How to make organic colours
Save a trip to the parlour by using green coloured henna powder (mehendi) this Holi. Either use it separately or mix it with an equal quantity of any suitable flour to get a lovely and natural green shade. Make sure to use pure henna that does not have amla mixed in it, as this would be brown in colour. Dry henna will not leave colour on your face and can be easily brushed off, but when mixed with water it will leave a slight colour, thereby making it a fast colour.
Dry and finely powder Gulmohur tree leaves or crush the tender leaves of the Wheat plant to obtain a natural green colour for Holi. The colour can also be obtained by mixing a fine paste of green leafy vegetables like spinach (palak), coriander (dhaniya) or mint (pudina) in water.
