Understanding Haldi and Chandan Role in Promoting Vaginal Health

If men were made in the reflection of god, women were made in the reflection of endless nature. Women are always essential for the continuation of the world. They have the power of recreation which is the equivalent of creation itself. Hence, women are most affected by environmental and physical changes. A healthy woman is one who always has a natural solution for her physiological issues. For example, a woman drinking lots of water instead of taking a pill for her headache will be healthier and vice versa.

For almost every ailment of the human body, there is a herbal remedy provided by the planet. So, if you’re also a fan of healing with nature, remember that nature is a lady and she’ll always have your back. There are a lot of troubles associated with an unclean vagina. Not only does it smell odd, it can also result in damaging infections,some of which can also strip you of motherhood. Hence, for the organ that holds your eternal power of recreation, it is necessary to use only the most effective plant based remedies.

What is the natural way of preserving vaginal health?

While a lot of people say that eating tropical fruits can be beneficial for vaginal health, it only prevents internal infections and dehydration. Whereas the vagina gets affected more from the outside and has a higher chance of catching an infection from a toilet seat or even your own fingers. To protect it from painful infections, why not use the most powerful plant based antibiotic- turmeric. Mixed with the cooling and soothing qualities of sandalwood, you can improve your vaginal health and fortify it against any future infections. Here’s all you need to know about the goodness of haldi and chandan:


In age-old traditions of India, turmeric is the one herb that is used in every culture from north to south. While the usage of it is said to have beautifying benefits for the bride and groom in marriages, it actually is used for preventive benefits as well.

During the marriages, the bride has to be on a partial fast for a couple of days. When the bride is on a limited diet, the body is more susceptible to catching an infection from the crowd of people attending the wedding ceremony. So, in order to protect her from falling sick on the day of the wedding the haldi ceremony is kept right before the day. Providing beauty with safety from infections and ill-will!

Turmeric is from the ginger family used as a powder when dry. The yellow color of turmeric comes from a set of substances called polyphenols. These polyphenols contain a number of benefits for the body. The main polyphenol, great for immunity against fungal and bacterial infections, is Curcumin. Curcumin is the polyphenol that acts as a strong biological disinfectant. It doesn’t just detoxify, turmeric also cleans out any bodily tissue it is used on, externally or if taken with food. For women, this powerful anti-germ is essential to keep themselves clean in a herbal way. There are still many traditions throughout the country around the calendar that involve taking a bath after a pack of turmeric and sandalwood. The benefits of turmeric on intimate health are multiple:

  • Cleanses the intimate skin gently
  • Removes impurities and infectious presence
  • Gently exfoliates skin tissue making it brighter
  • Improves intimate biology for good bacteria presence

    Turmeric and the curcumin present inside it has the ability to disinfect all skin types and restore a balance of pH. For the women who are on the move and working towards a future, there is Namyaa Haldi Chandan Intimate Hygiene Wash that locks in the powerful antibacterial and cleansing properties of haldi and will rejuvenate your intimate hygiene this summer. It can be used within minutes and is great for the difficult period days as well.


    One of the most expensive and regulated trees in the world for a reason, sandalwood is used in almost all Asian countries for rituals and luck. It has a yellowish brown heartwood that is easily moldable and can be turned into powder for various religious uses and physical healing.

    One of the most popular ingredients used in skincare products, sandalwood has nourishment for the skin that can heal any kind of wound or infection. Sandalwood powder is used in bathing water to cool down the body, calm the mind and even fill yourself with positivity.

    Sandalwood is used in rituals of every caste and religion born on Indian soil and is mostly found in South Asian forests. It is used for purification during worship, cleansing oneself after a loved one’s demise and Ayurvedic spas to cool down your mind and body. Also, the most important benefit for women is that sandalwood powder is highly effective in cleansing delicate skin. It comes with:

    • Healing values for the skin
    • Best in removing fungal and bacterial presence
    • Prevents infected skin from inflammation and infection
    • Rejuvenates the vulva with a cooling sensation
