The tradition of playing Holi with Gulal is very old. We all like to play Holi with colours. If Holi is played with full safety and joy, then it has its own fun. Chemical dyes available in the market are very harmful to our skin. Playing Holi with chemical colours can cause acne, allergies or irritation in the skin. If you want to play Holi this time with homemade herbal colours, then we have brought tips for you, so that you can easily make herbal colours at your home. So let's know how to make the herbal colours.
To make green coloured gulal, first dry and grind neem leaves and then make a powder or paste of it. The use of neem is considered very beneficial for the skin. Neem has antibacterial and antiallergic properties which will help in getting rid of problems like pimples, acne as well. Apart from neem, spinach can also be dried to make a green colour.
Use Palash flowers to make orange-coloured gulal. A day before Holi, you can dry the flowers of Palash and make a powder of it and make orange colour. Apart from this, for wet orange colour, either boil the flowers of Palash or keep them soaked in water overnight.
You can mix red sandalwood powder with flour or maida to make dry red colour. You can also use vermilion instead of sandalwood. You can soak beetroot or rose petals or hibiscus petals overnight to make a wet red colour.
If you want the yellow colour to play Holi, mix Turmeric and Gram Flour. Both Turmeric and Gram Flour are beneficial for our skin. You can mix turmeric and water for wet yellow colour. Apart from this, you can also make yellow colour at home by soaking marigold flowers in water.
To make the purple colour, dissolve the juice of black grapes or Jamun in water. Violet color can also be prepared by grinding beetroot and mixing it with flour.
Pomegranate is not only effective in eating but also in making pink colour. If you want a moist pink colour, then mix pomegranate seeds in water.
