For a lot of people, especially those with oily, acne prone or combination skin, using oils in their skincare regime is a scary or counter-intuitive concept. Naturally, we think of oils as pore clogging agent. But the truth is if you can choose the right oils that actually can regulate oil production by hydrating your skin and penetrate the surface to deliver key vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Believe me, everyone irrespective of skin type, age, skin concern can use oils anywhere on the face or body. To be honest I am a person with combination and acne prone skin, yet use oils on the face and body.
Today I am going to talk about an oil, I have recently incorporated into my skincare. That is Nalpamarathi Thailam. I have heard about this oil, but never used it before. When Herb Life told me to choose one product from their range, my first choice was this. From the day I received it, I have been using regularly. Let’s dive into the details of the oil.
What is Nalpamarathi Thailam:
How much we use sunscreen lotions, we get easily tanned and damaged over time. Not only that the regular exposure to sun, results in pigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone. Yet, nothing to be worried, our ancient Ayurveda has the solution to this. To get rid of all these skin issues, Ayurveda suggests regular massage with this natural skin illuminator or detanning agent, Nalpamarathi Oil.
“Nalpamaradi Thailam is a classical formula to lighten complexion as well as soften and repair skin. Potent Turmeric with its antioxidant action repairs pigmentation, uneven skin tone and marks. Moisturising Sesame Oil forms the hydrating and nourishing base. Cooling Vetiver, repairing Indian Gooseberry and antibacetrial Madder extracts heal and relieve environmental damage. It is also a highly regarded bridal beauty treatment due to its healing, repairing and brightening properties.”
Besides the skin illuminating action, this ancient Ayurveda formula is also used to treat various skin diseases, like itchy skin, eczema, acne.
Its soothing effect can calm irritated skin, provide relief from itching and burning sensation. Regular use on face, can improve complexion and gives luster. Its antioxidant properties prevents aging.

The golden oil comes in a tiny transparent glass bottle. The product can be dispensed through a glass dropper. The dropper helps to pour the exact amount.
The best way to use:
Basically I apply this oil every day one hour before taking bath. 4-5 drops are enough for face. I keep it for one hour to maximize its benefits. One can keep it for half an hour too. It immediately gives a soothing impact on my skin. You can feel this the most, if you apply in the evening after the whole hectic day. I do, the day I have to go through much work pressure. My sensitive skin gets calm and cool immediately.
First I clean my face with a cleansing oil/balm (you can use your regular cleanser), then I pour few drops on my palms. Rub the palms and apply on the face. I massage the oil in a circular motion until fully absorbed. And leave it for a hour before washing with a powder cleanser.
As it has Turmeric as one of the ingredients, the product stains. So, use with caution. If you have oily skin, it is recommended to keep on the skin for half an hour. You can use once or twice a day to get healthy, bright and problem free skin.
This Ayurvedic formula is lightweight and gentle on skin. It’s the most effective way to reveal a bright and radiant complexion. It can be used all over face and body to soothe irritations, heal any skin damage and remove pigmentation and dark spots. It also treat premature aging.
I am really happy with this amazing Ayurvedic formula and that’s at such an affordable price. Thanks to Herb Life sending me such a great product.
Thanks for reading.
Love from Shreemayee.
