How is Amla Oil made?
To release this 100% organic yet powerful substance, the amla tree fruits are first laid out to dry. Traditionally this is done under the heat of the Indian sun, ensuring no beneficial nutrients are lost in the process. After the fruits have been completely dried, they are soaked in a carrier oil such as coconut or sesame seed oils. These are the most popular carrier oils as they are all natural and encourage the amla fruits to release their own oils into the mixture. Once this has been completed, other powerful ingredients are added to enhance its effectiveness. This is where Mauli Rituals stands ahead of the rest, with the addition of petals, herbs and extracts to fortify the blend and bring the amla oil to life, making our truly unique product.
