When a plant feels tingly in the mouth and on the skin it often means it’s stimulating the circulation. Wasabi is no exception to that rule and will be therefore very good for stimulating the scalp and encouraging healthy hair growth.
What do wasabi, horseradish, and mustard have in common? They are used as condiments, have a pungent taste, and in fact, they are from the same family, the Brassicaceae. Wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, is very popular in cooking, pleasantly tickling the taste buds of those who have been curious enough to try it. Whereas the root looks gnarled from the outside, its inner flesh is a pale, soft green.
This decoction is made by boiling wasabi in water until half of the water evaporates, creating a concentrated liquid extract.
Lush purchase wasabi in three different places. Whenever possible, the green condiment comes from a local producer to the Poole manufacturing sites (UK), but if they can’t meet production needs it can also come from two other sources in Japan and in Indonesia.
