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.

5 Top Ways To Use Kasturi Turmeric (Kasthuri Turmeric) For Skin Care:
1. Kasthuri Manjal & Rose Water Face Pack For Skin Brightening & Dark Circles:
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:
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):
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:
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:
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.

Hi Ramyaplease tell us how to make baby bath powder?
Hi, I will try to post bath powder for babies soon….:)
I get a burning sensation if I wash off the face pack with hot water or if I leave it for a longer time on my face….does this make any significance? ??
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…..

I purchased herbs in powder separately form online from tamilnadu, but their is no fragrance it smells like dry leaves, tell me is it pure, I want to use it as bath powder for my 18th month old baby for facial hair
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…
Thanks, but I live in delhi so I won't get any of the herbs here, so I purchased on line from sath yam herbs tamilnadu, as u said if v poke our nose then it smells slightly.

Dear Mam, I used to mix kasthuri manjal powder and dried orange peel powder equally with water and apply it on my face,hands and neck and leave it for 30 min and then wash it.I have been doing this daily for 1 week.But after that i feel my face color has gone a little dark.So I have stopped that for more than 4 days. regarding this I have been surfing the net, everywhere I found as it is good. But y is that difference for me. Need your advice in this. Shall I continue this method. I am totally confused. Awaiting for your reply.
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….

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…

Hello madam, thankyou for lovely post. Can we use kasthuri manjal for whole body wash daily. I live in a cold climate place. Instead of soap. Or can I alternate between soap n kasturi manjal. How do we detect the quality of kasturi manjal powder when buying in shops since we r planning to use it as a body wash. I remember seeing grannies using it on a daily base. Or is it safe to buy kasturi manjel rub it n use it daily. Pls help. Thank you.
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..

I have a slight inflammation on my little finger hence asking if I can use the turmeric as a body wash. I try to take curry manjal with milk daily but it increases my body heat. So can I atleast apply kasturi manjal outside as a body wash.Thanksyour reply will be helpful.Sivagami
Try applying thick turmeric poultice only on the infected finger for just 15 to 20 minutes everyday using fresh turmeric paste, within a day or two the inflammation will subside. Then for regular use you can use turmeric along with other cooling spices like green gram dal, it will not increase the body temperature. I have a recipe for making the bath powder in the blog please check it out….
Mam,A follow up question. Does using kasturi manjal powder for daily bathing, will it increase the body heat?If yes, pls suggest ways to overcome the increase in body heat.Thank you so muchSivagami
I have not had any issues using kasthuri turmeric but if you feel it does increase the body heat, I would suggest using it as a bath powder along with other ingredients like in homemade bath powder recipe in the blog. You can also mix it with curd and use…

hi madam, i am a men i have pimples in my face and have dandruff in my head,my friend said about kasthuri turmeric and green powder are good for avoid dandruff and pimples,but i heard about kasthuri turmeric reduce the facial hair growth. so ,please help me managing these problems…
It takes daily application of turmeric for months together for hair removal for women even with very scanty hair. Since men have very coarse hair, it will not reduce facial hair growth at all. I would suggest turmeric and holy basil face pack from the blog for acne, you can find the link here: https://www.wildturmeric.net/2014/05/turmeric-for-acne-benefits-diy-recipe.html and I would suggest fenugreek hair mask from the blog for dandruff.

Hi, I would suggest using turmeric and holy basil face pack from the blog for acne regularly everyday, it will greatly help acne. The pack burns initially when applied that is normal, try using it regularly to see results. I would suggest using this powder for face wash: https://www.wildturmeric.net/2013/09/traditional-indian-bath-powder.html. For your baby girly nalangu maavu (recipe in the blog) will work well, since it has turmeric in it, with regular use it will retard the facial hair growth.

can kasturi Manjal powder expire?
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….
Hi mam. My baby girl is 10 months now… After using nalangu maavu can v use soap and after bath can v apply lotion n cream as usual ???

Hi Madam,My son is now 3 months old and his hands and legs are turning very dark. I have been using kasturi manjal during bath but this does not seem to lighten his skin tone. Would request you to help me understand how to use it effectively to see good results. Is there any brand of turmeric recommended for effective results? Also i am not finding any aloe vera gel available for a 3 month old baby. Kindly help madam.
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.

Kasthuri manjal does cause burning sensation and especially some people experience intense burning. I would suggest mixing kasthuri manjal with either curd or milk or buttermilk depending on your skin type, it will greatly reduce the burning sensation. You can leave it on till it dries out and then wash it off…

Hi ramya di my skin is itching little bit using wild turmeric. Is it natural or does it not suit my skin. I am using it everyday mixing with holy basils leaves neem leaves sandalwood and multani powder and few drops of rose water.
Are you sure it is not burning sensation? Because wild turmeric might cause burning sensation in lot of people and in my experience fresh holy basil leaves also causes burning sensation but not itchiness and it does no harm at all. I would suggest switching over to regular turmeric powder and skip the fresh holy basil and see how your skin reacts to it…

Turmeric increases the skin sensitivity in some people so some people might tan easily but since you are using it at night it will not do any harm. Burning sensation while using kasturi turmeric is normal always use it with curd or rose milk depending on your skin type…
