Using Nalpamaradi oil along with Kumkumadi oil for fairness in babies.
A mix of Kumkumadi and Nalpamaradi oil works best for fairness of babies. Both of these oils are good for improving skin complexion and fairness. But they should be used only after testing it on a small area. Very rarely, using herbal oils can produce allergic skin reactions.
100 ml of Nalpamaradi oil, mix it with 10 ml of Kumkumadi oil. First, as a trial, apply only 3 drops of the oil over forearm. Mark the area and watch for any allergic reaction. If there is allergic reaction (red patches, itchiness), then consult a doctor immediately. If there is no allergic reaction, you can use it for massage. Take around 2-3 teaspoons of it, apply to whole body, leave it for 15 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water. Do it once or twice a week. You can also do it daily. Read more about Kumkumadi oil
