth and More.

Eclipta-alba-bhringraj-saba-botanical Bhringraj: The common name is False Daisy. Yerba de tago, Bhagra are a few more. It’s found on the foot hills of Northern India as well as moist places around the globe. It is actually a flowering weed known for its benefits in Ayurvedic medicine. The white flowers are approximately 6-8 mm in diameter, with narrow leaves.

The leaf extract is considered quite beneficial for the hair and has been traditionally used externally on the hair (and scalp) to stop hair loss, promote luxuriant hair growth, stop graying of hair and improve hair color. It’s used as a hair tonic and hair conditioning agent.

bhringraj-saba-botanical Traditionally, Bhringraj has also been used for preventing baldness, anti-dandruff, anti-lice and revitalizing the hair
. Additionally, for centuries, the leaf juice has been boiled with sesame or coconut oil to dye the hair black or to tattoo the skin.

In fact, the entire plant including the seeds, have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for ages. Around the globe, Bhringraj is proven to be effective with numerous benefits both internally and externally.

Men & Women use Saba Botanical natural hair products
Bhringraj is one of the ingredients that Saba Botanical of USA uses
in Imbue™ Nurturing Conditioner, as well as in Lustrous Henna
100% natural hair color dye. No wonder the hair looks and feels radiant and luxurious with regular use as customer testimonials reveal.

The Power of the Flower: Aloe Vera (pt. 2 of 2)

What Aloe Vera ISN’T:

800px-Aloe_vera_flower_inset Nowadays, it seems that every product that wants to appear healthy and beneficial, include the words “Aloe Vera” on its packaging. Even the tissue companies found a way to add it to their labels! Therefore, we need to pause for thought and THINK for a second…do we really need a miniscule drop of Aloe Vera in our tissue?

On a more serious note, when we are searching for pure Aloe Vera or products containing pure Aloe Vera, we really need to be careful and read the ingredient labels. We might end up with something that may even cause us harm. One well-known company claims to sell 100% Aloe Vera Gel.  After reading the ingredient label, you might be shocked to see that it is not 100% Aloe Vera Gel at all, but : (company) Aloe Vera, 100% Gel. Does this make a difference? You bet it does! This product is a gel that contains Aloe Vera and many harmful chemical additives. One ingredient was even banned in Europe for being a known carcinogen!

healthy-hair-growth-for-men-women-saba-botanical A “Recipe” that Promotes Healthy Hair Growth
Aloe Vera contains many healthy hair benefits especially when combined with wheat germ oil and almond oil, added to Bhringraj. As we shared in the previous post, this “recipe” is found in every bottle of Imbue® Natural Conditioner by Saba Botanicals of USA.

It is an herbal formula containing plant extracts from Bhringraj combined with, Aloe Vera, Wheat germ oil and Almond oil. This mixture will only help to revitalize and nourish your hair and scalp.

Personal Experience

Personally, I have thyroid disease, along with PCOS -two conditions known to cause thinning hair, and my hair loves Imbue® Natural Conditioner. I use it many times just by itself as a co-wash or I follow up my Imbue® Natural Shampoo with it. I use Lustrous Henna® to cover my grays and condition my hair too.  My hair always feels softer and I’ve found that my hair is actually thicker. My husband even commented the same.

If you suffer hair fall or hair thinning, then perhaps you’ll achieve similar results in your own experience using this healthy hair “recipe”.


================================================================

I just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the Lustrous henna.  I’ve been using it for about 2 years now, and I will never go back to the chemical dyes, for many reasons.

Getting my long hair dyed in a salon cost me well over $100. When I tried to be more economical and do it myself, I would still have to buy two bottles of dye, not to mention processing agents, and special conditioners, and then color safe shampoos and conditioners for after.  I have used color safe products and non-color safe products with the Lustrous Henna, and there is no difference, it doesn’t really fade. And at $6.99 per pack (I only need 1 pack for my hair), the price can’t be beat.

Also, even when I went to a salon, my hair would fade to an ugly, mustardy brown after only 2 weeks to a month.  With Lustrous Henna, I dye my hair about once every 3 months, and even when it fades, it fades to a very nice, dark shade (I use the black and the mahogany).  In fact, the only reason I know it’s faded at all is because my grays start showing.  Which brings me to another point.  My grays are interspersed throughout my hair, and the henna dyes them a lighter shade than the rest of my hair, which just ends up looking like really pretty highlights. And the fact that it does absolutely NO damage to my hair is the icing on the cake.


I love this stuff, please never stop selling it!  I will never go back to chemical dyes ever again.

The Power of the Flower: Aloe Vera (pt. 1 of 2)

The Aloe Vera Plant IS:

Aloe Vera is a flowering plant. It has been called “the lily of the desert” and “the plant of immortality”. Its medicinal and healing properties have been known for over 4000 years. It was used by ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Chinese civilizations. Cleopatra used it to purify her skin. Alexander the Great used it for his soldiers’ wounds.
Aloe_vera_saba-botanical
Aloe Vera is a stemless or very short-stemmed succulent plant with yellow flowers,
growing to 24–39 in tall. The small serrated leaves are thick and fleshy, green to grey-green, with some varieties showing white flecks on the upper and lower stem surfaces. The beautiful yellow flowers are produced in summer on a spike up to 35 in tall. Aloe Vera grows in arid climates and is widely distributed in Africa, India and other arid areas.

As a topical medicinal treatment, Aloe Vera extracts have antibacterial and antifungal properties that may help in the treatment of skin infections and inhibit the growth of fungi. Additionally, Aloe Vera is a natural moisturizer that soothes the skin, eliminating the risk of flaky scalp (dandruff) and flaky skin in harsh and dry weather.

Aloe Vera is an excellent treatment for hair loss because the plant itself closely matches our own body’s biochemistry, containing many of the same vitamins and minerals that make up our own bodies. Without question, Aloe Vera provides benefits for hair fall or hair loss. It strengthens, adds a healthy radiance and shine to hair.

I tried your Lustrous Henna (Soft) Black and the sample of your Imbue
shampoo. I’m so pleased with the results of the Lustrous (Soft) Black and
your shampoo is very gentle to the hair.  I will be placing an order
over your website in the next week or 2 but wanted to send my feedback
as I’d like you to keep me posted with any promotional events and any
information you have.

I read your story about the commercial hair dyes & can certainly relate

Dandruff Treatment and Remedy That Also Beautifies Your Hair

Prevent itchy scalp. Saba Botanical of USA Problem

Flaky dead skin that appears on the scalp, eyebrows or around the hairline, ears or nose; range from small and white to large, greasy and yellow.

Treatment and Remedy*

Follow a healthy diet that includes flax seed oil; daily scalp massage increases blood circulation; weekly oil treatment to scalp, washing off in shower after 10-15 minutes will help avoid excessive drying out of skin; frequent  mild shampoos that include any or all of the following Ayurvedic herbs:

herbs can cure. www.sababotanical.com Shikakai: A pod that’s considered a superior cleanser for “lustrous long hair” and has been reported as “promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff”. Because of these benefits, this pod was named “Shikakai” which translated as, “fruit for hair”.

Soapnut: Indian name Reetha fruit is also called Soapnut, as it contains natural soap. Beside excellent cleansing properties, it is known to keep hair and skin soft.

Amla: A wonderful cleansing agent for both the skin and hair. It imparts luster to hair and protects from dandruff, also helps prevent premature graying. Amla stimulates growth of hair on the scalp, and strengthens the hair roots.

Fenugreek: Seeds contain essential oil that contains 40 different valuable compounds. People used to soak fenugreek seeds overnight, and in the morning grind them into fine paste and apply them to the scalp for half hour for scalp treatment and removal of dandruff. The hair was then washed with Soapnut solution. The same paste was applied on the face at night before going to bed and then washed with warm water in the morning. This was known to prevent one from getting pimples, dryness and early appearance of wrinkles. It improved complexion and make one look younger.

* If the scaling from dandruff is greasy and yellow and does not respond to shampooing, etc. then it may be time to call your doctor; you may have seborrhea dermatitis and need more aggressive treatment.

Syed,

Thanks so much for sending me the second pack of soft black henna. I tried a patch of hair with it and it did work much better than the first batch that I received. The black color had a tint of blue in it and I was concerned that it would color my hair blue instead of darkening my existing red. So I tried the dark brown that I had previously used again. This time I applied it to damp hair, covered my head with a plastic cap and applied heat. The color difference was incredible! My dark hair got darker but my white covered with a much darker, richer red color. I am thrilled with the results and will continue to experiment with the color to get the red a bit more brown.

My hair feels so soft and truly looks wonderful! I was wondering how long the color lasts? I can’t thank you enough for your patience with me. I was getting discouraged and beginning to give up. I have searched for about 8 years for a natural product that works and didn’t think one existed. You have no idea how excited I am to have found your product.
Thanks so very much!
Sincerely, Cindy A.
Westerly, R.I.
