The Mighty Tale of MahaMane
The mighty tale of MahaMane begins with ancient mane secrets that lie deep within the Indian jungle, where potent plant roots and fruit oils work in harmony to bestow instant shine and tame even the wildest of manes.
The word ‘maha’ itself translates to ‘great’ or ‘mighty’ in Sanskrit which perfectly encapsulates the purpose of our newest collection - to bring to the world small but mighty Ayurvedic ingredients for a glorious mane. This oil was born so you can have greatness, no matter where you are. We also wanted it to serve as a reminder that being great doesn’t necessarily mean being the first, being strong or being the biggest but rather remembering that soft always overcomes hard. Afterall, softness is strength.
This sentiment comes from the fable our grandma used to tell us about the lion and mouse in which a tiny mouse accidentally disturbs a lion from his rest. To the mouse's surprise and delight, the lion decides to let her go free. Later, when the lion is caught in a poacher's net, the mouse nibbles through the rope and, returning the favour, sets the lion free. The moral of the story? That small can be mighty!
We believe it takes courage to become your own healer but finding the source is a journey in softening yourself and the world around you.
Everything we do at Fable & Mane is an ode to our grandparents. The fables and lessons our grandmother would tell us live on in everything we do and our grandfather was a great healer who taught us everything we know.
