Recently a friend of mine bought her toddler over.
He bumped his head and had a nasty blue bump, there was crying, there was the usual toddler drama. 10 minutes later he was playing again.
I had fresh root turmeric in my house, and, the powder. I grabbed some aloe vera gel, ghee and sandalwood powder--mixed it with 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and cold pressed turmeric root in a cheese cloth. (Sva-rasa-Cold pressed juice)
It was only a few drops of turmeric root juice. Thats all we need anyway.
My secret ingredient and adjunct was Manjistha powder.
A few hours later the toddlers contusion disappeared. Yes, it diseappeared--no black and blue or purple. Nothing. Just a little bump. NOTHING!
This is the magic of Sandalwood, Turmeric and Manjistha. Even if we did not have anything--all we needed was Turmeric root powder and turmeric powder.
Important thing is we mix this TURMERIC ROOT JUICE (Svarasa) with aloe and/or ghee.
