Triphala Oil

Size:4 oz

Himalayan Institute Triphala Oil is a totally unique ancient natural product made to meet today's stringent quality standards that combines the rejuvenating properties of Sesame oil & Triphala.  For thousands of years in India Sesame oil has been recognized as a matchless rejuvenating massage oil as it is rich in antioxidants and deeply nourishing.  Triphala is a powerful tri-doshic herb combination of three fruits prized by classical Ayurveda for its ability to simultaneously cleanse and rejuvenate.  Starting with fresh cold pressed unrefined Sesame oil, Himalayan Triphala Oil is produced by gently heating the oil to a low temp, adding the Triphala and processing the two together using special equipment that extracts the essence of the Triphala directly into the oil through high pressure.

Himalayan Triphala Oil (HTO): Contains a superior quality food grade Sesame Oil (unrefined cold pressed from fresh, raw, sesame seed grown and processed without chemicals) specially treated and purified with Triphala Fruit Extract.

Sesame Oil is one of the premier health promoting oils used in classical Ayurveda and has been used for thousands of years internally as well as externally. Ayurvedic practitioners have traditionally used medicated or treated oils topically to assist with conditions such as, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis while also being treasured as a hair tonic. Sesame oil is rich in vitamins A, B and E as well as iron, calcium, magnesium, and copper (which is considered to be effective in treating the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis). The oil contains linoleic acid, alpha linoleic acid as well as lecithin which is especially noted to benefit brain cells and the nerve tissue. Due to this lecithin content it is believed to nourish the mind and the nerves and regular use is believed help to alleviate and support the body in dealing with depression and fatigue, while giving a sense of feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Triphala is a three fruit combination revered in classical Ayurveda with an almost mystical intrigue because of the panacea-like qualities attributed to this blend comprised of Amalaki fruit (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki fruit (Terminalia belerica), Haritaki fruit (Terminalia chebula) in equal proportions.  Each berry in Triphala has a specific affinity for balancing a different dosha giving the combination of all three a perfect synergy which makes the final three fruit blend balanced and tri-doshic. This gives triphala the unique ability to balance Vata, Pitta & Kapha while rejuvenating the skin and deeper tissues. This amazing herb combination assists in the cleansing of subtle channels while the body also recognizes and responds to Triphala as a tonic and rejuvenating agent that nourishes the body.

The physical production of HTO requires extracting the essence of the healing properties of Triphala prior to gentle blending & heating in order to eventually reach the highest quality possible. This insures that the special properties sought in making HTO are achieved by the taking of extra steps and not cutting any corners in order to provide a product like none other in the market. Processing and infusing the Sesame oil with the powerful, synergistic and rejuvenating properties of Triphala render HTO a balanced and exceptionally permeable and penetrating oil enabled to deliver its deeply nourishing gifts of rejuvenation.
