Bala Sida cordifolia

Bala or ‘country mallow’ is a small hardy shrub renowned for its tough stem and root. It is native throughout India and Sri Lanka. The word Bala literally translates as ‘strength’.

The roots of this plant are renowned in Ayurveda and are traditionally combined with milk and almonds to create nourishing and tasty medicines. We use it in our Active Oil.
