Amla ~ Indian Gooseberry (Powder)
Phyllanthus emblica L.
1 ounce

Note that this batch of Organic Amla Powder is darker and grainier than what you may be used to using. This Amla Powder is of higher quality than the lighter, more powdery Amla you may be used to.

Amla has been used historically as a good skin conditioner and toner. A much-beloved staple of traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Amla is considered a cooling pitta herb.

Amla Powder can be made into a paste that helps enhance your hair. Amla adds volume, enhances curls and texture. Amla has also been used to stimulate hair growth and help prevent infections of the scalp. We hear it even helps prevent premature gray!

Use Amla regularly for body and nourishment. Added to henna, it helps tone down the reds and help create a more brown tone. Amla will not dye the hair or skin.

Amla is also fantastic as a facial scrub and toner! We use it a lot in our facial masks and scrubs.

Amla, or Indian gooseberry, is the fruit of a small to medium-sized deciduous tree native to India. The berries are greenish yellow with a fibrous inner texture. Harvested in autumn by hand, they have a sour, bitter, and astringent taste. In Hinduism, the Amla tree is considered sacred to the goddess Lakshmi.
