The Magic Ancient Bodhi Tree

The Discovery:
the Life Energy of Bodhi

After researching the teachings of her grandmother, an Ayurvedic healer, Dr. Anjali found her miracle ingredient in the Bodhi tree. The Bodhi tree’s distinctive heart-shaped leaves have been used for thousands of years to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul.

The Bodhi tree’s leaves are so full of life, they are known to move even when the air is still. Steeped in Buddhist and Hindu tradition, some believe that Gods dance on these mystical leaves, providing energy that revives the body.

Bodhi Leafs in the Sun

Known as ficus religiosa (sacred fig, pipal, peepal, and bo), a true Bodhi tree must trace its lineage back the first Bodhi tree in Asia.

It was under the most famous Bodhi tree where the young Prince Siddhartha meditated, attained enlightenment and became the Buddha.

*A branch of this revered tree was planted in 288 BC in Sri Lanka, now known as the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi . It is respected as the oldest planted flowering tree in the world.

Dr. Anjali became fascinated by this source of endless life energy. After years of searching for the secret to energizing skin, Dr. Anjali realized she had discovered a natural miracle.

The Bodhi tree breathes beauty and life into all it touches. It heals the skin, rejuvenates cellular energy, restores skin’s natural balance and powerfully reduces inflammation – allowing the skin to return to its glowing, radiant state.

Dr. Anjali made it her mission to capture the Bodhi tree’s revitalizing energy and create powerful enlightened skincare solutions with the world’s most effective energizing botanicals.
