The skin is a reflection of one’s health. Those who are healthy and active tend to have better skin than the rest. It is clearly a sign that says that internal health is doing well and fine when you have clear and glowing skin. With the new and modern age creeping up, people tend to pay lesser attention to their inner health and this takes a toll on the skin’s well-being.
Thankfully ayurvedic potions such as Kumkumadi oil and many other herbal extracts have been proven by science and nature to have the right effect on our skin so as to regain its health and glow back.
Ayurveda recommends the use of natural ingredients that are found on mother earth to help enrich lives by either its ingestion or its application as a medicine. Thankfully, the whole world has now started to see and reap the benefits of Ayurveda because of its wide and far-reaching fame and popularity.
What is Kumkumadi Oil?
Kumkumadi oil is a magical potion blended from various ingredients that have incredible benefits for the human skin. The most important and key ingredient to this mixture is Kumkumadi extracts or saffron flower extracts. Saffron is a rare and unique plant that grows on high altitudes and in cold atmospheres.
Saffron strands are found on the flowers in their pollen as they are extracted and used in herbal medication. Saffron strands from these plants are incredibly rare and therefore they are also very expensive and especially sought after. Kumkumadi oil is extracted from the saffron strands when they are mixed with appropriate carrier oils to form a concentrated solution with all its goodness.
Kumkumadi oil is revered to be one of the most incredible oils to be used on the face for amazing skin clarity, glow, and a brighter complexion. It has been used by women for generations in India as the ideal skincare and facial oil. This oil is mixed with many other skincare oils to formulate the magical elixir which is the Kumkumadi Oil that we get in the market these days.
