Prásara opened its all-new herbarium recently in Dankotuwa.
This all-new herbarium consists of over 200 unique hela osu plants and was designed to serve as a hub for education and research, welcoming schools and universities to explore the wonders of Sri Lanka’s age-old practices of hela vedakama.
Prásara celebrated this milestone by partnering with key schools in the Western province and extended an invitation to their students to partake in this educational experience. The Prásara herbarium was designed and built in collaboration with the Wickramarachchi University of Indigenous Medicine in Gampaha and the partnership supported an effective knowledge sharing to the young learners about the fascinating world of Sri Lanka’s traditional hela osu plants.
As part of the educational initiative, Prásara organised guided tours to its factory, where students witnessed the firsthand production process of Hemas Manufacturing.
Students discovered and gained knowledge on the process of the infusion of the herbs they saw in the herbarium used in Prásara’s renowned product range which includes soaps, toothpaste, face care, and an ayurvedic tonic which contain 100 percent authentic extract of hela osu.
All Prásara products are based on an age-old hela osu recipe that uses an authentic herbal extract co-created by ayurveda doctors to provide natural wellness balance to the entire family. Prásara’s Herbarium will pave the way for a harmonious collaboration between academia and hela osu medicine.
