Gentle Ayurvedic Cleanser

Written by Pratibha Masand Sachdev, L.E., M.A., CIDESCO, certified holistic health coach

This wonderful family recipe is inspired by the beauty of my grandmother and wonderful aunts.


  • 4 tablespoons finely-powered chickpeas (besan flour)
  • 1 tablespoon of organic sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of purified water
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered bentonite clay
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely-powdered herbs*

*Herbs can be chosen by the professional, such as tulsi, mint, or rose petal powder.


Blend the chickpea powder, clay, herbs, and liquids.

To Use:

Apply over the entire face, avoiding the eye and lip areas. Allow to dry for 10 minutes, then gently remove in an upward sweep. Remove excess with a wash cloth and tepid water to reveal gentle, yet thoroughly-cleansed skin. Your client’s skin is ready for radiance!
