Bhringraj (Eclipta Prostrata), also commonly known as False Daisy, is a plant in the Sunflower family. You will find this plant cultivated across the world, but notably in India, Nepal, China, Thailand, and Brazil.

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.

Bhringraj oil, applied cold or warm, is mostly used as a remedy against dandruff, hair loss, thin hair, scalp itching, dry hair, and premature greying.
