    • Madam, Eladi Choornam is used in the treatment of digestive complaints of Kapha imbalance. Whereas Eladi Thailam is used to improve skin complexion and texture.

      For skin detox and to improve skin texture and complexion, it is used as a massage oil over face, and whole body. Apply the oil and wash off with warm water after 30 mins.
