Aquilaria and Gyrinops are the main trees from which this wood can be obtained but precisely there are fifteen species in the genus Aquilaria and eight are known to produce Agarwood. These trees yield the Agarwood when they become infected with a type of mold. Agarwood is used to extract the incredible Agarwood oil which has some great healing and therapeutic properties. There are however, some complexities involved in the process of extraction of the Agarwood oil. For instance, the fungus infected tree should be at least one hundred years old, in order to produce the oil. Steam or water distillation is generally used for extracting the oil and once it is done, the wood is then soaked and placed in huge burners to evaporate water and dissolve resins. The oil then starts floating on the top.<br /><br />The significance of the Agarwood and its oil can be traced to very early times when they held great cultural and religious significance as they have found mention in the world's oldest written texts – the Vedas from India. Many people remain unaware about the great properties of Agarwood oil, which is beneficial for health and provides a natural way of dealing with a lot of physical and psychological problems. Highly useful in vitiated condition of rheumatoid arthritis, Agarwood oil also acts as an astringent. It is quite bitter, thermogenic, acrid, depurative, alexeteric and also has anti-leprosy properties. Its effect on the nervous system is widely acclaimed as it calms the nervous system and also helps in relieving anxiety by expelling negative energies. Agarwood oil makes a person alert and helps in invoking a sense of peace & strength and enhances cerebral functioning.<br /><br />Those suffering from obsessive behavior and neurosis can use the Agarwood oil as it offers a great natural cure for these problems. Owing to its psychoactive properties, it is recommended by experienced practitioners to be used in for meditation and devotion. It has some spiritual significance attached to it and is believed to enlighten and clarify the mind to take a person on a spiritual journey. It harmonizes the spirit, body and mind. Some people also believe that the fragrance of the Agarwood smoke carries the prayers to the creator.<br /><br />Thus, having both medicinal and spiritual significance, Agarwood Oil is quite incredible. When used effectively, it can have miraculous psychological effects and fills the person with great spiritual sense. Agarwood has a combined effect on the body, soul and mind.</p> Healthy Glowing Skin with Ayurvedic Skin Care http://www.saiexportindia.com/blog/healthy-glowing-skin-with-ayurvedic-skin-care_425.htm Mon, 27 Jun 2011 11:58:12 +0530 <p>Women have always been very concerned about their skin and its beauty. Skin care requires a lot of patience and a good knowledge about one’s skin type. In the present times, more and more people are becoming inclined towards choosing nature as the way to take care of their skin. Ayurveda offers some very great methods for effective skin care, derived directly from nature. Being 100% natural and carrying the essence of Mother Earth, these methods have virtually no side effects. For taking care of skin through Ayurveda, one needs to recognize one’s skin type. The major skin types according to Ayurveda are- Vata, Pitta and Kapha.</p> <strong> <p>Vata Skin</p> </strong> <p>It is soft, delicate, with a clear radiance and more pores as compared to the other skin types. Imbalance in the Vata skin causes it to be dry, lined and flaky. Occasionally there is a fine grayish or bluish hue for the skin, which is caused due to the presence of minimal number of capillaries in the skin. Skin below eye area, forehead and ears are particularly vulnerable for skin conditions like darkening and discoloration, wrinkles, etc. in the Vata skin type. Ayurveda offers great cure for the problems of this skin type. People of Vata skin type need to consume ghee and include food items prepared with ghee in their diet. They can also use moisturizing products that contain olive oil, almond oil, etc. which can nourish the skin and keep it moisturized. A face pack made of Shatavari root, Hibiscus flowers and Vithari root powder mixed with yogurt can do miracles to the skin within ten minutes, if used in the morning and in the evening.</p> <strong> <p>Pitta Skin</p> </strong> <p>Pitta skin is healthy, glowing and rosy and becomes quite red when exposed to sunlight. External factors can also cause inflammations and wrinkles in the Pitta skin and it is highly susceptible to pimples, acne and lesions. The central areas of the face including nose, the back of neck and scalp are Pitta areas. The problems related to the Pitta skin can be effectively cured with the help of cooling oils and herbs like Neem, turmeric, manjistha, cucumber, ghee, coconut, khus, rose, and sandalwood etc. People with pitta skin type should go for a cool diet and avoid acidic and heavily spicy food items. Oil prepared from coconut oil, ghee, powders of neem leaf, turmeric root, haritaki fruit, sandalwood, and rose petal and grated cucumber, if applied to the skin in morning and evening, can provide a natural glow to the skin.</p> <strong> <p>Kapha Skin</p> </strong> <p>Kapha skin is smooth, oily and mostly free from wrinkles and dryness. Most commonly the Kapha Skin is oily thus resulting in problems like excess cystic acne, which can leave scars. The Kapha areas of skin are chin and neck. This skin is also susceptible to problems of acne and pimples. Aloe vera, sage leaf, lotus petals, rose petals, etc are good herbs for Kapha type skin. Moreover, this skin type also requires regular toning and cleaning which can be done with the help of natural toners and cleansers like floral waters.</p> <p>This, if you also dream of getting that shining, flawless skin then turn to nature and turn to Ayurveda because nature is the ultimate source of good skin care.</p> What Type Of Massage Oil Is Best http://www.saiexportindia.com/blog/what-type-of-massage-oil-is-best_428.htm Wed, 27 Jul 2011 10:44:07 +0530 <p>Nowadays, oil massage therapy has emerged as a new stress buster.

If we talk about fragrant oils, our concern remains the same. Our mind gets preoccupied with the queries akin to: “Is this oil authentic?” “Does it have natural or artificial fragrance?” “Are the harmful chemicals used during their extraction?” “Is the product I’m using safe?” The answers to these complex questions depend upon the type of oil we use.<br /><br /><br />Now, let’s look at the extraction process of “essential oils.” These oils are usually extracted through the process of steam distillation, and sometimes hydro-distillation of plants, flowers and other natural resources. However, essential oils of fruits like grapefruit and orange are extracted by putting forth the pressure on their skin. Moreover, “absolutes” are those perfume oils, which are attained by solvent extraction. There is another method of extraction which is even environment friendly: CO2 extraction method.<br /><br /><br />Let’s briefly discuss the methods under consideration one by one. Firstly, the steam distilled oils, widely used in the process of aromatherapy, are obtained by the high-temperature contact of hot steam and the plant material to take apart the fragrant oils. Because the enormously high temperature can eliminate the subtle fragrance molecules, steam distillation method is not successful in case of perfume oils.<br /><br /><br />Secondly, the process of hydro-distillation is comparatively a gentle one. In this process, firstly the plant materials are boiled in the water, the consequential steam is collected as well as reduced, and the fragrant oils are eventually taken apart from the condensed water. The conventional Indian perfumes are hydro-distilled only. However, most of them in today’s times are synthetic. <br /><br /><br />Both the distillation methods are unsuccessful in case of some flowers. Solvent-extraction is used in such cases. As already mentioned that “absolutes” are those perfume oils which are attained by solvent extraction, one should also know that these absolutes are extremely concentrated, since no heat is involved in this process. In addition, the quality of absolutes depends directly upon the quality of solvent which is used. The use of inferior solvents is clearly apparent in the eventual absolute: we can smell the solvent even after it is converted into an absolute and even after its dilution into the water. Flowers such as Rose and Lavender are available in both absolute and essential oil form.<br /><br /><br />Fourthly, the environmental friendly CO2 method uses neither heat nor solvents or toxics. Its eventual oil is closest to the original plant material as CO2 method uses the pressure from natural carbon dioxide in its extraction process. Although the oils extracted from this process cost more than any other method, but they undoubtedly work beautifully in pharmaceutical industries, aromatherapy and perfume industries.<br /><br /><br />Note: Never forget to dilute absolutes and essential oils before using them. People with chemical sensitivity should use natural perfumes attained from essential oils, and other people can simply choose as they like it.</p> Attars Indian Attars Floral Attars Herbal Attars http://www.saiexportindia.com/blog/attars-indian-attars-floral-attars-herbal-attars_430.htm Wed, 27 Jul 2011 10:51:36 +0530 <p>In simple words, Attar means fragrance, scent or essence. Attars are extracted from plant materials and plenty of them available are in the world. Even in India, the craze for attars obtained from herbs, spices, flowers or barks, is not the less. These herbal attars in India are not only used for fragrance purposes but also for pharmaceutical purposes. For instance, Sandalwood oil is commonly used to soothe and reduce depression, tension and exhaustion.<br /><br /><br />Let’s now look at the variety of floral attars along with their extraction procedures. Before discussing about it, let’s make it clear that Pure Indian Attars are generally called Herbal attars, Mitti attars or Floral attars. However, the subtle difference between them will get cleared as we go along.<br /><br /><br />On one hand, Floral attars are extracted from the single species of the flower: Rose, Jasmine, Chameli, Mogra, Raat Rani, Khus etc. On the other hand, Herbal attars are extracted from a mixture of flowers, spices and herbs: Kesar, Amber, Heena, Musk etc. In addition, Mitti attar is prepared by the distillation of the mixture of clean baked earth and base oil, say, Sandalwood oil. <br /><br /><br />Although Rose is not the national flower of India, but this flower is very much used and revered in the Indian states. Obtained either by distillation, solvent extraction, or carbon dioxide extraction, the incredible aroma of Rose not only cures depression but also evokes an erotic passion.<br /><br /><br />If Rose is called the Queen of the Flowers, then Jasmine is known as the King of Flowers.
