Kasturi Manjal

Musk Turmeric is indeed a natural gift to us. The paste made out this using water, if applied on your face will bring colour and complexion. It also effectively removes pimples. The paste made out of Musk Turmeric using milk can be applied on the skin of newborn babies before bathing, which will give a shining effect to their body. It guards them from skin diseases as well. Turmeric cream was being used in India, since time immemorial, to keep us free from skin problems and avoid pimples. Be it Dry skin or Oily skin, the use of musk turmeric gives a natural look to it. This medicine is purely vegetarian and does not have any side effects. It is advised to use these kind of natural gifts rather than other unhealthy creams and products available in the market.…

kasturi manjal is just a kind of turmeric. Manjal is turmeric in Tamil. Kasturi is a local name given to a kind of turmeric. I'm not sure what it's called in other parts, but it's absolutely good for hair removal, the only bad part being, it stains your skin for a while. After you apply and wash off, the orange colour remains for 4 - 5 days. If you still dont mind using it, all you need to do is make a paste and apply in on your body. If you do it regularly for a few years, hair growth will surely decrease and over a period of time, hair growth will stop. My mother has been doing this for as long as I remember, and she has absolutely no hair on her legs at all.

Kasturi mangal is wild turmeric. You can make a paste with it in water or rose water or yoghurt and apply. When it gets dry, wash it off.

Kasthuri Manjal, aka, Turmeric, is applied to babies when they are young along with 'Kadalai Maavu', to make their skin soft, and to avoid using soaps at a young age. It is believed that it also reduces hair growth, although the claim is not supported by any scientific theories.

Turmeric is a great antiseptic, and can be used in face packs, or even to wash your face with. But I dont think it removes body hair.

Hope this helps. Viji
