Sidr oil is extracted from the leaves of the Al-sidr tree, also known as the Jujube tree, in the Middle East. This oil has a long history of use in herbal medicine and the Al-sidr tree is even mentioned in the Quran where it is referred to as a plant of Paradise.
Sidr oil has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties and is commonly used on the skin and hair. It may treat cuts and wounds, heal skin conditions and inflammation, promote hair growth and relieve dandruff and itchy scalp.
Directions for use
Sidr oil should not be ingested, but it can be applied directly to the skin and hair. It can be massaged into the joints and muscles and other areas to treat pain or inflammation.
