Manjistha is one of Ayurveda’s most popular herbs for lymphatic support. When the lymph system become sluggish, people complain of fatigue, exhaustion, skin problems, sore throats, puffy hands and feet, and weight gain. Manjistha supports the natural functions of the lymphatic system, as it facilitates nutrition of the cells and removal of wastes from the body. If chronic wounds are washed with the decoction of Manjistha and dressed with its solid extract, healing is hastened. In the case of fractures, an external splint of Manjistha is beneficial. Manjistha is used in treating hepatitis, diabetes and urinary calculi. Manjistha is a very good skincare herb. Used externally and internally, it makes the skin lustrous and glowing and helps to remove pimples, freckles and discoloration. Its finely crushed powder can be simply applied on the face after mixing it with little honey. A combination of 100 gms dried and crushed orange peels and 50 gms each of sandal powder, turmeric and Manjistha, makes an excellent face pack. So Manjistha not only prevents health problems, heals and cures, it beautifies as well. This is what makes it Ayurveda’s herb of choice for total healthcare, not just in the past, but today too.
