Herbal bath powder is the term which we have been listening since a long time ,some may know about it ,some may not,some may be using it,and some may want to use it but cant due to the non availability.So here I am sharing you the recipe of herbal bath powder taught to me by my grand mom[love you ammamma].To people who dont know about it ,this is nothing but a natural dry scrub wash for our body,which cleanses,soothes and scrubs at the same time.
Essential Ingredients-[all in powder forms]
Sugandha kachuralu[Curcuma zedoaria,Shati in Sanskrit]-20grams.
Normal turmeric[haldi]-5grams[use less as it stains the skin].
Rose petal powder-20grams.
lemon peel powder-20 grams.
Neem leaf powder-20grams[acts as preservative so this herbal bath powder have long shelf life].
Essential oil of your choice.
Green gram powder-100grams .
Chick pea powder[besan]-100grams.
The consistency of base ingredients should neither be too fine nor too coarse ,just like your normal body scrub.
Mix all the essential and base ingredients well so that every thing is mixed properly,and store it in a dry air tight jar,this mixture will last you for almost 3 months even if used regularly[In addition you can also add some camphor for a nice fragrance]. If you feel the mixture is too strong ,dilute it by adding some more base ingredients.
