Aavarampoo face oack

What is Aavarampoo?

Aavarampoo (Tanner’s Cassia) is a bright yellow flower from the legume tree, senna auriculata . The flower is the most used part of the tree for its saponin content and antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The powder of the flower can be used as a face scrub, face pack and also as a body wash powder.

This tutorial shows how to make a face pack using dried Aavarampoo flowers.


Aavarampoo (Tanner’s cassia) Face pack for glowing skin – DIY

  • 3 tbsp Dried Tanner’s Cassia flowers (Known as Aavarampoo in Tamil)
  1. Take dried Aavarampoo (Tanner’s Cassia) flowers and chickpea flour (Besan).
  2. Take the dried flowers in a blender.
  3. Blend on high for 4 – 5 minutes to make a fine powder.
  4. Sieve the powder if needed.
  5. Take 2 heaped teaspoons of the powder just made.
  6. Add 2 teaspoons of gram flour (also known as chickpea flour) to this. This flour has amazing benefits for the skin and leaves your skin with lesser blemishes and makes it soft too.
  7. Add rose water or water and mix well. I use plain water since I have oily skin. Those with dry skin can use yogurt instead.
  8. Mix and apply on the face and neck.

Keep the pack on for about 20 minutes and once it dries, wash off. While you wash your face, use the same as a scrub.
