Reetha (Sapindus Mukorossi), also known as soapnut, soapberry, and washnut, is a dried fruit that comes from a tea bearing the same name. It originates in the tropical areas of India, China and Nepal. Antiallergic and antibacterial in nature, Reetha is a versatile Ayurvedic herb. Its skin is highly valued in the rural areas as natural shampoo and is now being increasingly used in shampoos, face washes, etc. It is also mildly antiseptic and has detoxifying effects.
