Amba haldi also known as Mango-ginger' or 'Amra Haridra' in Sanskrit, consists of the rhizome of Curcuma amada Roxb. (Fam. Zingiberaceae). It is closely related to Turmeric with a mango taste. The powder of this fragnant rhizome is yellow in colour and has slight bitter sweet taste. The roots are carefully dried to preserve their natural aroma, freshness and most importantly its health beneficial properties. Internally, Amba Haldi has antioxidant properties, very similar to that of Turmeric and Ginger Root, for boosting the immunity. Daily intake of 1-2 teaspoons of Amba Haldi with warm milk or in your daily smoothie will work wonders as a digestive aid.
Externally Amba Haldi with its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties has been extensively used for the preparation of skincare products. You can create a natural facial mask, mixed with fuller earth clay and Rose water.
