1. Bhringraj for Hair loss, Grey hair & Hair Regrowth:
The best way to use bhringraj for hair is by making a hair oil with it. This bhringraj oil has amazing hair benefits. It prevents hair fall, premature greying, strengthens the hair roots, conditions the hair well, prevents split ends, stimulates hair growth, prevents baldness, premature greying and alopecia - in short everything that is needed for a healthy hair. Nowadays bhringraj oil is marketed everywhere, but you can make your own pure bhringraj oil at home very easily. I prefer to use homemade coconut oil that is not refined for making this oil and I would strongly suggest that you do the same for best results. You can identify this plant easily with it's flowers and it is also used extensively in home remedies. This oil can be made in two ways, the first method is made by grinding the bhringraj leaves without water and making it into small rounds and then sun drying it till crisp. Then the rounds are added to coconut oil in a glass jar and placed in hot sunlight till the color of the oil changes. This method takes around 3 to 4 days for the rounds to dry and for the coconut oil to get heated up. This method is best done during hot summer months. I did the second method, which is made by directly heating the paste in coconut oil. This oil has a beautiful green color and a unique pleasant smell. When I made this oil, the whole house was smelling of this oil. To use this oil, massage it well into the scalp before having your hair wash regularly and let it soak for at least 30 minutes. This oil stores well for up to 3 months at room temperature.
2. Bhringraj for Baldness:
A simple hair pack made with bhringraj leaves will prevent baldness. To make the hair pack, take the fresh leaves, grind it to a paste along with little yogurt and apply it to the scalp. Wait for 15 minutes before washing it off. The fresh leaves can be substituted with dried powder too. Bhringraj extracts have been proven for it's effectiveness in promoting new hair growth. This hair pack is supposed to be used at least weekly once, for best results. For this hair pack, both varieties of bhringraj plant can be used.
3. Bhringraj for Liver:
Bhringraj is a liver tonic. Like Keelanelli, bhringraj is also used widely for treating liver disorders. We are increasingly eating out nowadays, when compared to our elders. Regularly eating junk food or food that has been mass produced that emphasis only on taste, plays havoc with our liver. Last week, I was talking to a person, who cooks regularly for marriages about adding colors to food. He said that not alone he, but almost all the cooks adds synthetic colors to almost all the chutneys, sweets, even certain gravies to get the appealing bright color. No wonder, each time we have food outside, the next day we feel so sluggish and tired. Adding bhringraj to our diet keeps our liver healthy. You can simply steam the finely cut and cleaned bhringraj leaves in a steamer and consume. If you don't like it bland, have it in the way mentioned above. It is best had along with dhal or as a stuffing for bread, roti, etc. It can also be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for palak| spinach. Try to use bhringraj at least weekly once in the diet.
