Eco-friendly Holi Colours
Eco-friendly Holi Colours [Illustrations by Shinod AP]

There was a time when the colours that were used by people to play Holi were taken from nature – from flowers. Why not revive those memories this time. Use natural colours to paint the town red!

The things you need:

1. Tesu flowers: Half a kilogram
2. Strainer

Step 1: Dried tesu flowers are readily available in the market. You can look for them in grocery stores or shops that sell Holi colours – or in the old city areas.

Step 2: Boil half a bucket of water and soak the tesu flowers in it overnight.

Step 3: Strain the mixture to get a yellowish orange liquid and get ready to splash!

This natural colour does not have any side effects on the skin.

Have a happy and safe Holi!
