In India, the plant is also called Bhangra or Bhringaraj. The oil is made of the leaves of the Bhringraj tree, which is predominately used to give scalp massages.

In Ayurveda Medicine, Bhringraj oil is considered beneficial for healthy hair and abundant hair growth. It’s an oil rich in iron, Vitamin E and D, magnesium, polypeptides, steroids, calcium, and proteins.
