more stuff from my cupboards

Because you're soooo interested.

I found this stuff under the sink and I'm not sure where it's from. There's a chance I bought it in Malaysia or something, I just can't remember. Or it could have been there since kingdom came. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it.

Turmeric skin cream. Supposed to also guard against sun damage. This should be useful now that the sun has come out.
Dhoop. This is a kind of incense and it smells really good but I can't figure out how to keep it burning. It's thicker than the usual stick incense and it's not mounted on wood. It's stickier and pastier than cone incense, and it doesn't stay lit when I try to get it going. Does anyone know how to use this and am I being sacrilegious by doing so? What if I put it in the altar?
Zarqa henna! I want to put this in my hair. Maybe. I've never dyed my hair except in high school when I had a brief flirtation with Manic Panic midnight blue. PJ says I will look cheesy. Have you ever done this? Advice!


  1. not that i know anything about hair dye...
    my coworker uses henna all the time and her hair does not looked dyed at all.
    it(her) kinda looks like you hair has a tint of color, and you are not bleaching and stripping your hair apart.
    i think she also said that it is not permanent.
    so it might add a reddish/orange-y tint.


  2. Ha ha YOU? Know anything about hair dye? Not likely :)
    Thanks for the input. I guess I'll try it out one brave day. When I'm feeling adventurous.
