Manjistha is an Ayurvedic herb that is mentioned in the Brihat trayis, the three major texts on Ayurveda. The Brihat trayis includes the Charak Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hridaya by Vagbhata. Charaka categorized it as varnya (one that improves complexion), jvarahara (relieves fever) and vishaghna (removes toxins)
Manjistha For Skin-
The blood purifying property of manjistha can be attributed to its ability to calm the Pitta dosha. An imbalanced Pitta dosha vitiates the blood and impairs its normal functioning. Just like the rakta dhatu (blood), the Pitta dosha is also instrumental in determining skin features such as color, texture and temperature.
When Pitta dosha becomes aggravated, the excess heat built up inside the body may manifest itself by making your skin reddish, irritable and prone to eruptions. Manjistha, with its sweet, bitter and astringent taste, is an effective Pitta pacifier and supports healthy, younger looking, clean and clear skin.
