BUT WAIT! We have something more to share with you.

We all get numerous messages about how Holi colours are harmful. Yes they are, we agree. So we thought, how about making colours ourselves? They can be made easily with things you can find at your nearby grocery store. So we came up with a couple of recipes for Holi coloured powders that you can send as well. Check them out!

Green Powder: Mix equal parts of Nupur Mehendi Henna Powder with flour. Many in India will use dry and finely powdered leaves of the Gulmohur (Delonix regia) tree.

Yellow Powder: Mix one part Turmeric (Curcumin) Powder to two parts Besan (gram flour). You can also substitute rice flour or talcum powder.

Red Powder: There are several ways this is created. One way is to use Red Sandalwood powder. Another way is to use Red Gulal. Flour may be added to add volume. Another way is to grind up dried red hibiscus flowers until it is in powdered form. To increase the bulk add flour.

Blue Powder: Crush dried Blue Jacaranda flowers into a powder. An alternate could be Blue Hibiscus flowers.
