Hello, Queen.
Your majesty’s beauty oil has arrived.

The amount of threads each crocus flower yields and the amount of labor required to craft saffron oil makes it one of the most expensive spices in the world. Yet it has a long list of reasons for being worth every penny, not the least of which are for your facial beautification.

Let me count the ways:
Saffron is known for boosting ojas, which strengthens immunity.
It works to help heal skin by contributing essential fatty acids towards tissue production and cell regeneration.
It’s gorgeous carmine-red hued threads have carotenoids literally packed with beauty benefits such as protecting skin tissue and cells from external aggressors.

Now, let’s look at the other botanical ingredient in this infusion: Amalaki.

Amla or Amalaki oil is derived from the fruit of the amla tree, popularly called Indian gooseberry.
This plant and the oil are loved in Ayurveda due to the high content of vitamin C, polyphenolic compounds and tannins.

Added to Saffron, Amalaki contains antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties and is known to improve dull complexions and dry skin.

The Vitamin C in the Amalaki works as a driver, helping deliver the carotenoids and fatty acids from the Saffron more deeply into the cells, making this oil more like a serum than an oil, and one that is appropriate for all 3 doshas, all ages and stages of life.

Our Saffron Amalaki Oil is made by slowly cooking and repeatedly straining the fruit as well as the crocus threads (with intermittent heat bursts to coax the threads to release their resins) into sesame and coconut oil for a period of 21 days, which allows the natural plant oils and therapeutic compounds to be imparted into the base oils..


Here are a few ways to incorporate Saffron Amalaki Oil into your life:
1. Facial Oil: Saffron Amalaki Oil can be enjoyed as an all-over facial massage, or facial cleansing, oil.
2. Facial Mask: add 3-4 drops Saffron Amalaki Oil to 1 TBSP raw honey and add either milk or yogurt for a face mask.
3. Facial Serum: combine equal amounts Saffron Amalaki oil to precious Neroli and Rose oils, rubbing together in your palms for a rejuvenating serum
4. Face Cream Booster: add some Saffron Amalaki to your face cream to reduce dark spots and brighten overall complexion

Saffron Amalaki oil offers a wide range of benefits not only for the skin but also for the hair and body.

For Hair Care: To address dandruff, dry thin hair, or hair loss, make your own scalp massage oil or mask (leave on hair for 1 hour) of Saffron Amalaki oil. This will restore lustrous hair and healthy scalp.

For Body Care: Saffron Amalaki oil can be incorporated into a body scrub which you do in the bath or shower: Make a salt scrub by adding some of your Saffron Amalaki oil to sea salt, and voila! there you are. Scrub while in hot water for the softest skin ever.

Each of my 3XO infused oils follow the Ayurvedic tradition of oil extraction rather than utilising the employment of steam distillation or solvent extraction. The reason is that each herbal oil is a “sneha”, or a form of self love and self care and, as such, it ought to provide gentle nourishment rather than intensive concentrations of volatile constituents the way that certain essential oils and solvent expressed herb products can.
