The Story of Kumkumadi Tailam

The Story of Kumkumadi Tailam

In the days of Gods and Demi-Gods, there came a powerful essential oil that changed the face of the Earth! Derived from the power of saffron strands, it was called the Elixir of the Gods and was in fact said to be created by Gods!

The Ashvins (aka Asvins, Asvinau, or Asvini Kumaras) are two twin brothers, the sons of the sun god Surya. They may also be referred to as the 'Horsemen' and are forever young, handsome, and athletic. They are considered the physicians of the gods. As twins, they represent a cosmic duality of ideas such as light and dark, healing and destruction and possess the power to cure. They are considered the official doctors of svarga, one of the intermediary heavens and realm of Indra. In this guise, they are known individually as Dasra and Nasatya or collectively as Dasras, Nasatyas, Gadagadau, or Svarvaidyau.

In the quest for the one true and powerful concoction for humans, they travelled far and wide and finally came to the foothills of the Himalayas where they found the solution to their search. Within the strands of the native saffron was the miraculous solution which would then be used to create the famous Kumkumadi Tailam!

The Elixir of the Gods, or the Liquid Gold Serum as it is fondly known as today can:

  • Help overcome ageing spots, wrinkles & blemishes.
  • Help get rid of impurities both internally & externally
  • Nurture & repairs skin in the deepest layers
  • Add suppleness, luminosity & glow to dull, ageing or pigmented skin

And these are just a few of its powerful benefits.

This story was noted in ancient scriptures and over the years changed hands to be what it is today but the gist of it as well as the powerful concoction created has survived the centuries!
