Amla Good for Skin and Hair
Amla is great for skin, especially reducing pimples and redness. Ayurveda explains that since both these conditions are often caused by too much heat (pitta) in the body, amla – which naturally reduces inflammation – tends to cool the body and thus prevent the reactions from occurring. An application of amla powder mixed with water can also help to dry up pimples.
This one is straight from our grandmothers and our great-grandmothers too. Amla has always been touted as being incredible for hair – imparting shine and strength, promoting growth, and ridding tresses of gunk and dirt. That’s not all. Amla can also help you get rid of dreaded lice! All you have to do is make a paste of the seeds with a little lemon, apply it on your hair for approximately 30 minutes, then wash it off. Amla also gets rid of dandruff. Forget all those expensive shampoos, just buy a bunch of amlas and your hair-care routine will be set.
