Curcuma aromatica is a plant that grows up to 16 inches in height. The perennial part of the plant dies during late autumn and the rhizome remains dormant during winter. During monsoon, the inflorescence appears and the plant grows rapidly. Kasturi turmeric grows in abundance in western ghats and whenever we go trekking into the forest, I just love to admire the beautiful pink wild turmeric flowers.

The rhizomes are cream in color with a strong distinctive fragrance. If you have even a small piece of curcuma aromatica | kasthuri manjal | wild turmeric in the room, the whole room will smell very nice. In India, kasturi turmeric is mainly cultivated in West Bengal and Kerala. Kasthuri Manjal/ Wild turmeric is very very fragrant and you could have easily guessed that it is my favorite among all the turmeric varieties, as I have even named my blog wild turmeric.

Due it’s amazing anti bacterial, anti inflammatory, wound healing and antimelanogenic properties kasturi manjal has wide uses for skin and face care. Each variety of turmeric have their own uses and health benefits but when it comes to external applications, wild turmeric is the king.

Wild turmeric treats a wide variety of skin diseases and traditionally has been used for treating acne and acne scars, for unwanted hair removal, eczema, hyper pigmentation, dark circles, pimples, skin whitening (lightens spots and scars) and for glowing skin.

How To Use Kasturic Turmeric For Skin Care?

The best way to use kasturi tumeric for skin care is in the form of face packs and bath powders. It can be used for both oily and dry skin. If you have dry skin, use it along with conditioning ingredients like curd or milk. If you have oily skin, use it along with rose water.

Difference Between Turmeric & Kasturi Turmeric? 

The main difference between kasthuri manjal from other variety of turmerics is it does not stain the skin like the regular turmeric, and is also very fragrant than the normal turmeric. We don’t use kasturi turmeric for cooking, we only use it for external applications.

Where To Buy Kasturi Turmeric?

You can easily buy kasturi turmeric powder in almost all the departmental stores in India, you can also order it online too. But if you want to buy the dried kasturi turmeric rhizomes, visit a herbal shop. We get kasturi turmeric soap and ready kasturi turmeric face packs in the shops too.

kasturi pasupu health benefitsHow To Make Kasturi Turmeric Powder At Home?

I like to buy organic dried kasthuri manjal and make my own kasturi turmeric powder at home. To make kasturi turmeric powder, sun dry them till they get crisp and while still crisp from sun drying powder in a dry mixer, sieve and store in an airtight box. Dried kasthuri manjal stores well, buy it in bulk, sun dry and store it. Whenever you want to use, you can powder it after sun
drying but always sundry before making kasturi turmeric powder. This way, kasturi turmeric powder retains the freshness longer.

Kasturi Turmeric Side Effects:

The only side effect of using kasturi manjal on the skin is the burning sensation sensation. Instead of using kasturi turmeric mixed with water alone using it along with other conditioning ingredients like rose water or curd will greatly reduce the burning sensation.

If you have very sensitive skin, use kasturi turmeric in the form of bath powder. Even babies and pregnant women can use kasthuri manjal on their skin at least weekly once or twice mixed with yogurt and little bit of coconut oil before bath to prevent all skin infections…..

5 Top Ways To Use Kasturi Turmeric (Kasthuri Turmeric) For Skin Care:

1. Kasthuri Manjal & Rose Water Face Pack For Skin Brightening & Dark Circles:

kasthuri manjal for skin brightening

I haven’t come across any ingredient that changes our skin color dramatically. Whenever I see an advertisement promising fair skin, I only think how misleading these advertisements are, spending billions of dollars to make us believe something that is not true. But there are natural ingredients that brighten our skin and kasthuri manjal tops that list.

A simple homemade face pack made with kasthuri manjal powder and rose water will brighten our skin considerably. If you have dry skin mix it with curd. Use this face pack weekly twice for best results. This face pack will lighten dark circles too….

2. Kasthuri Manjal For Unwanted Facial Hair Removal:

kasthuri manjal for hair removal

Regular use of kasthuri manjal on the face as a face pack helps to retard facial hair growth. In our  village, many homes have a small stone along with a small piece of turmeric in the bathroom. When women have their bath, they rub the turmeric on the stone and apply the paste on their face, this keeps the face blemish free and also removes facial hair.

Traditionally for unwanted hair removal, we mix korai kizhangu powder, kuppaimeni powder and kasturi turmeric powder in equal quantities along with water to form a paste. We apply this paste and wait for it to almost dry and then gently rub in circular motions to remove it from our skin. This pack weakens facial hair and will help remove it naturally.

3. Kasthuri Manjal For Glowing Skin (Babies):

kasthuri manjal powder benefits

In our village, if a women gets pregnant we start preparing for the babies arrival months before delivery. One of the main things we do is make bath powder. We start preparing nalangu powder | nalangu maavu | bath powder during the last trimester.

It is a powder made with kasthuri manjal and other herbs that keep the babies skin blemish free. We don’t use kasthuri manjal for boy babies, we only use it for girl babies as it reduces the hair growth on their skin along with keeping the skin blemish free and glowing. You can find the recipe for it here.

4. Kasthuri Manjal for Acne & Acne Scars:

kasturi turmeric face pack

Kasthuri manjal is amazing for treating acne and acne scars. Unlike chemical filled acne creams sold in the market, kasthuri manjal acne treatment is very effective for treating acne and acne scars as it does not have any side effects.

A homemade face pack made with holy basil leaves and kasthuri manjal is very effective for acne and acne scars. You can fine the link for the recipe here. I have used regular fat variety of turmeric for the pack, but using kasthuri manjal is even more effective.

5. Kasthuri Manjal Bath Powder For Hperpigmentation & Eczema:

kasthuri manjal for pimples

We make a wonderful bath powder at home with kasthuri manjal. It is made with white turmeric, kasthuri manjal/ wild turmeric, rose petals and green gram dhal. This bath powder is very fragrant, prevent skin diseases and does not strip of skin’s natural oils.

You can find the recipe for it here. But make sure to sun dry the bath powder ingredients well before powdering else the bath powder will spoil easily. This bath powder will treat hyper pigmentation and is also a good remedy for mild forms of eczema.

Ask her to use the bath powder which contains kasthuri manjal regularly to see results (recipe in the blog)…A combination of equal quantities of turmeric and kuppaimeni leaves also when used as a face pack gives good results for retarding facial hair growth…

    • Ramya Venkateshwaran
      February 15, 2015 / 5:51 pm

      Hi Dheepika,Kasthuri manjal usually does not cause any burning sensation. If it does most of the time it is because of the way it was ground, if it was ground in a machine which has got even a tiny bit of spiciness in it, it will cause burning sensation. Other reason is if your skin is extremely dry and if you apply any face pack it might burn. If it is due to the second reason try applying it with fresh curd…..

Kasthuri manjal treats pimples very effectively and increase the amount of water you drink daily to prevent the face getting oily. Hope this helps….

    • Ramya Venkateshwaran
      March 23, 2015 / 4:53 pm

      I am surprised that the powder has no smell of the herbs, no matter how much you dry the herbs they will retain at least a slight smell. For using it on babies, it is better to collect the herbs yourself. Start with the ones that you can get easily, it is even better to omit certain herbs in the recipe that you don't get than using powders that are of not good quality…

      To make kasthuri turmeric powder, wash the raw kasthuri turmeric really well to get rid of any dirt and then cut into small pieces and sun dry till crisp. Once completely dry, powder it in dry mixer, sieve and store in an airtight box. You can also use the raw kasthuri manjal for skin care by grinding the washed root to a fine paste in a mixer. You can add yogurt and besan and apply as a face pack too….

      That is because turmeric increases the skin's sensitivity to sun in some people, I think your skin is like that. Try not to use turmeric based treatments before going out in the sun, better still do it in the night before going to bed that way it won't darken the skin. Hope this helps…..

Though these treatments will reduce the spots, chemical dye will continue causing it….

      Kasthuri turmeric by itself stings when applied on the skin but if you combine it with lemon it will sting even more. Mix turmeric with milk or yogurt, you won't have the burning sensation….

      There is no ingredient that will change the skin tone we are born with drastically but kasthuri turmeric will clear the skin of all blemishes resulting in brighter skin tone and the best way to use kasthuri turmeric is by using it as a pack by mixing it with milk or as a bath powder…

      Though lemon juice is good for the face and neck and is a natural bleach, lemon juice by itself is very irritating on the skin. Always try to mix it with other ingredients and use…..

    • Ramya Venkateshwaran
      May 19, 2015 / 5:25 pm

      I have read many articles claiming that turmeric helps warts, give it a try. To use apply turmeric paste directly on the wart but start with the ones on the neck and if you fell it is working then apply it on the face. We also use amman pacharisi plant for warts, you can read about it in the blog. And you can also try pure tea tree oil (apply a drop directly on the wart) or apple cider vinegar, both are very good for warts…

      Kasturi turmeric is very good for the skin and can be used everyday. It might increase the skin sensitivity to sun for some people, if your skin is like that apply it in the evenings. It might cause burning sensation if used separately, always mix kasthuri turmeric powder with yogurt and use…

      Hi, It takes quite some time of regular use of turmeric to remove facial hair, the time it takes depends on the thickness of the hair. I would suggest waxing the upper lip, do it in the beauty parlour as it will be hard for you to wax by yourself. It will be painful at first but very soon you will get used to it. Continue using turmeric too, the hair will get scantier with regular use…

      Kasthuri manjal can be used for the whole body but I would suggest using it along with green gram dal and rose petals as a bath powder, I have a recipe for bath powder in the blog, please do check it. When you use kasthuri manjal as bath powder along with other ingredients, it is easier to use and won't dry out the skin too. It is hard to find whether kasthuri manjal powder is of good quality by just looking at it, the best way is to buy the turmeric and grind it into a powder ourselves..

      Usually all turmeric powders last for years, mine usually lasts for almost 2 years and by then it usually gets over. Usually after a long storage (more than 2.5 to 3 years) they lose their color and then slowly they lose their flavor but rarely do they expire. But they can spoil if there is even a trace of moisture….

      Kasthuri manjal is the best variety of turmeric for skin, I would suggest using nalangu maavu for him which is a mixture of herbs and manjal(you can find the recipe for it in the blog)instead of kasthuri manjal directly. Continue using it for him, it will keep his skin blemish free. Most of the Aloe Vera gel we get in the markets here in India are not 100 % pure. I would suggest growing your one Aloe Vera plant at home in a small pot and then use the fresh aloe Vera gel to massage for him.

      Kasturi manjal does not stain much and even if it does it is barely noticeable. I would suggest trying an other brand..

      Hi Suma, you can use kasthuri turmeric for her, use it in the form of bath powder. Try this bath powder for her, it will improve the skin complexion well: https://youtu.be/Jba5dRpERnc

      Both are effective but I would suggest using kasturi turmeric with curd to prevent burning sensation…

    Can we consume/eat daily an inch of raw Kasturi manjal for chronic bacterial infection treatment? Will it cause ulcer or any other side effect?

      Kasturi manjal has antibacterial properties and will not cause any side effects when consumed but it has a strong flavor which is why we don't use it in cooking and it will be hard to consume too. I would suggest consuming turmeric tea made with regular turmeric. It will have the same benefits…

      Hi Lavanya, We always use kasturi manjal in bath powders for children, when we use it as a bath powder along with other ingredients there will not be any burning sensation at all. You can find the link to bath powder recipe in the post and you can order kasturi turmeric online through Amazon. Since she has dry skin, mix the bath powder in boiled rice water and use, it will condition her skin well….

      You can use even daily, it will not do any harm to your skin at all. Try to use at least weekly thrice for best results….

      We usually use kasturi turmeric only for external application. I would suggest taking normal turmeric powder along with milk and black pepper for improving immunity. Black pepper helps increases the bio availability of turmeric many fold…

    Hi Ramya,Thank you for this lovely informative post. I've recently purchased pure concentrated Kasturi Mangal essential from ebay. Can I add this to my daily SPF 30+ face moisturizer and go out in the sun? I would be most obliged for your opinion. Thanks.

      Hi, For some people kasturi turmeric essential oil can increase skin sensitivity to sun. Also though not like turmeric essential oil, kasturi turmeric essential oil does stain the skin a very light yellow. I would suggest mixing kasturi turmeric essential oil with a carrier oil and using it for massage, it will greatly improve the skin texture….
