This will stay good for 3 months.

How to use
Take 3 tbsp of the powder, mix with enough water and bathe your kids with it.

1. Make sure you dry the ingredients in the sun or saute it in a pan before grinding it.
2. After grinding in the mill, dry the powder again before storing it. Only then it will be good for many days.
3. While drying in the sun, ants may come to eat these ingredients especially the green gram so used an ant repellant chalk pieces around the plates.
4. Bengal gram benefits - bengal gram is a natural blody cleanser and it is very good in removing dead cells from the skin and it also brightens the skin
5. Green gram benefits - Green gram gives a healthy glow to the skin and retains the moisture in the skin. It removes sun tan and it improves the skin texture.
6. Kasturi manjal - this has anti septic and anti bacterial properties. It also helps in removing unwanted hair from the body if used for a long time.
7. Rose petals - this gives a lovely fragrance to the powder, it also makes the skin soft and prevents acne. It is also rich in Vitamin C.
8. Methi seeds - Adding this prevents bugs from forming in the powder.

Until next time,
