Coloured water: Add a spoon of turmeric (haldi) to a bucket full of water. Play Holi with this natural colour, but make sure it does not get into your eyes.
Paste- take some besan(gram flour), add a pinch of haldi to it and then make a paste by adding water or rose water.
For green colour, take some sun-dried henna(mehndi) leaves, grind it to make fine powder, or you can also use henna powder available in shops and mix it with gram flour. Please do not combine it with water as it will leave an orange colour on your skin.
Coloured water: Take some spinach and boil them to 3- 4 whistles in the cooker. Drain the water out in a bucket, make it dilute, and your green coloured water is here.
Take some orange peels. Keep them under the sun until they get dried completely. Grind them to make a fine powder (you can also mix it with water). Use it as a Holi colour or a vitamin C face mask.
You can also make orange water using Harshringaar flower (Parijat flower or night flowering jasmine). Take some flowers and crush them, then add those crushed flowers to a bucket of water. And your coloured water with a beautiful fragrance is ready
Use acceptable powdered coffee grounds as a Holi colour. It is also a good body scrub. Mix it with water or rose water, or just use it as a powder. It will prove to be an excellent substitute for artificial colours having chemicals.
