General Information:

Amba haldi also known as Mango-ginger' or 'Amra Haridra' in Sanskrit, consists of the rhizome of Curcuma amada Roxb. (Fam. Zingiberaceae). It is closely related to Turmeric with a mango taste. The powder of this fragnant rhizome is yellow in colour and has slight bitter sweet taste. The roots are carefully dried to preserve their natural aroma, freshness and most importantly its health beneficial properties. Internally, Amba Haldi has antioxidant properties, very similar to that of Turmeric and Ginger Root, for boosting the immunity.

How to use:

As a spice.

Powdered Herb:

There are different ways to use powdered herb.

Food Preparation: You can add powdered herbs to any super food, herbal smoothie, sauces, spreads and even cookies. Also, for children, you can mix powdered herbs with honey or glycerin to make a paste. The thicker the paste, the more potent and herbal in taste. The sweet taste of honey and glycerin will help the medicine go down. This method is also known as "Electuaries".

Capsules: Encapsulating your own powdered herb at home, give you assurance that the contents of the capsules are pure herb and no filler or any other products. These capsules can be taken with liquid.

Poultice: Poultice can be made with an herbal powder and liquid (mostly water) to form a paste which is then applied to the skin. This method is very helpful for skin conditions.

Herbal shot: Powdered herb can be mixed with water, fruit juice or other liquid to make herbal shot. 

Precautions: 

You should consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
