- Put 2-3 vala or vetiver roots, 1-2 tulsi stocks, 1-2 goonja or rosary seeds and put them in the bottle.
Khus roots don't have many health benefits but they are more popular for their medicinal properties. They are known to be sedatives and has aromatic as well as antiseptic properties. Some of vetiver essential oil constituents include benzoic acid, furfural, valerenol, terpinen-4-ol, and khusimol.
- Pour coconut or mustard oil into the bottle and leave it to soak in the herbs for 48 hrs.
Mustard oil has strong anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties which is why it is often recommended by experts to remedy damaged, dull and dry hair. It cleans your scalp and keeps it free of infections as well as dandruff, nourishing your hair from the root to tip.
Invite your girlfriends or cousins over and give each other a good head, neck and shoulder massage. Enjoy chai & bhajiya while at it, give 'duniya ko gaali' and feel happy for having each other in this 'zaalim duniya'. Also for having these wonderful herbs.
Leave the oil on overnight and wash. No need for conditioner. Use the weather and not the blower to dry.
Leave yourself impressed and find yourself so beautiful. This solution is great for hair fall too. You will find these at local farms and ayurvedic stores across India.
