Multani Mitti (fuller’s earth) is a widely used ingredient (especially in Indian households) for various beauty tasks.
- Nourishes your Hair
Mix 3 tablespoons of Multani Mitti with few drops of lemon and amla juice and an egg. Apply the mixture on your head and leave it for about 20-30 minutes. Once done, shampoo. Voila! Your hair and soft, silky and smooth.
- Body Wash
Did you know Multani Mitti is capable of replacing your everyday shower gel? Mix Multani Mitti with 1 cup oatmeal powder, neem powder, Chandan (sandalwood powder), haldi and milk/curd. Store this mixture in a bottle and use it everyday for a glowing skin.
- Get rid of Pimples & Blemishes
In order to get rid of blemishes or pimple marks, mix Multani Mitti with tomato juice and add a pinch of haldi (turmeric) to it. Apply it for few minutes and then wash. You will see noticeable difference in a few days.
- A Cooling Agent
Mix with water and apply the paste on the entire body. Leave it for few minutes and then wash it off. This paste keeps your body temperature in control and also deals with sunburns. Avoid applying on the chest region as its high cooling property can cause respiratory problems.
- Avoid using it if you have a dry skin. It can make your skin drier.
- Do not consume Multani Mitti as it can cause kidney stones and clog your intestinal passage.
- Store in a refrigerator in a tight jar away from moisture.
