New Delhi, March 7: If you want to play Holi but don’t want to use chemicals on your face then here you can know how to make herbal colours.

Get some beetroot, henna and flowers in your kitchen to make chemical free Holi colours.

Ishika Taneja, Executive Director of Bharti Taneja’s ALPS Group, shares some tips to make herbal colours that you can enjoy in Holi:

* Orange: Soak henna leaves in water overnight and use the water to play Holi in the morning.

* Magenta: Boil a few pieces of beetroot in a cup of water to create dark magenta coloured water.

* Yellow: You can soak red flowers in water to get Holi water having a yellow-ish tint.

* Green: If you wish to play with green colours, mix spinach with water.

* Blue: To get this colour, you need to use the blueberry juice.

If you are thinking to make dry colours then take rice flour, add proportionate food colour and mix it with two teaspoons of water to make a thick paste. Leave it to dry and then blend it in a mixie to use it as a powder colour.
