DIFFERENT USES OF SHILAJIT
In our recent blogs, we’ve researched Shilajit in sports, origins of this amazing substance, and the importance of quality and thus its beneficial properties (if you want to read about those topics, just click the underlined words). This time, we’d like to go a bit deeper into different uses of Shilajit, since it’s not limited to only oral intake as a supplement. Shilajit can be used in a variety of ways, so let’s get right to it.
Since this is its primary use, its only natural that we start here. Usually, this product is taken once a day, dissolved in 200 ml of warm water. The recommended dosage of Shilajit is about 0.2 g or put more simply, piece of Shilajit the size of a pea. If you decide to dissolve it in warm water, then you should expect a bitter taste of the beverage, and while this doesn’t bother most coffee and other bitter drink lovers, it can be a bit off-putting for some. To avoid this, simply add ghee, coconut butter, cinnamon, or honey to the solution. This makes it much easier to drink and also a bit more healthy, which is never a bad thing. Ingested like this, Shilajit can benefit many areas from cognitive functions to basic body functions.
Since we’re looking for different uses of Shilajit, skin-care is only the next logical step. Its many useful properties can be used for a nice skin-pilling, particularly of the face area. If you want to try it, make sure to steam your skin with a hot compress and then apply a facial mask of Shilajit. Also, make sure you bypass the area around your eyes since the skin there is much more sensitive. The active time of the procedure is about half an hour. Remove Shilajit face mask with warm water and because it dissolves this way quickly, there’s no need for painful removal that many similar products suffer from. Alternatively, you can use warm chamomile broth that itself has skin-cleansing properties. Numerous users reported that it can have a rejuvenating and cleansing effect on your skin. It can also be easily maintained with regular use. Some people even report anti-wrinkle effect but that’s up to you to decide…give it a try, it might just work.
It’s been researched and confirmed that Shilajit contains 85 ionic minerals, nutrients, and other compounds that can be beneficial for the body. So, why should we use it on our hair? Since some elements in Shilajit could support hair growth, we recommend you try a face-mask. One of the methods is mixing Shilajit and honey with a quality emulator like olive oil or even eggs. The choice here is entirely yours since it can be applied in a variety of ways. Apply the mixture to your hair, hair roots, and massage it gently into your scalp. You can leave it on for anywhere between 30 min to 1 hour. Then just rinse with warm water and its done. Its been reported that it can help improve hair growth, minimize hair loss, and actually make them stronger. This can be done once a month or on a weekly basis, depending on your needs.
Skincare, hair mask, or a healthy beverage, Shilajit is certainly an amazing gift of nature. Experimenting with it like this can even bring excellent results.
