DIY: Nourishing Ancient Indian Hair pack recipe for Healthy scalp and Hair.

A girl with no proper hair has something proper to share before it goes in to a lair....(rest at the end..)

There is no Indian/Asian in this whole wide world who doesn't know the benefits of Hibiscus, Fenugreek and Lemon. Right?

Hibiscus, Fenugreek and Lemon have been used in India from ancient times for the health of hair and scalp. They promote hair growth, Prevent dandruff and make hair shiny/lustrous. The ladies of that time had gorgeous hair which NO Modern Scientific formulations can give you.

Forget ancient ladies..My Mom and her siblings had super duper voluminous lustrous hair that anyone can die for! How? My grandma used to dunk their heads in many natural homemade recipes on a regular basis. But, sadly.. she passed away without passing on any of this knowledge to any of her heirs. :,(

As a child, i used to watch her make the shikakai powder in which she used to put these three ingredients without fail. Remember, only Country/Native Hibiscus works for this. Hybrid varieties and dehydrated petals are useless as they don't have that slime which provides norishment and also holds this pack together.

Fortunately, i have a Country/Native Hibiscus plant in my backyard and a few days ago, i harvested nearly 12 Hibiscus flowers. *yay* So, i am sharing this Simple Nourishing Hibiscus hair pack recipe that i made using my fresh harvest.
Credit for the Red glow on my cheeks and nose goes to those lovely vibrant flowers who radiated their colour on me. <3 and as a bonus, they even decided to slap a little of their yellow pollen on my face : D
You can also see that there are roses in between my hibiscus. I'll tell you what i did with them both together in another post. ;)

  • 4-6 Fresh Country Hibiscus flowers.
  • A Fistful of Methi/Fenugreek seeds.
  • Juice from one fresh Lime/Lemon.
  • 1/2 a glass of water.

How to do it: 
  • Boil Methi/Fenugreek seeds in water for atleast 10-15 minutes. Or, you can even soak them overnight. In this case, just bring the water to a boil and proceed to next step.
  • Once they turn soft and mushy, Add the hibiscus petals and turn off the stove.
  • Let the mixture cool down.
  • Now, add juice of One lemon and you can see the murky looking liquid turning to bright scarlet! Wonders of nature <3 

Before lemon juice.
After lemon juice.
  • Put the whole mixture in to a blender and run it until it becomes a smooth paste.
  •'s done! 
My artistic cravings peaked up when i saw a pile of ash lying in a corner. So, went ahead and took this shot :P How did you like it?

Apply to both scalp and to hair till the ends. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes and then wash it off with a good genuine natural shampoo. Condition if necessary. You will start seeing the difference right from the first use. :)

*Make sure to use Native/Non-hybrid Hibiscus flowers for maximum benefit.

* You can even add Yogurt to this mixture for extra benefits.
* Make sure that the mixture is smooth. If it is chunky, it will fall out.
*Use it regularly to see maximum benefit.

If you try it out, i would be really happy to hear your feedback. :)

P.S: This is why i did not post a colour version of this pic on Instagram. Doesn't it look like minced meat allover my head? :P And, this was the previous time i made it when it turned out all chunky. :-/ So, remember to make it smooth.

The MS Chronicles: A year with MS.

How time flies...

In mystery it lies...

It has been a year since i got diagnosed with MS (Multiple sclerosis). And, it changed my life beyond what i could ever imagine.

It shattered all my dreams to infinite pieces that could never be put together ever again.

I felt that every moment was my last. Every single day, i prayed for a chance to reverse everything. 

I was like:
 *Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars...i could really use a wish right now..wish right now..wish right now...Yeah, I could use a dream or a genie or a wish..
To go back to a place much simpler than this

*BoB ft. Haley williams: Airplanes*

I wished i never had to go through all of this. I felt trapped.

I tried so hard not to give up.

But, lately did i see what lessons it had been teaching me.

This whole episode of MS taught me how to see and feel the Beauty of the World that i was Trapped in. 

I became a 'Spider girl' of sorts.. ;D

Meaning...I started to Live like a Spider who never feels Trapped in it's own web.
*I captured this picture of a spider hanging so peacefully in it's heavenly dew drop studded web last winter.*
Just like this spider, I'm hanging in there enjoying the droplets of strengthening family bonds and people's selflessness and compassion being added to my web. It is giving me a chance to re-discover humanity which i had lost all hopes in.

Yes, i did encounter a lot of negative humans too. But, after a while i just started to consider them as 'Evolutionary Mistakes' and learned to ignore them.

  I am building my own beautiful web-world with every fragment of this new life i am getting to experience.
 *This picture signifies my expanding web-world*

It taught me that there is much more to life than just a Successful career, Materialistic possessions and a Conventionally Beautiful Face/Body.

I've embraced Primitive hacks i.e., Love and Happiness for survival.

This ruthless progressive disease may throw new challenges in my way any second. And i am preparing to hang on...

For now, I am happy in my own world...waiting excitedly to experience new sparkling droplets of life.

Read these posts to know more about my health condition: Muliple sclerosis and me. The 'torture'..sorry..the 'symptom' fest. World MS day.
*All pictures were captured by Me except for the last one which was captured by my husband*

Dr.Hauschka Lip Care Stick Review.

I want to go to the top of the world and shout my heart out that "This is the Best, Magical and Most Wonderful piece of creation Ever!
That's how madly I Love This Lip care stick by Dr.Hauschka.

A little about this wonderful Brand: Dr.Hauschka is a genuine German natural cruelty free cosmetics brand created by Dr.Rudolf Hauschka in 1935 under WALA Foundation. Dr.Hauschka had to go through many obstacles regarding his natural formulations because no one back then were ready to accept that it was possible to formulate safe and effective products without synthetic chemicals. So, the products were actually launched in 1967 after collaborating with  Elisabeth sigmund. They use Renewable Raw materials from their own Bio-dynamic cultivation projects. They follow Sustainable business practices. No Lies. No Greenwashing.

Price: 15$ 

For Indian Shoppers, currently it is available on for 1,599/- INR with Free shipping.


My Experience: After reading awesome reviews, my interest in this product seriously hiked. I actually bought this product with very little expectations. Because, no lip care product has ever been able to help/rescue my dehydrated and super chappy lips. 

But my my...This little yellow tube here, proved otherwise. My lips became super soft and supple right from the first application! It's Amazing how it healed/repaired and gave life to my Dead lips. From that day onwards, this little yellow sunshine stick earned my HG status! <3 (i wish blogger had emojis! :P)

And, it smells like warm Rose with a tiny hint of paan(betel leaf)! Delish happiness. <3
  • Repairs and Heals Super Chapped lips..
  • Deeply Moisturises.
  • Smells of delicious roses.
  • Feels rich and silky after application.
  • Doesn't feel waxy at all.
  • Non-Toxic.
  • Paraben free. Mineral oil free. Silicone free. PEG free.
  • Cruelty Free.
  • Organic/Renewable ingredients from their own Bio-dynamic farms. 
  • Eco-Friendly.
  • Biodegradable.
  • The lip balm stick can become too hard in Winters. But, nothing a little warming up with fingers can not solve.
My Rating: 5/5 :)
 Do i Recommend? Yes! Yes! and Yesssss! Try it to Believe it!

P.S: Guys, I am really Sorry for not posting regularly. I was not keeping well. Had to deal with Brand new MS symptoms. :-/ Now, i am feeling a little happies :)

This is a part of "The Monsoon 'Rose'mance" Series.
