Clear Shiny Skin

Recommended Posts

asalamu alaykum

i have a book about Prophetic(peace be upon him) medicine. In one of the sections i've read that Hazrat Ayesha(razi Allah anha) had some sort of spots(ance?) on her face which disappeared by the use of a herb which is called WARS in arabic. even after that he used to apply WARS mixed with olive oil regularly on her face and by which her skin was so spotless and shiny that people used to call her by the name of 'Hamra'*

 

In the book WARS is translated as MEMECYLON, TINCTURA or EDULE. in india and sri lanka a plant similar in properties to wars is known by the name of ' WARI KAHA' or 'ANJANA'.

 

Can somebody else please throw some light on WARS?

 

* don't know its meaning. someone please translate it for us

In the times of Prophet Muhammad( sallal`laho alaihi wasallam) it was used to color the clothes and face of the bridegroom
