Mira Kulkarni – Coconut Oil (Forest Essentials)

Mira Kulkarni had been exposed to the Ayurvedic way to life early in life having a home in the Tehri Garhwal region of Uttaranchal which is the Ayurvedic hub in India. She had realized a gap in the market for user-friendly Ayurvedic products as against the traditional Ayurvedic products available, which were too strongly scented and though effective, not very pleasant to use, hence she worked with Vaids and modern biochemists to produce a range of products, which while keeping the inherent properties of Ayurveda intact, are wonderfully scented and pleasurable to use. In this way she created Forest Essentials as an authentic traditional, luxury ayurvedic skin care brand with its foundations in the ancient science of Ayurveda. Amongst the many products they have, The Forest Essentials Organic Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is among the top products. This oil is extracted from the fresh grated white flesh of strictly graded high quality Coconuts to procure the richest extract. The creamy flesh of the coconut is separated through a meticulous series of centrifuges at low temperatures. An old fashioned cold press method is then used to distil the oil into traditional wooden Kohlus, without the application of heat so as to retain the oil’s nutrients and its superior quality. A regular massage with this tones, relaxes and nourishes the skin and muscle tissue as well as flushes the toxins from the body to give lustre to the skin. This multi-purpose oil can also be applied to the hair for its nourishing and conditioning qualities.
