Organic Colour & Flowers


The next step is to arrange for Holi colours. Holi is played by all age groups and therefore the colours used during the event must be chemical-free. Organic colours are way better and preferred over chemical ones, after all, it is any day better than ruining your beautiful skin, hair and eyes. You can pre-oil your body to easily remove the colours or avoid using toxic Holi colours at all. There are organic colours in the market that can be bought or a flower petal holi is equally fun if you are with kids.
