    1. Hi Pallavi,

      A relative got me the sandalwood powder from Munnar, Kerala. You can try at your local Lepakshi emporiums that sell original sandalwood barks. Ambi haldi is available in many brands, or you can ask for Kasturi manjal at any kerala store in your area 🙂

  8. Hi Jomol,

    My skin pretty much reacts to everything with acne… It tolerates only Kasturi manjal and Sandalwood powder. I used to use this pack until few yrs back with good results.. But never added Honey to it..i used to add Neem paste to it with rose water.. Now ill try this with honey…
    Thanks for reminding me of this.

  9. nice face pack Jomol.. but getting hands on Kasturi manjal is a bit difficult in Pune, are you aware of any place here, where i can get it??

  10. Hi Jomol! I have a question about sandalwood. What kind should we buy? I had read that red sandalwood was great for skin, but I tried a mask of red sandalwood and water and it left my face all red! (I have really fair skin). I had to scrub really hard with soap to remove the red from my skin. Did I do something wrong? Could the powder have gone bad, or is it not the right kind? Thank you so much for your advice!
