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

Can i apply this oil and leave it over night. And my baby is a year old , Can i use this oil for her to maintain her complexion?

    • Hi, you can add a tablespoon of turmeric powder to 200 ml of Nalpamaradi oil, mix it well and use it for face massage to remove facial hair. Effect will be gradual. Since it may make your face yellow, better to apply it 10 minutes before bath.
      You can use this oil for baby massage (without adding extra turmeric to it). – Avoid contact to eyes.

  39. Krishnakumar P.P. says:

    Dear DR. JV Hebbar

    Recently i had been to a saloon for an hair cut and shave. Unfortunately in my case it turnout to be a nightmare , that after the shave , the barber used some skin cream to make me feel cool . My skin started showing reddish round dots after this massage and after reaching home i have noticed that it has become thick . I am taking blood thinner capsules as well , and any regular small pressure on the skin will leave a reddish mark on the surface.

    Now i can feel my skin is rough on the effected area and i can feel this once i move my fingers. shall i use nalpamaradhi thailam to remove this , please advise

    • Apply Nalpamaradi tailam over the affected area, avoid ear and eye contact. Leave it for 10-15 minutes, and then wash off with luke warm water. Avoid using strong soap till the issue is completely resolved.
      If the symptoms do not improve even after a week, consult a doctor in person.

  46. Sir i hav got pimples on my cheeks after using nalpamaradithailam.. should i stop using or continue??

    • Usually, in oily skin people, this problem occurs if the oil is left on the face for more than half an hour.
      Use just a few drops for facial massage, wash off with Besan powder (or gram flour) or mild soap, within 10 minutes of application.
      If the symptoms persist, it is best to avoid it.

    • hi.., rashes means does it itch or something..? nalpamaradi will definitely help in such condition,but the analysis of the condition is also an important thing, for which you have to consult an Ayurveda doctor. and since it is from your childhood 100% cure can not be guaranteed.

      • hemamalini says:

  93. Sir plz tell me nalpamarathi thayilam and keram are same. Imy baby 2 weeks old girl. Which oil is best. Nalpamarathi or kungumathi

    • Hi, Nalpamaradi thailam and Keram are both one and the same. Thailam is prepared with sesame oil and Keram is prepared with coconut oil. Nalpamaradi is better than Kungumadi in young infants. Apply a few drops of the oil on arm and leave it for 5 minutes. If the baby produces any skin rashes, then do not use the oil. If there are no rashes and the baby is all right, only then you can use the oil for massage.
      This rule applies to any oil for baby massage.
      Always consult an Ayurveda doctor directly for any of the health issues, especially for infants.

  111. Lakshmi says:

    Dear Sir,

    I would like to know if the oil contains butter or ghee

  112. Hello Doctor, for my 10 month old baby nalpamaradi based on coconut or sesame oil is good? Is there any restriction to mix kumkumadi with any of these oils (coconut or sesame) ?

    Which one is more effective for babies to improve skin color?

    And can I use green gram powder on my 10 month old daughter? How do I make green gram powder at home?

    Thanks for the wonderful review!

    • Nalpamaradi coconut oil is good.
      There is no restriction on usage of Kumkumadi oil but test the oil over forearm for any allergic reaction before using it regularly.
      You can use green gram powder. You can make it using mixer. But the powder has to be very fine.

  113. I’ve started using nalpamaradi tailam. I have been asked to apply and leave it for half an hour and then wash. But I seem to have itching all over my face and neck after washing. I have already undergone treatment for uticaria. Is it suggestive to continue the oil or stop using it ?

    • Please wash off the oil with luekwarm water only. If the symptoms continue, please consider using Nalpamaradi taila with other brands. If still the symptom continue, stop using this oil.

    My 1 year old son has eczema since he is 4 months old. I am taking Ayurvedic treatment for his condition. His condition improved quite a lot. Most of the eczema has cleared up. Only some 5% remaining. Till he is 4 months old, we were able to wash his body with gram flour / moong dal flour without any problem but after his eczema started whenever we apply these flours, his body gets red bumps all over. We don’t know why his body became sensitive suddenly. Can you please suggest what flour / ubtan to use to remove body fuzz on the baby or also to improve his complexion. Can I use Nalpamaradi Oil mixed with Kumkumadi Oil for baby with eczema ? Kindly suggest.

During this period i started noticing hairfall and a small patch of hair receding from sides of my hairline. even a few strands of white hair at front. I used to feel a bit hot after using these. Will this heat effect my hair? Or will it cause premature greying of moustache and beard?
