Do you believe in treating your skin using DIY skincare tricks comprising of organic products? I have something really exciting to share with you, if you do. I recently came across the Instagram page of BLEND IT RAW APOTHECARY. It is engaged in selling organic products that can either be used directly or can be put in your at-home skincare treatment recipes. I have been using their Vetiver root powder for a couple of months, here’s how I found it to be 😊 –
Price- INR 150/- for 60 gm
About- Grown naturally in India, Vetiver is widely known in Ayurveda to provide cooling properties to the body. With a pleasant earthy aroma, it will relax and calm down your mind while providing additional benefits to your skin. Our organic finely milled Khus or Vetiver Root Powder comes from a small community in South India that makes handmade products using Vetiver. By purchasing our Vetiver Bath Loofah or Vetiver Root Powder, you are not only supporting us but also the small group of people who are handmaking these products from Organic Vetiver/Khus roots.
My Experience- Whenever I hear the word “Khus” it takes me back to my childhood, when it was the most commonly used flavouring agent in Sharbats (you can relate to it if you’re a 90s kid) 😛 . Little did I know that it not only is a cooler but also an excellent ingredient in skincare. I was wonderstruck when I read about the benefits of vetiver root powder.
Vetiver has antibacterial properties and is helpful in calming and soothing the skin. It can be used in making a number of DIY skin treatments. You can either use it directly or mix it up with other ingredients as per your choice. I sometimes simply take out one spoonful of this powder, mix it with refrigerated rosewater and apply it on the skin. It gives a bit of tingling sensation to me at first, but cools down my skin in the next few seconds. Skin feels super cool while it’s on. I wash it off after some 6-7 minutes once it dries up completely, and skin feels very good post wash.
You can mix it up with curd, aloevera gel or whatever you like. You can put this powder in your face mask, face scrub, body mask, body scrub for that added cooling effect. Your skin will certainly Thank you! 🙂
Wrapping it up- To sum it up, Blend it raw’s Vetiver root powder is an product that serves multiple purposes. It’s priced decently for the amount of powder provided. Thumbs up! They have an amazing product range comprising of oils, hydrosols, butters, herbs, powders, clays and more.
