As a holistic wellness lifestyle brand, Aldha has always committed to curating clean, natural, and organic skincare, home, and wellness products.
As a part of our effort to spread the awareness of the amazing natural ingredients that are found in our range of natural skincare products, we have put together a special series highlighting special flowers and herbs found in your skincare that have incredible skincare benefits:
To kick off the feature, we would like to draw your attention to a little-known herb – the Mullein plant.
Native to Asia and the Mediterranean, Mullein is a herb commonly used for traditional medicinal purposes. For a little-known herb, it has a wide variety of benefits associated with it:
Now doesn’t that sound like an ingredient you would like to be in your skincare product?
The most commonly used variant of the mullein plant is the common variety - Verbascum Thapsus. Both the flowers and leaves (either fresh or dry) are used in extracting the useful oils of the plant. The two most common ways of extracting the beneficial properties of the mullein oils for commercial use involve either hot or cold processing.
In natural skincare, apart from mullein oil extracts, fresh or dried mullein flowers and leaves are also commonly found in creams and lotions that can be applied topically.
Like many other natural ingredients, some species of mullein may cause a skin reaction. So be sure to do a patch skin test before introducing mullein into your skincare routine.
Ready to incorporate this super useful herb into your skincare routine? We picked 5 of our favourite skincare products that contain this incredible medicinal herb!
