Romantic Reds

Red is the color of festivity, vibrancy, energy and love. It is also one of the most common colors used in Holi. Prepare healthy red powder and color at home using these simple tips:

  • Dry red rose petals completely by spreading them on some newspaper. Direct sunlight quickens this process. Grind these rose petals and use this red powder as 'gulal' to smear the faces of your friends.
  • Soak red rose petals in water overnight. Filter the rose water in the morning. This rose water is soothing to eyes and can also be used as a deodorant on a daily basis.
  • The red sandalwood powder can be used as Red Gulal. It is beneficial for skin and is often used in face packs.
  • Boil two teaspoon of red sandalwood powder in five liters of water. Dilute it with twenty liters of water to get red color solution.
  • Dry red hibiscus flowers in the shade and grind them to a lovely red color. One can experiment with different shades of red by adding any flour to the red powder. It will also increase its bulk.
  • Sinduria or Annato, a water-chestnut-shaped fruit has seeds of brick red color. They can be ground and used as dry color or boiled in water to give brick red colored solution.
  • Water can be boiled with peels of red pomegranate or wood of Madder Tree to give a lovely red color.
  • Tomato and carrot juice diluted with enough water to remove the stickiness is a healthy option for natural red color for Holi.
