Where it comes from:
They say you should never judge a book by its cover but it is the dry, leathery outer skin (and not the rich red inner seed) of the pomegranate that has been used by dyers in Southern Europe, Southeast Asia and India for centuries.
It can yield a variety of shades from deep golden to greenish gray and black. In India, dyers mixed it with haldi (turmeric) for brighter tones.
Why its good for you:
It has natural anti-radioactive properties that are an effective shield against today’s polluted environment
