5 Holi Colours You Can Make At Home, The Natural Way!
Holi Hai! It’s the festival of colours, joy, and fun! Holi is a festival that is celebrated not just in North India – its spirit evokes joy and has encouraged people worldwide to celebrate it. However, the use of synthetic and chemical-heavy colours might cause more damage than they do fun. Here are 5 colours that are eco-friendly, completely natural and can easily be made at home!
Grind up some beetroots and let them dry in the sun for an intense pink colour! You can also boil them in water for a wet colour.
Brighten things up with yellow! Mix turmeric and besan powder in a 1:2 ratio for a vibrant dry yellow colour. For a wet colour, mix turmeric with water.
Fire up the fun! Grind dried up red rose petals or hibiscus to a fine powder for a brilliant dry red colour. You can also use vermillion (sindoor) for red. For a wet colour, you can mix these powders with water.
Dry, powdered, 100% pure henna makes for a great green! Henna is safe to use dry and can be easily brushed off if not mixed with water. For a wet green colour, mix mint leaf or spinach paste with water.
Brown is a good alternative to black. Mix henna powder and dried amla powder in a 1:4 ratio for a rich brown colour. It can also be used as a wet colour if you mix it with water!
