Bhumiamalaki Phyllanthus amarus
‘Bhumiamalaki’ means 'the amalaki of the earth' and the plant is named after amla (or amalaki) and ‘bhumi’, meaning the earth.
Bhumiamalaki is a very bitter tasting, low-growing, small, flowering tropical shrub. It is related to the Spurge family, and may be found across India up to 700m altitude, although it is less common in southern provinces. Bhumiamalaki has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic practices to clear and cool the channels, and is considered to be a soothing pitta-kapha pacifier, working to restore balance.
An essential part of the famous Mahanaryan oil we use it in Active Oil.
