Make Your Own Colors

 
1. The flame of the forest (Butea monosperma), known as Tesu, Palash or Dhak in vernacular languages, is the source of the wonderful, traditional colour for Holi. The flowers are soaked overnight in water and can also be boiled to obtain a fragrant yellowish orange colored water. Legend says that Lord Krishna used to play Holi with Tesu flowers, and the flowers are also have a lot of medicinal properties.
2. Boil flowers petals of Semul/Silk Cotton (Red variety bombax ceiba) (both Tesu and Semul bloom during February March) in water.
3. Collect and dry the stalks of Harashringar/Parijatak (Nyctanthes arbon-tristis) flowers during the early winter season. Soak them in water to get a pleasant orange colour.
4. Mix a pinch of Sandalwood powder from Ujjain (also used in our temples) in 1 litre of water for an instant, beautiful and fragrant saffron colour.
5. Soak a few stalks of Saffron/Kesar in 2 table spoons of water. Leave for few hours and grind to make a fine paste. Dilute with water for desired colour strength. Though expensive, it is excellent for our skin.
