Hello all 🙂 Time for a new post and its Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder Review. The land which gave the world Yoga and Ayurveda today unfortunately prefers over-the-counter products that push us into a fools paradise where every seemingly harmless, aesthetic cosmetic promises us gorgeous skin, luscious locks and a drool-worthy body. Gone are those days when bathing meant a ritual to restore the skins health, improve its vitality and appearance by smearing a luxurious and nourishing blend of herbs, fruits, nuts and other such wholesome ingredients. Today, we will find creams, lotions, serums, body washes and wraps with just a picture of say- an Aloe Vera plant or a fruit on its pack & the tagline enriched with the extracts of so and so fruit/herb proudly embossed on it!
Okay, do you seriously think something which claims to be enriched with the extracts of a herbs/fruit would be even half as nourishing as that herb/fruit per se? Or has money become a free resource that we are willing to throw it on the rubbish contained in those cosmetics with sheer abandon? I admit cosmetics instantly glam up our appearance but has patience become such an elusive virtue in today’s world that we can’t even devote time to actual skin nourishing rituals? And it does not take decades to look gorgeous. A simple step would be to go for a herbal bath powder in lieu of your usual chemical-laden soaps. In keeping with this thought, I zeroed in on Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder one fine day. NalanguMavu is the Tamil expression for a bath powder. Read below my Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder Review to know?how nourishing this herbal blend is 🙂

My experience with Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder
Packed in a simple plastic pack, I find the packaging of Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder disappointing. Why? Once the pack is cut open, you have to transfer the content to a clean and dry container to prevent contamination and spillage. That makes it unsuitable for being carried while travelling. The provision of a zipper pouch would altogether remove all these problems. So, that is my input for improvement.
Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder is finely powdered and when mixed with raw milk (which I prefer due to the goodness of lactic acid in it), it forms a smooth paste effortlessly. You get a slight cooling sensation as you apply it on your body. It takes nearly 15 minutes to dry completely after which I suggest scrubbing it gently with a little water to exfoliate the skin and then, finally rinsing it off with adequate water.
At first, if you are switching over from a chemical-laden body wash/soap, you might feel that it is not doing anything substantial but hey, make it a part of daily bathing ritual. You will be bowled over by the positive turn of events 🙂 Its claims of softening your skin is cent per cent true. My skin felt smoother and softer after the very first wash. I have dry skin and this was the softest my skin was after having a shower. That to me, is its USP 🙂
I do not think that its claim to inhibit hair growth on face/body is true because that depends on genetics. It does, however, remove body odor (if not form the first wash then definitely after a few washes. It also depends on the amount of physical activity you undertake. For instance, if you sit in an air-conditioned room for most part of the day, you are bound to lesser body odor than a person whose job involves being outdoors for most part of the day. Naturally, the time taken to allay body odor would be less in the first case, right?)
Its mild enough to be used daily and gentle enough to be used by all skin types.
I am bowled over by Mooliga Nalangu Maavu Herbal Bathing Powder. It is the best bath powder I have used so far 🙂
