Hi friends eyes are the most important feature that can make you look glamorous 👁👩🏻… When it comes to eye makeup, kajal or kohl is the most important product. But what is a commercial kajal, eye liner n mascara made up of??? 📢 Check this out to know the ingredients n the harm they might cause to your eyes!

I have already tried the almond khol and mascara, which I have been using from many months now, the mascara is just perfect but I wasn’t fully satisfied with the Kajal outcome, though the colour was perfect black it had some not so fine particles that would cause a little discomfort to the eye when applied. After lots of attempts I finally got the perfect Kajal done in a very authentic Indian Ayurvedic way!

What is required to prepare Khol powder:

  • Earthen / bronze diya/deepam
  • A cotton wick
  • Lots of castor oil to burn the lamp
  • Lots of almonds to burn
  • A sheep edge knife or long needle to hold almond
  • A copper plate
  • 2 tumbles for support
