Natural Mantra follows Hanuman’s Sanjivani Herb Trail!

#SanjeevaniButi

In the Indian Epic Ramayana, Hanuman is said to have flown a herb Sanjivani all the way from the Himalayas to Lanka, so that the physician Sushena could revive a mortally wounded Lord Lakshman. In fact, ancient herbal and natural medicine such as this has solutions for most of the health problems caused by modern day food habits, stress and environmental pollution. Today, scientists investigating what they believe is the 300 million year old mythical Sanjivani herb, Selaginella Bryopteris, have discovered it can protect living cells from the lethal effects of heat and biological stress, and nurture their growth.

The Crowning Glory of a Woman’s Beauty – Hair Care!

You too can be a Fairy Tale Princess!

BeautifulHair

#HairCare

As a child, you have often read the story of the fairy tale Princess Rapunzel, and how her long, strong, beautiful hair helped her escape from the evil witch to her Prince Charming! Indian art & literature too refers to hair care, just like your childhood fairy tales!

How often do you wish you had such beautiful hair as you get ready for your date or party! But then, the reality is that the mirror mocks you as you struggle to style your dry hair with split ends!

What is healthy hair? Shiny hair is a sign of health because the layer protecting each hair strand – the Cuticle – lies flat and reflects light. It protects the inner layers from heat, sun, chlorine, and other environmental hazards. Good nutrition also shows in the happy bounce in your mop!

You know you need good Hair Care. But have you stopped to think of what damages your hair?

  • Pollution and stress
  • The inner two layers of damaged, dry hair is not protected by the broken surface. So hair breaks and looks dull
  • Sebum, the natural oil on the hair, covers straight hair better than curly hair, which is why straight hair appears shinier
  • Combing wet hair stretches and breaks it
  • Using a heat styling product on wet hair damage it.
  • Use of chemical hair colors, bleaches, etc.

How to Care for Hair?

  • Regular nutritional supplements – have a good, daily diet of vegetables, fruits, cereals and dairy products, that contain these naturally
  • All hair, straight or curly, needs to be treated gently, especially when wet
  • Don’t wash dry hair too often
  • Ayurvedic massages stimulate growth of hair follicles, prevent hair loss, and enhance thick growth
  • Regular haircuts – even if you have long hair, a haircut helps protect hair-ends from splitting and damage
  • Herbal hair oils, shampoos, hennas, combs and many other products have been used from ancient times. And they are the safest and healthiest hair care option today too!

Use organic and natural products for effective hair care. Choose from Natural Mantra’s wide range of carefully curated natural Hair Care here. And look gorgeous!

You are sure to agree with Martin Luther, when he said, ‘The hair is the richest ornament of women!’

#TreatDarkCircles Naturally

What are Dark Circles?

  • These are large darker colored patches under and around the eye area.
  • The thin layer of skin below your eyes show the blood vessels more clearly than anywhere else
  • Dark circles are not a serious skin problem, but they make you look tired, exhausted, unhealthy and older.

What Causes Dark Circles?

There are many reasons. Both men and women of different age groups can have dark circles.

  • Lack of sleep due to late-night parties or examination time cramming
  • College or work related stress
  • Tiredness, working too hard, increases cortisol in the blood, leading to more visible veins
  • Puffy eyes are caused by water retention, which throw dark shadows in certain light
  • Scratching or rubbing your eyes a lot
  • Even sleeping on your stomach as a habit makes the blood tend to show through as dark circles
  • An unhealthy diet – nutritional deficiency, dehydration, anemia
  • Aging – as we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner
  • Some medication also causes blood vessels to dilate, leading to dark circles
  • Melanin produced due to sun exposure
  • Heredity-Your genes can play a huge role here: something known as preorbital hyperpigmentation causes more melanin to be produced by the skin below the eyes, a condition that is more noticeable in darker skinned people.

How to Treat your Dark Circles

The best cure is changing your lifestyle! Get more sleep, hydrate and moisturize well, de-stress.

Star Under-eye Care early to delay their onset. Many natural hydrating ingredients stimulate the skin’s collagen production, keeping the skin firmer, younger and brighter. In fact, using natural and organically produced skin care products prevents and banishes dark circles most effectively.
