    Also for acne and anti tan pack

  7. Hi Sameeta,
    large pores can only be shrunk temporarily thus you can apply some cucumber juice or apply multani mitti pack which shows good results. This si also an anti tan pack. Or you can also apply papaya juice which is known to take away the skin tanning

    For acne try applying tea tree oil on the acne at night.

  10. Hi ,
    I made this oil about few days ago and last night when I was applying it it smelled bad though i left some in my hair.Does this mean it went stale and will it harm my hair which I used overnight?

  11. Yes, that means the oil has gone bad. You can make this again. My oil lasted for 7 days during winters. I think if the quantity is more then storing the oil in refrigerator will be good. And when you have to use that just take some and warm it up in a microwave for better absorption. But make sure to store in a wide mouthed container so that even when the coconut oil solidifies, you can easy use a spoon to atke out the oil.

  12. Don’t worry, just for one time use when you felt the oil had gone bad, it will not harm the hair.

  13. Thanks a ton for your reply, it was really helpful:)

  14. Hello Niesha,

    I am 27 & i am really worried of my hair turning into white so soon.
    Initially they were very few but now it spreads rapidly. I am worried let me any medicine or home made therapy. I would be grateful.

  15. Hi Dev,

    I can understand that and white hair problem is getting very common these days. I will advise you to take fruit juices daily and also apply this oil 3 times in a day. Here is the recipe.

    Boil 15-20 curry leaves in half cup of cobnut oil and warm it till the curry leaves get dark in color, then let this cool down and apply this at night. wash with shampoo in the morning. This oil can be used upto 7-8 days since the quantity it is prepared is not much.
    Hope this helps you.
