Across India, the most quintessential feature of a Bride is her Nikhaar, or Bridal Glow. Elaborate rituals, traditionally, the “Sola Shringar” or the sixteen arts of beauty and adornment, are carried out on the bride, to prepare for the Nikhaar to show by the day of her wedding. These included anointing of oil, polishing with perfumed pastes, as well as applying nourishing hair masques.

Beautifully packed, with their inherent significance and benefits intact, our freshly ground Indian wedding rituals are here for you to look the best version of yourself on your big day..

ABHYANGA, THE BRIDAL MASSAGE

Toned and scented skin with a golden sheen

Traditionally, the bride’s body is massaged with fragrant floral oils in the days leading up to her wedding, as a holistic treatment for the mind, body, and soul. The process of lovingly oiling one’s body restores vitality and promotes a sense of harmony and well-being.

Infused with our path-breaking Soundarya Serum and pure Gold Bhasma, the Soundarya Shimmering Oil is light in texture and acts as a tonic for the skin. It increases collagen production and skin elasticity while firming and toning the skin. The benefits of gold have been recognized for thousands of years in Ayurvedic scriptures for its beautifying and healing properties. Gold invigorates and tones the muscles while giving the skin a luminous lustre. Remember to massage in the direction of your heart to boost circulation and for an overall glow!

HALDI & CHANDAN RITUAL

An iridescent glow for the Face and the Body

The Haldi ceremony is when the Bride and the Groom dress in minimalist clothes and where the family applies an Ubtan over the to be weds’ face and body. This Ubtan is prepared with Haldi (Turmeric) grinded with Chandan (Sandalwood) into a paste known to be auspicious, fragrant and glow bestowing.

Our Soundarya Ubtan is a slightly modified version of the typical Haldi-Kesar Ubtan with many additional ingredients including Jasmine Petals that neutralize oil production, Neem Powder with antiseptic properties and Orange Peel that helps remove unwanted tan.

KESHPASH, HAIRCARE FOR THE BRIDE

Fuller, Thicker Hair

The Bride’s hair is traditionally massaged with pure Sesame, Coconut or Almond Oil infused with herbs. To this well-oiled hair, a paste of Shikakai, Nagarmoth and Kachura herbs was then applied as a hair masque of sorts. This was followed by a hair wash with Reetha, a herb that cleansed the hair thoroughly.

To recreate this ritual, choose from our Japapatti Ayurvedic herb enriched head massage oils to massage your scalp, for your strands apply the Japapatti Hair Masque and leave both on for 30 - 45 minutes. Follow with a hair wash using our sulphate free Japapatti Hair Cleanser.
