Look: mix of big chunks and smaller pieces, all the way to powder.
Smell: woah! Amazing! Yummm. Smell of cinnamon is the most prominent.
Taste: sampled big chunk of mystery brown stuff…taste tells me it is tamarind.
Internal experience: excitement to try. Desire is building
After brewing reflections
Look: Bronze colour looks healthy more than it looks appetizing. Much like milk Chai tea looks delicious much more than it looks healthy! After some time there is a mat of residue on the bottom of the glass that passed through the strainer and the liquid has gained clarity.
Smell: slight cinnamon smell with some sweetness. Pleasant aroma.
Taste: keynote is the tamarind at the forefront. Aftertaste is bitter and astringent. Holding in mouth it is sweet and pleasantly warming.
Internal experience: energizing, some soft activity in the stomach. The urge to drink more comes with the refreshing feeling. Some heat in the face is felt after some time (30 minutes or so.) Tiredness came and after est for about an hour then a bowel movement happened, and the bladder was relieved before that: showcasing its effectiveness in clearing the body out, and in a gentle way.
Intention: To review this tea as a drink only, not over a duration as a detox nor weight loss tool.
Research note: among the active plant medicine ingredients is Garcinia cambogia (named Uppage in Kannada language, Karnataka, India.) According to Wikipedia it has similar culinary usage as the common tamarind plant: Taramindus indica. Hence, the prominent tamarind taste in the flavour profile.
+Most noticeable is the scent, which I found to be pure.
+Some other coconut oils have a toasted smell, which may suggest that the heat became high during the extraction process.
+The taste is fine, though I personally enjoy the toasted taste more.
+Due to the pureness of the product, I would guess that it is most effective in delivering the healing properties of coconut.
In actual fact, today I climbed a coconut tree to harvest coconut water for the first time. When I came back to the ground, my arms and chest had many scrapes and bruises. I applied this coconut oil and by evening time my arms are feeling smooth again, and my chest has greatly improved.
Coconut oil can also be very effective for use as a sun protection, so if you would rather not smell like toasted coconut, it might be worth the price to buy this oil instead.
Without specific research, it can only be guessed that a lower extraction heat results in a more effective healing product.
Keeping more volatile oils and nutrients intact within the product may result in a more effective healing medium.
I suggest you to do your own research before hinging a decision on this alone.
The design of the pourer found under the cap allows one to pour the oil nearly drop by drop.
This cream has received mixed reviews from our family.
+The child says it smells like the jasmine flower, and he really likes the smell.
+The nephew finds the sensation cooling on the skin, but finds that it is irritating to get the cream from the bottle…similar to a ketchup bottle.
-This writer thinks it smells like a chemical factory.
-The woman says it smells “not nice”, and inside she feels nauseous, like vomiting.
+The man has been using it as a body cream and finds it has a warming sensation. On the face it produces pimples, although the same happens with simple aloe vera cream. He says the smell is fine.

There are lots of ingredients in the list and it has many additional non-plant based ingredients. We don’t know how this compares to the Vaadi products because only key ingredients are listed for that.
As I like to read spirituality related books, I started reading this ‘The Evolution of God’ mindblowing book written by Ajay Kansal.
The Author did so much research before publishing his amazing work. Very easy to understand and read, easy to read, very engaging book. I even recommend it to school children’s to read this book because understanding religion and god is very important nowadays.
Without understanding the history of religion and god, there will be a fight for the religious issue, conversion to other religions, our weakness used by politicians for vote bank.
