Okra, Abelmoschus esculentus, bhindi, gumbo, or lady’s finger, is a transient wild herb that uprooted from its disputed Asian origins and made it to every nook of the globe.  Okra has established itself as a staple in many ethnic dishes from India to the United States.  Okra is everything I wanted OKRA skin care to be, diverse, transformative and healing, boasting an array of wonderful nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, niacin, calcium, iron, and an abundant amount of soluble fiber.  It’s mucilaginous properties and rich antioxidants make it a perfect healing plant for the skin inside and out.
