Now, before you start reading about best Patanjali products here, I want to make this clear that neither am I a fan of Patanjali’s products nor do I have any kind of association with the manufacturer.
I am nobody but a consumer looking forward to buying genuine and value-for-money products. So, without any further delay, let’s get started.
They have a very ling Patanjali products list, including ayurvedic medicines, groceries, cosmetics, and various other household items.
Best Patanjali Products You Must Try
Among all the Patanjali products online or at offline stores, I have picked up 5 products which in my opinion are genuine, high in utility and, value for money.
The following are 5 best Patanjali products that you must try:
1. Patanjali Divya Gulab Jal
Gulag Jal or rose water is a tonic for the skin. It is a great cleanser that removes oils and dirt accumulated in the clogged pores of your skin.
Rose water also has astringent and toning properties that help tighten the pores and brighten the complexion of the skin.
Why Patanjali and not Dabur Gulabari?
Dabur Gulabari is more popular and widely used than Patanjali Divya Gulab Jal. Well, the answer to this question lies in their ingredients.
Among Patanjali products for skin, if you see Patanjali Divya Gulab Jal, every 10ml has 10ml of Gulab Jal. So, for each drop of it, you’re getting nothing else but pure Rosewater.
However, this is not the case with Dabur Gulabari.
If you look at its ingredients, apart from water and Rose oil, it has propylene glycol.
Propylene Glycol is a harsh alcohol, which is suspected to cause serious damage to the skin and eyes if regularly used.
Apart from the ingredients, 120 ml of Dabur Gulabari will cost you Rs. 45, whereas the same quantity of Patanjali Divya Gulab Jal will cost you Rs. 28.
So, definitely go for Patanjali Divya Gulab Jal and nourish your face skin.
2. Patanjali Shudh Shilajit
Shilajit is a thick, sticky and tar-like substance, which is predominantly found in the Himalayas. Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine, has mentioned shilajit to have over 85 minerals in their ionic form.
Sushruta Samhita states that shilajit is so powerful that it can cure all the disorders of the human body. So, Patanjali’s Shudha shilajit is one ayurvedic product that you should definitely try.
20 grams of Patanjali Shudh Shilajit will cost you Rs. 94. It may sound pricey but really is worth the money. It is recommended to have one to two drops of shilajit with milk in the evening.
3. Patanjali Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin oils are extracted by mechanically pressing the seeds rather than using heat or chemical solvents. Coconut oil has a high smoking point, making it not only ideal for cooking but also frying.
Even though coconut oil is high in saturated fat, there is nothing to worry about, as the special kind of saturated fat in coconut oil is called medium chain fatty acids.
Unlike the long-chain fatty acids found in the animal saturated fat, medium-chain need not be broken down in the small intestine and are directly delivered to the liver for energy.
Today, there are over 1500 studies proving coconut oil to be among the healthiest foods on the planet.
250 ml of Patanjali virgin coconut oil, which is free from any kind of adulteration, will cost you Rs. 170. It is much more budget-friendly than the other brands in the market.
4. Patanjali Ashwagandha Churna
Ashwagandha is a prominent hub in Indian Ayurvedic medicines and has become a popular supplement due to its numerous health benefits.
It has been used for over 3000 years to release stress, increase energy levels, and improve concentration.
One teaspoon of Patanjali Ashwagandha Churna in milk before going to bed at night will give you the best results.
Since it is most-effective to balance the stress hormone, it will also help you sleep better.
Before I reveal my top pick, I want to convey that you should not blindly follow Patanjali, as many products by Patanjali are sub-standard.
Here are a few days honorable mentions
Patanjali face wash is not an Ayurvedic medicine as the pack promises. It has many harmful chemicals like urea.
The mixed fruit jam among Patanjali products is another commercial item, which is no better than other fruit jams in the market.
Even the Atta Maggi by Patanjali is not worth the grace.
Patanjali Kesh Kanti Amla Hair Oil is not pure either. It is adulterated with synthetic colors, which do more harm to the skin than good.
So, it is always better to go through the ingredients before you choose anything to buy.
Coming back to the point.
5. Patanjali Super Dishwash Bar
This wood ash-based product by Patanjali is one of its kind.
Since time immemorial, we Indians have been using wood ash domestically for cleaning the utensils and gardening, as it is a very good source of potash.
Patanjali has clearly stated on their website that this Dishwash Bar is an organic product, made of non-toxic and 100% natural ingredients.
The soap doesn’t contain any artificial additives like colors, fragrances, enzymes, bleaches, or harmful chemicals. On the other hand, if we compare it with the most popular Vim Bar, we find some harmful chemicals.
Moreover, comparing the cost-effectiveness, Patanjali is the clear winner.
160 grams of Vim Bar will cost you Rs. 10, whereas you will get 170 grams of Patanjali wood as Dishwash Bar at the same price.
Definitely an amazing product by Patanjali.
I want to confirm that I am not with or against Patanjali products or any other brand for that matter. I simply judge a product based on its merits and demerits.
Note: The following Patanjali products review is based on my personal experience.
