Brown Warss

Brown Warss

Warss – Ceylon Cornel (Tree) – Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her) narrated, “The woman who has just delivered would remain for forty days afterwards [without praying or fasting]. One of us would then overlay Warss on her face to help against spots.”

Warss is dry and hot in the second degree. The best type of Warss is the red one, which is soft in the hand and does not have much bran. Warss is used as an ointment to treat spots, rashes, and pimples that appear on the surface of the skin. Warss constipates, has a dyeing quality and helps against leprosy when taken as a drink.

Warss has similar benefits of “Sea Costus” {i.e. Qust al Bahri} and if it is used as an ointment it relieves Vitiligo (skin condition of unknown cause, characterized by patchy loss of pigment), rashes, pimples and ulcers.

  1. Generally it is sold in natural beauty product and herb stores. The price for Warss has gone up significantly, therefore it is very difficult to acquire. If you’re in KSA, check the open market places In Shaa Allaah.

  9. Aameen to your du’aa. I appreciate it very much.

    Ataarah – عطارة means herbs, druggist, spice dealer, perfumer … These types of shops are very popular here in Saudi Arabia. There are a few in close proximity to Masjid al Haram. Your parents shouldn’t have a problem finding one.

    May Allaah pardon them and accept their Hajj.

    I don’t know if it’s available in ointment form, Allaahu Aa’lam. You can make your own, In Shaa Allaah. There are a multitude of DIY videos on YouTube that’ll show you how to make lotions, balms, salves, etc.

    I make my own Warss Oil and blend it with other things beneficial for the skin, such as Turmeric and Myrrh.
