Shilajit, Rudraksha, Bodhi- Why are these good for your body?

Kick-starting the day with a refreshing shower wakes up your senses and keeps your skin hydrated and supple. Our Himalayan ingredient-infused body soaps can help you cleanse the dirt, and grime, moisturize the skin and get you ready for your day. 


Firstly, we have Shilajit. Originated a thousand years ago in the Himalayas, Shilajit has long been used in ‘Ayurveda healing.’  In Nepal, Muktinath, a sacred temple at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass in Mustang is also home to Shilajit. It is rich in Vitamin A and E, so it is one of our key ingredients. Shilajit is usually known as ‘Silajitu’, ‘Moomie’, ‘Momiya’, ‘Shilamaya,’ etc. It is also known as Asphaltum in English. According to Ayurveda, Shila Jatu or Shilajit is a resin-like semi-solid liquid substance, melted from the layers of the mountain as a result of summer heat. Shilajit is amalgamated with Patchouli- an herb, to create a concoction in the soap that ensures the boost of collagen production.

Shilajit Body Soap

With Asali Himali’s Shilajit body soap, you can say hi to younger-looking skin and bid adieu to signs of aging. Shilajit and Patchouli work together to fight fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with more youthful skin with every use. Using this soap as a body wash 2-3 times a week energizes your senses and gives your skin a youthful sheen, and tightens it with this aromatic soap. 


Rudraksha is another key ingredient in Asali Himali’s products. Rudraksha is a dried seed of a tree that grows in a select location in Asia, botanically known as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus. It is known as tears of Shiva as there are many legends connected to Lord Shiva that describe its origin. The word Rudraksha comes from "Rudra," the name of the Shiva, and "Aksha," meaning tears. Nepal has many divine temples, such as Pashupatinath, dedicated to Lord Shiva which is why Rudraksha holds tremendous significance as Asali Himali’s crucial ingredient.  


We have heard many benefits of wearing Rudraksha as it supports maintaining physical and mental balance. But have you heard about using it as body soap? Its curative properties have been utilized worldwide for a number of physical, mental, and psychosomatic illnesses, and knowing its benefits, we at Asali Himali have also chosen this ingredient for our body soap.


Rudraksha soap is made by finely grating Rudraksha into powders. As it contains a great deal of Vitamin C, it helps make the skin supple and smooth. Rudraksha is an antibacterial that helps to detox the skin and draw out impurities without harming the pH balance of the skin. Rudraksha also has anti-inflammatory properties that purify and soothes while deeply cleansing to remove the day's dirt, giving you clear skin every morning. Every wash from the use of Asali Himali’s Rudraksha body soap will give you pure and healthier skin that makes you feel rejuvenated.
