hi, kasturi turmeric will not be used in kitchen..not an edible one..it will be hard powder and if applied,imediately,slight tingling effect will be there at skin..but yellow colour will not remain in your skin like ordinary turmeric powders..effective in kasturi turmeric (manjal) reduce hair growth also..
and You can get kasturi turmeric in any of the country medicine shops , there are a number of them of Kutchery Road in Mylapore, Chennai. It a variety that avoids spurt of hair of the hands, legs and all over the body. Very safe also.Not the one we use for cooking though. It can be teamed with something called ‘vasanai podi’ and used on your body after oiling. Theis is a special vareity because the ordinary turmeric passes the colour to the clothes .Hope this helps.

kasturi turmeric is a family of turmeric and it is very mild in terms of color. In India (Tamil Nadu) We used to buy them fresh and dry them in sunlight and powder them for daily use. We apply them all over the body to prevent the growth of hair. Well, it would not be available in US or any other countries, and this powder is available in Chennai (Mylapore) in some auyervedic stores which are good. It is a slow process and a natural remedy.its true that kasturi turmeric powder to prevent hair growth..
Some More Info on kasturi manjal : Curcuma Aromatica –Wild turmeric
This plant is sometimes called Cochin turmeric or Kasthuri manjal or yellow zedoary. It is a wild plant of the forests of the Western Ghats and Bengal in India and is sometimes cultivated there for its rhizome, which is used as a flavouring agent and condiment and the source of a yellow dye. This is not true turmeric or haldi which is Curcuma Longa.
So kasturi Holud might be Amba Haldi/Bana Hald/Jangli Haldi — these are actual names for kasturi manjal in Hindi — in Bengal too– I’m guessing.

I wanted to give an excellent tip for reducing hairgrowth on ur face. You need to do this regularly and you can see the effect.
Apply kasturi turmeric on your face Where you have hair growth. Wash it off after 10mins. It will work really great, if you apply regularly.
Most females get unwanted hair growth on neck during the harmonal changes which cant be avoided i guess. This tip should help.
let me know if anyone here has tried this and has seen good effect.
In bangalore all ladies follow this technique…
Now Banjara is marketing various beauty products and they also have kasturi turneric powder also. Please try if they are available near you. They have many face packs, for different skin types.

kasturi manjal might not be the correct solution for everybody. Whenever i use it i get a big rash of pimples and only goes away when i stop using it.But as this kasturi turmeric very strog and affective, when used on face. It forms a yellow layer on skin and makes skin to look harsh and aged.. cause this powder should be applied daily on face as de results are very slow..!!
I have used fot four days and observed this change on mah face, so stopped using now.. I dont how it works on others but this was my experience!!

Kasthuri manjal does not leave Yellow colour on the face. Kasthuri manjal is thin and finger length and the other one is short and stout … Only this short and stout would leave yellow colour on the skin .. Am I right?

Never heard of kasturi manjal…so I decided to read the posts….but as I couldn’t further understand What it is, my inquisitive mind made me surf the internet and Gosh….I’m surprised that this nothing but turmeric…
but, What I find difficult to understand is that kasturi manjal is just a kind of turmeric. manjal is turmeric in Tamil. kasturi is a local name given to a kind of turmeric.So What if you use any whole turmeric from the market…turmeric is turmeric is turmeric…because, I’ve read that it is believed to reduce hair growth, although the claim is not supported by any scientific theories.
However, turmeric is a great antiseptic, and can be used in face packs, or even to wash your face with. Would love to know more from people who have used it actually. Is kasturi manjal any different from regular turmeric or its just how people have taken to believe through generations?
