I have grown up playing holi, and the colours, the gulaal fascinated me always! So Much so that I would go and buy almost all the courts on the shelf and carefully arrange heaps of these bright happy colours on my thali and get ready for Holi like a happy girl all. Set to Play with pichkari(Water Gun) and Gulaal. I remember the next day of school was all. About who. Has maximum coloured skin to show! But it was those harmful metallic colours used freely in earlier times
Years passed by and the awareness about the harmful content of the colours, and I have never seen my kids been introduced to these harmful. Metallic colours, and they always saw Gulaal as primary colour.
Gulaal also saw wrath of times due to harmful base used and synthetic colours not agreeing with the skin bringing in allergies or eversion to play holi with colours.
But I always feel the essence of Holi is colours. Tried using flowers everytime while playing holi but the charm Of that colour speck on cheeks by your beloved and friends is just a different feeling.
This year I happened to learn this new innovative method of using vegetables to bring in these colours with all the purity and safety and make it just perfect for Our holi.
Try it and I can bet you will make loads and gift it around to make Your holi most colourful this year.
Made with all vegetables and herbs this is a safe gulaal( colour), and is not harmful even on egestion unless u use the synthetic essences for aroma.
