Homemade Herbal Tonic For Healthy and Beautiful Skin

I have prepared a super tonic for beautiful and healthy skin. I would like to share it with IMBB.

Homemade Herbal Tonic For Beautiful Skin

All you need for this wonderful recipe is:

1. Neem leaves (Azardicta indica) – one handful.

Neem

2. Guava leaves (tender)- 8 to 10 leaves.

Guava Leaves

3.Tulsi leaves- one handful.

Tulsi

Step-by-Step Procedure To Make Herbal Skin Tonic:

    • Put all the leaves in a bowl with 500 ml of water.

leaves

    • Grind and mix the leaves using hands (sometimes, I use a mortar and pestle).  You can also use a mixer, but hands are indeed enough).  Keep this mixture overnight.

Herbal skin tonic

    • Next morning, strain and squeeze it hardly using hands. If you wish to store it for a couple of days , then use a sieve.  The mixture will look like this.

Herbal tonic

  • Wash your cleansed face using the tonic liberally.

You may keep this in a refrigerator and use it for a couple of days.  It can also be used with face packs as a solvent.  You can transfer this to a spray bottle and spray it directly on your face and feel refreshed.

How This Herbal Tonic Works?

The anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties of neem leaves keeps your skin free of acne and other infections. The astringent property of guava leaves keeps your skin tight and wrinkle free. It works well for pimples too.  Tulsi imparts the glow to your skin and keeps it healthy.

Everybody should try this. Its very easy and less time consuming as well.  You will notice the change within two weeks. Your skin will turn visibly healthy. You can prepare this in appropriate quantity and store in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Wash your face at least twice with this natural tonic.  However, this tonic is a little bitter and that’s the only con of using this herbal homemade skin tonic.

:D well, I managed an 89.something percentile in CAT and got through to IMT Nagpur, so I was happy about TG’s help! (I didn’t join it but that’s a different story :P) That’s a really inspiring story, Sanjeev, and I’m glad both of your efforts paid off :) Haha Dagny ma’am :D

surabhi, it’s best that you try the foundation at the store. It is nearly impossible to tell someone’s foundation shade online. :(

Sanjeev..

Is it you and Rati on Total Gadha.com? You guys run the CAT coaching sessions..? I did not know that..

Reply

Sanjeev December 18, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Hi Surabhi, yes it is us on Totalgadha.com. We started TG in 2006 and managed it until last year. In 2007 we started TathaGat, TG’s classroom program for CAT, with our partners:
http://totalgadha.com/mod/resource/view.php?id=1160

Rati started IMBB in 2009.. then I also shifted here. TG is now managed by Tathagat team. Rati is is out of CAT coaching but I am still a CAT trainer. In fact, just coming back after taking classes for the whole day :)

Reply

Nandini December 18, 2011 at 5:28 pm

This is amazing :) you guys must be so busy always because of running these two sites!! And thanks guys cuz TG helped me a lot during my CAT prep days :D although eventually I left the idea of doing an MBA. (I HATE maths lol)

Reply

Surabhi December 18, 2011 at 5:32 pm

Sanjeev,

So good to know that. Even better to know that you support your wife in her endeavors. My hubby’s name is Sanjay and even though he is a high ranking government official, he is still always there to support me in whatever I do. Its good that our society is maturing. :-)

Btw, I am now confused. Tathagat is managed by TG, Rati is out of CAT coaching.. then does this mean you both are on IMBB full time? Sorry if I am sounding too intruding but since I now actively write for IMBB and hope to become a full time member of the community, I am just curious to know. :-)

Reply

Sanjeev December 18, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Hi Surabhi,

I manage three companies actually, Tathagat, TG.com and IMBB. Previously Rati and I used to write articles on TG.com and solve problems but now we have people in Tathagat to do that so my job is just to oversee things. Rati has shifted from managing TG.com to running IMBB.

So Rati is full time on IMBB and I keep hopping between three things. :)

Reply

Surabhi December 18, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Oh ok.. nice.

So, you are a serial entrepreneur. ;-)

You know.. aaj hi I and Sanjay were looking into HBS (Harvard) and realized that entrepreneurs have a high chance of getting selected. So you see.. just in case if Harvard is gonna be your next stop.. ;)

Reply

Sanjeev December 18, 2011 at 5:56 pm

HBS has been the only B school that I have wanted to go to. Don’t know if I would find time in life to join it some day :| :|

Sanjeev December 18, 2011 at 5:43 pm

By the way, please do give my regards to your husband. :)

Sanjeev December 19, 2011 at 11:45 am

Thank you oopsii :)

If you wish to be an entrepreneur always start with two things- find something that you love to do and gather good people around you. Both are equally important. If you are not enjoying what you are doing you’d start hating your life. And good people have positive energy about them that will always carry you through. Rest of the things will automatically happen. :)

Aru December 19, 2011 at 11:59 am

i just read the ‘about us’ in TG..pretty cool. my husband is a computer engg too from Pune and he is also maha enthu abt starting something but like u said you need to have good ppl who share the passion to do the same thing else its just 1 person doing all the work and thats obviously no good..
