From diary of a poetess

 Hello Freinds 

A different kind of post today.

A short Urdu poem written by me :) 

( Sometimes I write Shayari also :) )

Inn bhuli bisri rahoo pe 

kuch yaadein aab bhi baqi hai 

Jeene ki tammana iss dil main 

shayad aab bhi baqi hai 

mat darra zindagi mujhe 

umeed aab bhi baqi hai 

Jeene ke liye, yehi bahut hai ki 

Mera Rab mujhse raazi hai :) 

A kind of motivational one, 

I read this when feeling low 

Umeed aab bhi baqi hai :) 

Among all the ups and down's 

we must remember " Hope is still there"

Health Benefits of Fasting

 Hello friends 

In this post, I will share some health benefits of fasting and why is it so necessary.

* Fasting helps in weight management 

Overweight or obesity is a common problem now in people of all age groups.

Fasting helps to control those hunger pranks and do mindful eating. 

Less calorie intake helps in weight loss. 

* Fasting promotes better health by fighting inflammation

One study has shown that intermittent fasting helps to decrease levels of inflammatory markers.

* It may improve heart health by improving blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

* Boosts metabolism 

Fasting actually boosts metabolism which helps in weight control and weight loss.

* Could delay the aging process 

The most common types of fasting which we can practice are: 

* Water fasting 

One needs to drink plenty of water for a particular time period avoiding any solid food.

This also helps to cleanse the system and remove toxins from the body.

* Liquid Diet 

In this case, one can take only a liquid diet for a day or two, like fresh juices, coconut water, soups, etc. 

* Intermittent Fasting 

Here food intake is restricted for a few hours like 14-16 hours.

This helps to cleanse our body thoroughly and also helps in weight management.

* Partial Fasting 

In this case, few foods are restricted like fast foods, nonveg, sweets, etc.

This also helps in weight management.

* Calorie Restriction 

In this case, calorie intake is restricted so that one can easily do weight management.

Apart from this, we all know that all religion teaches the importance of fasting.

In Islam, we observe Roza during the holy month of Ramadan 

Entire month all are supposed to fast during day time, can eat in evening and night.

Very small kids can skip, it's for the 7+ age group.

Initially kids are made to fast for a day or two and as they grow older they are asked to keep more. 

We have been practicing this since childhood, so doesn't look difficult, in fact, is easy for us :) 

Kids are taught about the benefits of fasting, taught to respect food, thank almighty for the food we are getting daily, help poor and needy who can't afford good food like us. 

Hope you all liked this post and found it useful.

Benefits of Running An Instagram Giveaway

 Hello friends 

Back with one more interesting post for my readers :) 

In Today's post, I will discuss the benefits of running an Instagram Giveaway :) 

We all know giveaway helps to connect with our followers & readers.

It also helps us to get new followers, more engagement on our page.

But it has several other benefits too :) 

During my initial days of blogging some six years back, I started with Blog Giveaways 

That actually helped me to get genuine readers for my blog posts, some of which are still reading my posts regularly.

Then it was Facebook contest & giveaways in collaboration with a few brands, that also worked well and helped me to get new readers for my blog :)

Next, the trend was Instagram 

Which is still the most popular social media platform for many.

Initially, I did some giveaways of my own on Instagram, then in collaboration with some brands which helped me to get more followers.

Two years back I started a Giveaway page on Instagram with one of my closest blogger friends Zainab Raazi :)

Since both of us have done lots of giveaways together, we thought of starting a page.

Initially, it was too much work, too many confusions but gradually within 4-5 months things settled and it was easy to manage. 

We are doing monthly giveaways with some bloggers and brands. 

Our brand partners sponsor their brand's products as gifts :) 

Now after running it successfully for two years :)

I have a few things to share : 

1. It helped me to grow as a person 

This is the best thing that happened :) 

I got connected with new people, Influencers, bloggers, brands, and participants.

2. I learned Business

Yes, this is true for a person who has no background in the business.

I learned how to deal with Clients 

How to convince brands to collaborate :) 

For July Giveaway we collaborated with a celebrity Rakshandha Khan :) 

Again that was a different kind of experience dealing with a celebrity :)

3. Growth of my Instagram page 

From the giveaway page, every month I am gaining new followers and very good engagement from participants. Which is so good for my blogging profession.

4. WE could help many needy people via giveaways

This sounds a bit strange but it's true. Many of the giveaway winners personally messaged me and thanked me for the money and gifts they won from our page, said during the lockdown period financial situation was not good and the prize money helped them.

Again this made me think 

We should have more cash giveaways where our winners get cash amounts as prizes.

So, for me, this journey can be called a Happy Journey :)

Recipe of Paneer Tikka on Tawa

 Hello friends 

A different kind of post this time :) 

Recipe of Paneer Tikka on Tawa.

Paneer Tikka is one of the most popular Indian dishes, liked by people of all age groups.

Many prepare it on grill, oven, etc. 

But today  I will share a simple and easy method to prepare it on Iron Tawa.


Paneer: 200 gms 

Tomatoes: 2/3 medium sized 

Capsicum: 2 medium sized 

Curd: 3 tablespoon 

Salt ( as per taste ) 

Garlic paste : 1 tspn 

Haldi powder : 1/2 tea spoon 

Red chilli powder : 1/2 tea spoon 

Chaat masala powder : 1 tspn 

Garam Masala powder : 1 tspn 

Oil to fry 

 Method of preparation

* Cut Paneer into small cubes 

* Dice the vegetables into small cubes

* In a bowl add paneer, vegetables, and all other ingredients 

Mix well and marinate for around half an hour.

* After half an hour, heat an Iron Tawa put two tspn oil on it and put marinated paneer and vegetables on it, and fry it on low to medium flame. Cook for around 5-8 minutes till the paneer and vegetables get cooked properly.

* Do not put it all together, do it in batches, so that gets cooked properly.

* One can sprinkle some lemon juice on it to get that extra tangy taste ( this is optional) 

Delicious Paneer Tikka is ready to serve and enjoy:) 

I tried this many times and it comes out too good :)

Takes less time than the oven and is quite easy to do, so do try it out :) 

Paneer is a good source of protein and the curry dishes are a bit heavy, this tikka is light and easy to digest, also taste-wise too good :) 

One of my favorite :)

The World Needs More of Kindness

 A smiling face does not guarantee a happy heart. 

We never know and can understand what the other person is going through as usually, people do not want to cry in public or do not wish to share their struggle and pain with everyone.

Especially the introvert ones. 

So, Be Kind to everyone you meet :)

Before sarcastically complaining " You forgot me " or " You are too busy " 

Pause and Think 

Ask them about their health and happenings first.

They might not open in front of you but try to give some good vibes, some reasons to smile :) 

As compared to our parent's and grandparents' time, cases of mental illness are much more now and sadly it remains unnoticed and uncared.

People are worried about physical health, education, carrier, money but not Mental Health

Which can cause depression and mental problems. 

There are many cases where bright students become failures in practical life.

Reason mental issues, lack of confidence, less practical approach towards life, less of emotional bonding with family and friends.

These all made me think deeply about this issue.

Are we providing a good environment to our kids and immediate family members?

The answer might be Yes or No 

But thankfully we still have time to work on it.

Let's start with our families then close friends and then others.

Let's bond emotionally, 

Let us try to be a Pillar of emotional support to all who need it.

It doesn't cost you money or much time, 

Just a little patience and empathy :)

Empathy is something that can make you a Better Person.

As it will help you to understand and feel others' pain.

Before the pandemic started we all were living a very hectic life, busy with our jobs and daily chores, some even didn't care to stay connected with their relatives or old friends but then during the lockdown period, we had plenty of free time.

Many got connected with their long-lost friends and relatives again.

When I got connected with many of my cousins and friends and listened to their stories, then understood that everyone is going through some or another thing, everyone's challenge is different but it's there.

At times they don't even get someone to listen to their problems.

I know many a time it's not possible to help a few but at best we can listen to them and give them some moral strength so that they feel better. 

So finally I would say let's try our best to provide emotional support to our near and dear ones. 

Show them more kindness, give them a little more time.

Believe me " You will feel good, happy and satisfied " 

One gets inner satisfaction by helping others. 

In this mad race and mad world, let's show some kindness and empathy to others. 

The world needs more kindness and more kind people.

and Aloe Vera gel to keep the scalp healthy.

In this post, I will share 3 of my favorite hair care products which I found too good :) 

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner with Keratin & Argan Oil 

This is one of the best conditioners I have used till date.
It's ideal for people having dry and rough hair.
Only coin-sized amount is required to condition the hairs.
One needs to apply this on wet hairs after doing shampoo, leave it on hair for few minutes then wash it off with plenty of water.
It makes hair soft and frizz-free.
Also one can feel an increase in volume.
Hair looks much better than before.

One can check this product at Amazon

Mama Earth Argan hair mask 

With Argan and Avacado oil, this is one of the best hair masks I have used.
One needs to apply it on hair and leave it for an hour and then wash it off with plenty of water and do a mild shampoo.
It nourishes the hair, reduces hair fall, makes hair soft and frizz-free.

One can buy this at Amazon

Evoya Egg Oil 

This helps to reduce hair fall, makes hair soft and silky.
One needs to apply it on hair and leave it for few hours and then do shampoo.
Recommended to use twice or thrice a week.
After using it my hair felt too good, soft and silky :) 
The only thing I didn't like is its strong fragrance
( which eventually goes after shampoo)

One can check it at Amazon

Apart from this regular coconut oil and a good Aloe Vera Gel is always on my list :)

How Sattvic Lifestyle Helps To Maintain Good Health

 Health is wealth and we all want to have a healthy body and healthy mind.

But the most important question is "How "

In this post, I will try to explain how easy it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

It's not rocket science, it's a habit and we just need to make a healthy lifestyle our habit.

Past few months I was studying Satvic Lifestyle and its benefits.

I read a lot about it, also watched some videos on Youtube on this topic.

So sharing what it is.

The word Sattvic means Pure Essence and Sattvic foods are thought to be pure and balanced.

Offering feelings of calmness, happiness, and mental clarity.

Sattvic lifestyle includes eating fresh vegetarian food, doing exercise and Yoga, doing intermittent fasting, etc.

The five main principles of Satvic Lifestyle are: 

1. Eating Vegetarian 

What we eat has a great impact on our health. 

So eating healthy and eating the right food as per our age and medical condition is very important.

Sattvic lifestyle puts emphasis on eating a completely vegetarian diet and says NO to all non-vegetarian foods as much as possible.

One needs to include fresh fruits, vegetables in their diet.

A big No to all processed and packed food which we call junk food. 

Replacing white sugar with dates & jaggery.

Replacing white flour with brown flour and white rice with brown rice. 

2. Doing Intermittent fasting

Fasting has numerous health benefits.

It helps to cleanse our body.

Being a Muslim and keeping Roza every year, I was knowing this since childhood :) 

Nowadays many practices intermittent fasting which is 16-hour fasting starting from evening till the next morning.

They suggest to take light dinner by early evening like maximum by 7 pm and then taking the next meal the next day by 11 am so that it makes a 16 hours gap.

This time period is required to cleanse the body, if we keep on eating frequently the body doesn't get sufficient time to do deep cleansing which results in the accumulation of toxins in the body, which are the main reasons for high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol in the body.

Our body needs time to cleanse itself.

3. Doing regular exercise

The deficiency of Vitamin D is very common these days and the reason is we are not spending time in the sun. We stay indoors, hooked to our gadgets and hectic lifestyles.

We need to spend some time outdoors, doing exercise in the fresh air and sun.

So sattvic lifestyle also puts emphasis on spending time outdoors and doing regular exercise as simple as a morning walk.

4. Taking Fresh Detox Juice in the morning

Sattvic lifestyle recommends taking fresh detox juice in the morning, this helps to cleanse the system 

which I already mentioned ( how it helps to remove toxins from our body)

The two types of juice which they mention are:

* Ash Gourd Juice ( White Petha )

* Cucumber Juice 

With the help of either juicer or blender, one can prepare this detox juice and have it before breakfast.

This helps to cleanse our system.

5. Cooking in Earthenware

They recommend cooking our food in earthenware, not in steel, aluminum, or nonstick utensils.

The reason being food cooked in these is not healthy and they lose their nutritional value, whereas foods cooked in earthenware are healthy and retain all nutrients. 

My Opinion about Sattvic Lifestyle 

Being a fitness freak and person with an obsession with a healthy lifestyle, I found it too interesting :) 

I tried to follow all that they are recommending.

* Brought some earthenware and now cooking my veggies in it.

They taste much better than when cooked in aluminum utensils.

I use minimal oil in cooking and cook on low flame.

* Doing morning walk is my routine for ages, now I try to spend some more time in the sun :)

* By the grace of Almighty, I have a practice of doing fasting so doing intermittent fasting was not very tough for me.

* Have replaced my regular meals with fruits and salads many a time.

That makes me feel better.

* Keeping away from non-vegetarian food is a bit difficult as when you are cooking biryani & kebabs and not tasting it is  :( 

But still, I have managed to reduce my intake of non-veg food and now having more vegetarian food :) 

After doing all this the reward is : 

I have lost few kilos    Yay :) 

I feel better and happy :) 

So I would recommend all to try this as much as possible.

The results will surely surprise you :)

How Pursuing Hobby Helps to De-stress

 After the Pandemic started and because of lockdown we all were bound to stay indoors as much as possible, it's being observed that stay at home has badly affected the mental health of many.

We were not used to this lifestyle, not going to public places or friends or relative's houses, staying in, and not being to meet many. 

Most of the people spent time watching some series on Netflix or Youtube but again excess of that also gets boring.

Like many others, I also thought of pursuing my long lost hobbies to engage myself in some creative work and feel happy :) 

Pursuing a hobby actually helps a lot to de-stress

* Our minds get excited when there is a new and exciting thing to do and accepts that challenge and that helps to change our mood :) 

* A calming activity like painting or gardening lowers the stress level and relaxes the mind.

* Group activities like painting or baking with kids are fun.

* Writer and Poets feel satisfied and happy when they are able to write something good.

* Hobby time is away from regular work time, be it office work some daily household chores

so it's ME time.

* It helps to declutter our mind, we stop thinking about negative things and problems and mind is diverted towards hobby ideas.

* It takes our mind to a new world of imagination.

After marriage and with small kids, my schedule was too hectic, sometimes it was even difficult to get time to relax.

So this free time during the lockdown period gave me enough time to relax and do what I was not able to do earlier. I started spending more time on writing ( which is a part of my profession) as well as some time to do other hobbies like Painting :)

I used to do a lot during my school days than there was a long break. 

Thankfully last year I started again.

I started with bottle art. 

It was something different from the ones I was doing during my school days but I thoroughly enjoyed it:) 

First I saw some Youtube videos to get some ideas of doing bottle arts and paints and then ordered some good sets of paintbrushes and acrylic colors from Amazon.

And started doing it on various glass bottles which were already there in my kitchen :)

( Just cleaned them well ) 

Now have placed those glass bottles as Home Decor at many places in my house and feel happy whenever I see them.

My art & My Happiness :) 

My daughters also did some as they also got excited at the thought of doing bottle art.

Hair fall is a common problem these days. 

Reasons are many like Incorrect lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, excessive usage of 

hair drying products and regular usage of chemical-laden hair care products.

All of these causes hair problems like hair fall, itchy scalp, dandruff, etc.

In this post, I will share my experience of using Sesa Onion hair growth & damage repair kit.

It contains three products: 

1. Sesa Onion Hair oil 

2. Sesa Onion Shampoo 

3. Sesa Onion Conditioner

Sesa Onion hair oil 

This hair oil is infused with onion, ayurvedic herbs, and cold-pressed oils.
It promotes collagen production and promotes hair growth.
Treats dandruff and itchy scalp.
The best part is it's free of harmful chemicals like mineral oils, parabens, silicones 
& artificial fragrance. 

Sesa Onion Shampoo 

This is a sulfate-free shampoo with good ingredients like Onion, shikakai, Reetha, etc.
It's free of parabens, artificial color & fragrance. 
It gently cleanses the scalp and hair and prevents hair fall.

Sesa Onion Conditioner

It's a sulfate-free conditioner with Onion, Reetha & Shikakai.
Free of harmful chemicals like sulfate, paraben.
It deeply conditions the hair and makes the soft and frizz-free.

Sesa is a famous Indian brand and is in the market past 25 years. 
Its products are good and now with the launch of these Onion Haircare ranges, they are providing another good range for its users. 

* Onion extract prevents hair loss, promotes collagen production, and boosts hair growth.
* Bhigraj fights hair fall. 
* Pure cold-pressed oils repair the damage and provide nourishment.

My Experience with these products: 

I am using these products past few days and I liked them all. 
The hair oil has the fragrance of ayurvedic herbs. 
The packaging of the hair oil bottle is too good, it has a comb-like nozzle using which one can easily apply oil and it does good massage also.
One needs to apply oil at night and shampoo the next morning or apply in the morning and then shampoo after few hours ( need to leave on scalp for few hours, so that it can nourish hairs well ) 

The next step is to shampoo
One needs to take a little shampoo and apply it on wet hairs and scalp and leave it for a few minutes and then gently massage the scalp and wash it off with plenty of water.
This thoroughly cleanses hair and scalp.

The next step is conditioner 
One needs to apply the conditioner on wet hairs along the hair length 
( not on the scalp) and leave it for a few minutes then rinse it off with water.
This conditions the hairs. 

I liked the comb-like nozzle of the hair oil bottle.
It does a good massage.
I liked the conditioner too, it made my hair soft and frizz-free.
It wasn't too dry after shampoo as it usually happens.

My overall experience is good with this Sesa Onion range.

Regarding hair growth, I can update it after using it for some more time.

Kids love clay - How clay modeling continues to bring joy to kids spanning generations

 Yes, there are tons of fun kids activities that your little one will enjoy

tremendously but there is something about clay! Clay modeling is one of the

simplest yet most enriching kids activities online and offline which continue to

bring joy to children worldwide for generations! You can simply give a child a

lump of clay and watch him/her come alive with that magical passion of discovery,

new creation, and simple unadulterated enjoyment of having a great time whipping

up the clay into whatever they wish. 

Clay modelling has immense slow-burn learning advantages in comparison to

many other types of materials. Clay modeling for kids can be accessed by little

ones at their own levels of development, inclination, and confidence. Some gain

more confidence and pleasure by handling clay while others may stretch, roll,

squeeze, and completely immerse themselves into explorations of a more tactile

nature. The biggest concept to keep in mind here is that modeling clay may seem

to be working with a piece or lump of mud although there could be a wealth of

diverse philosophies, ideas, and thoughts that are being conceptualized and

processed while children keep exploring clay. It is ideal for indulging in messy

playtime with clay and also fusing exploration and construction. 

Along with pure and unadulterated joy, here are some of the benefits that clay

modeling brings to the table: 

* Clay has a soothing, calming, and considerably grounding impact on kids.

 Children can easily manipulate and change clay in varied ways while also creating or building upon unlimited ideas. They can readily alter, develop and revisit all ideas while also enhancing their levels of concentration likewise. No idea will come to an end that is finite.

* Clay will help in the classic touch and feel the benefit of natural relaxation, inviting kids to squeeze, poke, roll and press all they want and reshape it into several things. Children can boost motor skills tremendously from an early age.

* Children get help in understanding more about three-dimensional aspects courtesy of clay. Working with it will inculcate abilities amongst children to keep adapting to changes since they should work with clay’s limitations.

They can hone skills for solving problems and children can decide how to use clay, create shapes and also keep reshaping the same. Powers of visualization are greatly enhanced as a result.

* Clay is a tactile medium although it has a really calming impact on children

and adults alike. The reshaping of this material freely will be a healthy

avenue or channel for releasing emotions and has therapeutic value.

* Children will enjoy building things from scratch, instilling in them much-

needed empowerment and self-pride. Reshaping and molding clay will help

children attain more control and derive what we know as a sense of


*  Playing with clay is a great way for children to love doing what they do, i.e.

get messy while having fun simultaneously. There is a lot of imagination

that is at work behind the scenes in this regard. 

Introduce your child to a wonderful world of clay modeling courtesy of innovative

programs offered by Yellow Class Watch him/her literally feel the difference.

 Women tend to gain weight in the lower part of the body, especially after pregnancy and delivery, and then it becomes too difficult to lose that extra weight and maintain a good shape. 

 As women have a tendency to gain fatty tissues in the buttock, hips, and abdomen areas.

New moms find it difficult to do diet control and take out time for exercise

also with a hectic schedule at times it's too difficult to focus on these issues.

But weight gain is not good for health and maintaining proper body shape is also necessary.

Or else it can cause health problems and one feels less confident. 

Last year during the lockdown period all of us were at home and so less active like before

as we were not able to go out and we're staying at home.

That also has caused weight gain issues in many. 

So in this post, I will share some easy tips to keep our lower body in shape.

* Proper diet 

Maintaining a proper weight and shape majorly depends on what we eat.

A healthy diet is not only required to get energy but also to maintain weight and shape.

To reduce lower body fat reduce carb intake in your diet, less oily foods, and more fruits and vegetables. 

Minimize salt intake as the salt absorbs water and one feels ballooned up.

Add more protein and fiber to your diet.

Avoiding junk foods as much as possible.

More homemade food than outside food as outside foods are loaded with oil, preservatives, etc which is too bad. 

* Active Lifestyle 

Weight gain in the lower part of the body is mainly because of an inactive lifestyle and poor eating habits.

One should be physically active. If not able to go to the gym because of any reasons, one should do some light exercise at home should go for a morning/evening walk. 

Should not sit for a long period of time as happens with working professionals.

One should take a short break from work and walk a little, use stairs instead of lifts or escalators.

These small things help to keep one physically active.

Apart from this one can also try some good massage oil to tone lower body parts.

As massage improves blood circulation and helps to tone the body.

Recently Namyaa has come up with a cream to tone lower body part 

It's Namyaa Brazilian Bum Cream for Butt lifting, plumping, and firming.

* This is suitable for all skin types.

* It's a kind of body lotion that helps in skin tightening, butt lifting, and firming

* Also helps to remove stretch marks( which is a common problem with overweight people and also post-pregnancy ) 

* It's  Free of harmful chemicals, artificial fragrance, color.

* Has excellent ingredients like Nutmeg, Chamomile, Macadamia seed oil, Glycerine, etc.

* It also moisturizes the skin. 

How to use this lotion 

Take the required quantity on your palm and gently massage it on your butt area for few minutes until 

it gets absorbed in the skin completely.

Allow it to dry for some time.

Repeat this process twice daily for maximum benefits and good results.

Once in the morning and one before going to bed at night.

Do it for a span of six weeks to see the results.

Because of our hectic lifestyle usually, we neglect exercise and sometimes not even able to do proper

diet control, so that's increases body fat ( especially in lower body parts) and one feels bad about it.

So ladies can try this NAMAYA BRAZILIAN BUM CREAM  to tone their lower body part and feel 

good and confident.

One can buy this from online stores like Amazon or Flipkart 

One can also buy this from their official website.

One can check their website to see their range of products. 

All good and affordable.

They have some good products for skincare and ladies hygiene range.

Irregular periods are something which most of the girls & women have faced some or the other time. 

Especially during this lockdown period last year, many faced this issue.

A survey showed 65% of women faced this issue during the lockdown period. 

Reason being less active than before because of staying at home (sedentary lifestyle), stress, anxiety change in sleeping patterns, diet changes ( irregular eating habits) which cause hormonal changes in the body that ultimately affects the menstrual cycle. 

( Stress is one of the biggest cause of irregular periods) 

As the excess release of cortisol (stress hormone) can suppress normal levels of reproductive hormones.

An irregular period is either a missed or delayed period when one doesn't get their period within 28-30 days of the previous menstrual cycle.

An irregular period is not good and there are some simple ways to control it like :

* Taking soaked fenugreek seeds water early in the morning ( empty stomach ) 

* Including raw papaya dishes in the diet. 

* Doing yoga and some exercises.

* Maintain a healthy weight ( as overweight people have more of this irregular periods problem) 

* Eat less junk food and more fresh fruits and vegetables. 

* Taking Apple Cider Vinegar 

Sometimes when this also doesn't help one needs to take help from a doctor. 

But the medicine given by doctors for this is often birth control pills ( oral contraceptives) containing hormones Estrogen & progesterone.

And it is not good to take such medicines for a long period of time ( as then it will side effects too) 

Namyaa has come up with a Period Care kit to tackle these problems.

Namyaa is a Natural Skincare brand that offers some good skincare products as well as these Period care kits.

They have some good products in their Health & Wellness section, Hygiene, Personal care section.

Do check their website. 

Now coming back to its period care kit, the product is NAMAYA ANTARTAVA  for delayed & irregular periods.

It's an ayurvedic syrup that is free of harmful chemicals, artificial fragrance. 

Has excellent ingredients list like Aloe Vera, Pippali, Karanja, Kultha, Ashwagandha, etc.

It helps to restore the natural menstrual cycle to 28-31 days and also helps to promote timely ovulation.

It treats hormonal imbalance and purifies the blood.

One needs to take this for a few months to regularize their menstrual cycle.

One needs to take 20ml of this syrup after breakfast & dinner for a minimum of 90 days ( 3 months ).

It's a vegan product.

Has ayurvedic certified ingredients.

Good for PCOD patients also.

PCOD ( Polycystic ovarian disease) and PCOS are some of the most complained issues these days.

It's a kind of hormonal imbalance in the body and it also aggravates the problem of irregular periods.

If not treated properly could cause infertility issues. Apart from infertility, it can also cause severe gynecological complications. 

Namyaa has also come up with the AARTAVA KASHYA 

This one just like Antartava has a composition of natural ingredients like Kanchar, Triphala, Yavashkar, and many more that definitely help in benefiting people suffering from PCOS & PCOD.

Another introduction in the range of Namyaa Period Care is the NAMAYA SHWET KANIKA

This one is dedicated to the issue of treating excessive white discharge and related problems.

Like the other two products, this one also has all-natural ingredients.

This helps in promoting timely ovulation, treats odorous white discharge, etc.

Namyaa has some excellent products in their Health and Wellness section, Hygiene, Personal care section. So do check their website for checking out their complete range. It's also available at online stores like Amazon, Flipkart.
