The amla fruit, also known as the Indian Gooseberry, is a highly nutritious, greenish-yellow fruit with an intriguing, sweet yet sour flavor. The berries grow on a small deciduous tree with small branchlets. In its native India, the amla tree has been worshipped as Mother Nature because it has numerous internal and external applications within traditional Ayurvedic practices. The nourishing fruit is naturally rich in Vitamin C, minerals, polyphenols including ellagitannins (tannins), flavonoids, ellagic acid and other phytochemicals. The seeds are reported to be comprised of a significant quantity of Linolenic Acid, an omega-3 essential fatty acid and Linoleic Acid, an omega-6 essential fatty acid.

Amla Oil has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its wide range of beneficial applications. The oil is especially well embraced for its remarkable ability to nourish and promote healthy hair and scalp.

Our Amla Oil is meticulously produced using a multi-step process that incorporates the nutritive benefits of expeller pressed amla seed oil with the benefits of amla fruit macerated/extracted into sesame seed oil. To begin the process, amla fruit is crushed and is then boiled to release the natural fruit oils. The infusion is then reduced under vacuum pressure. The resulting hydro-extract is then gently warmed in sesame oil, and the remaining moisture is removed. Separately, the seeds are expeller pressed. The resulting expeller pressed seed oil is collected and added to the sesame oil extract to produce the final Amla Oil.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
