Why Use Kesaradi Oil?

Stress and anxiety take its toll on our bodies–including our skin. https://www.webmd.com/beauty/the-effects-of-stress-on-your-skin

 Have you ever noticed that you break out more during periods of high stress? Or perhaps you have flare-ups of eczema or other skin conditions. When we are stressed, which may be far too often, we secrete stress hormones that can leave us looking a bit tired. We need revitalization inside and out

After you’ve checked with your health care practitioner, you may want to explore the benefits of using chemical-free Ayurveda oils that nourish your skin and help relieve telltale signs of stress on our faces. 

Kesaradi oil rejuvenates and enhances skin, in part because it is infused with saffron and rose oil, both known to have anti-stress properties. Kesaradi oil leaves your skin glowing and revitalizes skin that shows signs from stress and anxiety. Even the aroma is uplifting. Kesaradi oil is an Ayurvedic beauty elixir. 

What is kesaradi oil

Like many women, until recently, I have been using facial products manufactured with a lot of chemicals. Even high-end spa cosmetics tout themselves as “natural” and “pure”; however, if you read the ingredients, there is a long list of chemical additives. Chemicals can lead to oxidative stress on our bodies and our liver has to work extra hard to filter them out.

As I began cleaning up my lifestyle in general, I started looking for natural oils to use as a face moisturizer. Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies and absorbs what we put on it. If there are chemicals in the product, they get absorbed into our bloodstream and circulate throughout our body, including our brains and neurons (brain cells).

I became acquainted with Kesaradi oil. There are no additives, chemical binders, and it is never tested on animals. It comes in a glass bottle instead of plastic–this has become a priority for me as I search out new products. Enough with the plastics already!

I also favor products that do not come in plastic. As anyone who has tried to eliminate plastic from their shopping carts, it’s not easy. So the fact that iYURA Kesari Oil comes in a glass bottle is very important to me.

Because saffron is so expensive it is important to know your source since there are a lot of cheap substitutes that trick people into thinking that they are getting the real thing–real saffron. I prefer to order Ayurveda oils directly from The Ayurveda Experience because oils can become rancid-I want the freshest products available, not ones sitting on the shelf for who knows how long.

How to Use Kesaradi Oil

A little goes a long way! Place 2-3 drops of Kesaradi oil in your palm and dab on cleansed and toned face and neck. Gently massage the oil into your skin using outward strokes or consider using a Kansa Massage Wand. Kesaradi oil leaves your skin glowing and revitalizes skin that shows signs from stress and anxiety. Even the aroma is uplifting. Kesaradi oil is an Ayurvedic beauty elixir.  a wand. Move-in circles and complete one side of your face, then move on to the other side.
