I still remember the 3 Rs that I was taught back in school almost two decades ago! So I Reduce, Reuse and Recycle as best I can. It's easy to add in more Rs nowadays like Refuse, Repurpose and Rethink, and this way it's much easier to go back to basics or our roots!

Recently as part of our research for new partnerships, we thought of emphasizing Wellness, it has been at the core of our offerings always. Now is the time to make it more relatable and tie it down by products and practices that have been in use for centuries.

We all know that TURMERIC is inextricably woven into the fabric of Indian culture through cultural ceremonies, rituals, and daily life. It was recommended in the Ayurvedic texts for its protective, preventive, therapeutic, balancing, healing, and cosmetic properties. Modern science acknowledges its immunity-boosting, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-anxiety, soothing, stimulating anti-oxidant properties.

Bellisima's HairSpa Oil and Onion Remedy Hair Oil is 100% pure and natural and extracted high-quality coconut without applying any additional heat thus retaining all its naturals benefits. It is nonsticky and light on the hair. A range of herbs (Jatamansi, Bhringraj, Gunja, Liquorice, Ratanjot, Amla, Aloe vera, Methi) is infused in cold-pressed coconut oil and prepared in a traditional ayurvedic method called kShir pak method (5to 6 hours of slow cooking on low flame). In this method, we use herbs in different forms like fresh juices, dry kashayam and wet kalpas( herbs paste), and COW MILK. This process completely transforms the nature of base oils as extract present in juices; its potency and nutrients are absorbed by the oil.

So revisiting our roots or a little walk down the memory lane can help us tremendously in these times wherein going back to basics can really help the environment and make our consumption lead to a positive impact.
