Published: 11 December 2015
By: Charmaine Davis
Reetha’s botanical name is Sapindus Mukorossi. It is also known as Soapnut because it is the fruit of the soapnut tree as well as Indian Soapberry. The pulp of the fruit contains high levels of saponins which produces the natural foam.
Reetha is a natural chemical free soap which will leave hair squeaky clean, healthy and thick. Frequent use may help to eliminate dandruff.
Reetha is great to use for treatment of lice as well as for sensitive skin, scalp and hair. Reetha can be added to Multani Mitti to cleanse skin.
What skin or hair type?
Suitable to all skin and all hair types.
Hair: Can be combined with all the other herbs in the range, Amla, Aloe Vera, Neem, Shikakai and Tulsi to make a nourishing conditioner for hair. Just add water and mix into a paste and apply to hair.
