Try Kumkumadi Oil: A Potent Elixir Derived From The World’s Most Expensive Spice.

Skincare contains many beneficial ingredients that can be found all over the world. Actives are coming into play while age-old ingredients flourish. It’s a lot to take in. Kumkumadi oil or saffron oil are examples. We all know that Saffron is one of the world’s most expensive spices due to its rarity, both in availability and in the possibility of harvesting it. Saffron also helps your skin look great. “Kumkumadi is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Kumkuma’, which means red gold saffron. Kumkumadi oil is regarded as a miraculous elixir. Mythology is attributed to the twin Vedic Gods of medicine, the Ashwini Kumaras, who formulated it with sacred herbs,” says Ainsley Mayben, Training Lead at Kama Ayurveda.

What Is Kumkumadi Oil?

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just saffron oil. In addition to saffron threads, other oils such as almond, sesame, and rose oils and other ingredients such as sandalwood, Indian madder, vetiver, and lotus contribute to its formulation. Known for its skin benefits, the blend is touted as one of the best treatments for aging, dull and damaged skin. Kumkumadi oil was a prominent part of the beauty routines of ancient queens because of its age-old recipe and origin. Mayben explains that historically, Rani Samyukta, Prithviraj Chauhan’s queen, sourced the red, gold herb from the valleys of Kashmir to add to her nightly regimen. Kumkumadi oil has become a staple of an array of Ayurveda-inspired beauty brands.

Benefits Of Kumkumadi Oils

This oil is the easiest way to provide your skin with the healing, repairing, and rejuvenating benefits of Saffron. Saffron’s powerful mineral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties make it an effective antidote for dullness, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, zits, irritation, and environmental damage.

It brightens and improves the skin’s texture and brings out its natural glow. The oil also contains other components that contribute to better skin. For example, Indian madder extract helps tone the skin. “Vetiver and lotus extracts calm and cleanses the skin, and liquorice extracts protect and improve skin texture,”
