Precautions

- Powdery and irritating product, do not use near a source of ventilation.
- It is advisable to use a mask and glasses when handling the powder.
- Avoid contact with eyes; in case of contact, rinse thoroughly with clean water.
- Keep out of reach of children.
- This powder is very active, we advise you to always do a test in the bend of the elbow 24 hours before application.
- Manjishta powder naturally contains plant pigments, and can, therefore, have a slightly coloring effect if used in too high a dose in a mask, or left on the skin or hair for too long. It is necessary to dilute it (20% max) in other natural powders and not to leave it on for too long (10-15 minutes). It is possible that Manjishta leaves a slight coloration on your skin after a mask, but normally it disappears quickly after rinsing and drying, or in the worst case after passing a cotton soaked in milk, cream or vegetable oil.
- Due to its very powerful effect and its coloring power, Manjishta powder must always be diluted in other powders for application to the skin, the ideal being to use neutral powdery support (clay, rice powder. ..) for your plant masks and poultices.
- If you experience a tingling or heating sensation, stop the application immediately and rinse off with clean water.
