Herbal Hair Benefits With Brahmi Recipes

Herbal Hair Benefits With Brahmi Recipes –by L.J. O’Neal, writer.Herbal hair benefits –Brahmi Powder

Brahmi (scientific name: Bacopa monniera) has been long used as a hair tonic to provide nourishment and vitality for radiant hair color. It improves hair care by nourishing the hair roots and scalp, it is known to reduce hair fall and premature baldness, clears dandruff from scalp, thus promoting healthy, thick and lustrous hair with virtually no side effects.

Below the history of the Bacopa monniera plant is reviewed, as well as its use in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. However, our focus is on benefits of the brahmi plant for hair. Therefore, I’m sharing a few brahmi powder recipes for hair to follow.

Brahmi (Bacopa monniera) Botany

Bacopa monniera is a perennial creeping herb that grows 1-2 feet tall that grows in wetlands, muddy shores and other marshy areas. As seen in the image, the leaves are succulent and thick. The plant contains small, white flowers with four or five petals. It can be found in the marsh in India and neighboring countries.

Medicinal Purposes of Brahmi:

Bacopa monniera (BM), a traditional Ayurvedic medicine, used for centuries as a memory enhancing, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antipyretic, sedative and antiepileptic agent. The plant, plant extract and isolated bacosides (the major active principles) have been extensively investigated in several laboratories for their neuropharmacological effects and a number of reports are available confirming their nootropic action. In addition, researchers have evaluated the anti-inflammatory, cardiotonic and other pharmacological effects of BM preparations/extracts. Therefore, in view of the important activities performed by this plant, investigation must be continued in the recently observed actions described in this paper. Moreover, other clinical studies have to be encouraged, also to evidence any side effects and possible interactions between this herbal medicine and synthetic drugs.1

Brahmi Powder Recipes for Hair

Herbal Hair Benefits With Brahmi Recipes –by L.J. O’Neal, writer.
Brahmi Hair Mask

To simply mix with plain or rose water, you can use the directions located on the package of Saba’s Brahmi Powder or try this suggestion.

You’ll need:

Brahmi powder

Amla powder

Virgin coconut oil

Coconut water

  • Mix desired amount of brahmi powder* with amla powder. Add to ⅛ to ¼ cup of melted coconut oil. Add enough coconut water to make a workable paste and mix well. (The paste’s consistency should be that of pudding or yogurt).
  • Apply to dry or damp hair in sections, from root to tip; cover hair with shower cap or plastic wrap.
  • Leave paste on hair for 30-90 minutes.
  • Gently rinse thoroughly out of hair with warm water.
  • If desired, follow up with Lustrous Henna Shampoo Powder to make sure all powder has been removed from hair. Note: other shampoos might interfere with the effectiveness of this mask.

 Brahmi Overnight Herbal Hair Infusion (Rinse)

An herbal hair infusion is basically a natural hair rinse created to stimulate the scalp; condition hair; restore health to damaged hair, or simply to add shine and bring out natural highlights. For this infusion, you’ll need:

Brahmi powder

Amla powder

Tulsi Powder

Neem Powder

Jar, with tight fitting lid

Protective gloves for hands

  • Before bed, in a (wide-mouthed mason jar or similar): Mix desired amount of brahmi powder with amla powder and other powders.
  • Boil water.
  • Pour boiled water over the powder mixture.  Fill jar and then tighten lid.
  • Allow the herbal powder mixture to steep/sit for 8-12 hours to create an infusion with the water. Easy way: let this sit overnight.
  • In the morning, using a fine cheesecloth/strainer: strain the powder out. (If desired, you can add a drop or two of an essential oil for natural fragrance). The remaining liquid is used as an herbal hair rinse –after– shampooing your hair. I suggest using Lustrous Henna Shampoo Powder, then follow up with this herbal hair rinse.
  • When ready to use: Pour herbal hair rinse through hair several times as you catch the liquid in a large bowl. When satisfied, rinse hair with warm water.

Note: The mixing times are only a suggestion. You can mix this hair rinse in the morning and use in the evening too.

*Brahmi powder can also be used in combination with other herbs (amla powder, bhringrai, neem, cassia, henna, tulsi and more. Remember to protect hands from potential staining by wearing protective gloves.

Natural Hair -Bhringraj (Eclipta prostrata) at Saba Botanical –by L.J. O’Neal, writer.Bhringraj is also one of the ingredients that Saba Botanical of USA uses in Imbue™ Natural Conditioner, as well as in Lustrous Henna® 100% natural hair dye. Bhringraj is a real benefit to the hair, from the hair shaft at the root, to the ends. No wonder the hair looks and feels radiant and luxurious with regular use, as this author as well as other customer testimonials have experienced.

Natural Hair Care: Bhringraj (Eclipta prostrata) 

Bhringraj (Eclipta prostrata) is actually a flowering weed known for its benefits in Ayurvedic medicine. It is reported to improve hair growth and color.[1][2] A medical study…showed that petroleum ether extracts of E. prostrata decreased the amount of time it took for hair to begin regrowing and to fully regrow.

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

Traditionally throughout Asian countries, Bhringraj has also been used from the hair shaft on natural hair to the tips, 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 natural hair black or to tattoo the skin.

In fact, the entire plant including the seeds, have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for ages. Today, around the globe, Bhringraj is proven to be effective with numerous benefits both internally and externally, for instance, to improve hair shaft condition.

A Personal Recommendation from L.J. O’Neal

I regularly use both Imbue™ Natural Shampoo and Imbue™ Natural Conditioner. I have thyroid disease and another glandular problem that severely affected my hair growth in the past. Imbue™ Natural Shampoo and Imbue™ Natural Conditioner is easily the best shampoo and conditioner that I’ve ever used. In fact, I regularly use Imbue™ Natural Conditioner as a co-wash (Conditioner-Only Wash. My hair loss has stopped; former thin spots have completely disappeared and my hair growth is increasing! Personally, I highly recommend pure bhringraj powder, as well as these natural hair products for anyone with hair loss or hair growth troubles.

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!”  -Denise

Rose Petal Powder Skin Care –Instructions for Use –by L.J. O’Neal, writer.Rose Petal Powder and Mixed Herbal Face Masks

  • Mix desired amount of Rose Petal Powder with a tablespoon or more of Neem Leaf Powder (OR Orange Peel Powder OR Multani Clay). Add enough yogurt and milk (approximately 50/50); mix to make a smooth paste. Apply to face and neck (avoiding eyes and mouth*). Leave on face (or body) for 15 to 30 minutes or until dry. Gently wash off with rose water.  If you don’t have rose water, then use plain water.

Important note about the fragrance of totally natural Saba’s Rose Petal Powder. It does not contain any fragrance additives. Every rose petal collected and crushed; then stored to retain the natural aroma of the roses harvested to create the powder. Since rose petals are dried before crushing the naturally strong aroma of a live plant is not totally retained. The product is pure, high quality and never enhanced with chemical additives to produce a stronger fragrance. Thus, the flower power remains intact.

Release the flower power of rose petal skin care to your face and body. Your glowing skin will ‘thank you’ for it.

*Should mixture come in contact with eyes and mouth arise, immediately rinse off with water.

Skin Care from the Power of Flowers -Rose Petal Powder  -by L.J. O’Neal, writer.

The Flower Power of the Rose in Skin Care

The rose is considered one of the most beautiful flowers in the world. Since earliest times, roses were important in hand lotions, cosmetics, and perfumes. Natural rose water, rose oil and rose petal has been prized for skin care since ancient times. These therapeutic properties help balance the skin with astringent and anti-bacterial, without stripping moisture from the skin. Now how’s that for flower power?

Flower Power -Rose Botany

Did you know? A rose is a woody perennial of the genus Rosa, within the family Rosaceae. There are over 100 species. They form a group of plants that can be erect shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles (or thorns). Most species are native to Asia, with smaller numbers native to Europe, North America, and northwest Africa.1

The rose is not only a symbol of love and care worldwide, but it is the national flower of the United States and other places throughout the globe.
