Celebrate Rakshabandhan with the turmeric bond of protection and care
Raksha bandhan, which literally means “the bond that protects”, is a cherished festival amongst Indians, where the sibling bond is considered sacred. Rakshabandhan celebrates this unbreakable bond of love between brothers and sisters.
It is symbolized with tying of the Rakhi, or the thread of love and protection, by the sister on the wrist of her brother to protect them against evil influences, and in return, the brother pledges to protect his sister from harm and troubles. Interestingly, this festival had its origins in the warrior classes, where girls and women tied a rakhi to all the men who were going out to fight wars like their brothers, fathers, husbands, sons, with a wish that they come back victorious. The festival signifies the love, trust, and commitment between brothers and sisters, and helps foster a feeling of family and brotherhood within the community at large.
Today, the various traditions during Rakshbandhan include the tying of the rakhi on the wrist, the application of the tilak or tikka on the forehead using vermilion or turmeric, arti by the sister with an oil or ghee lamp, sweets fed and gifts exchanged. When siblings are far away from each other, rakhis are sent by post, e-rakhis are delivered by sister to her brother online, gifts are bought and couriered, or simply bought on online platforms, with gift-wrap options and delivered as a wellness gift from a sister to her brother or a loving gift from a brother to a sister. With nuclear and micro families, rakhis and gifts are sometimes exchanged between cousins or even close friends who are termed as “rakhi-brother” or “rakhi-sister”.

5 Best Rakhi gifts (for a sister or a brother)
1. Turmeric to protect - Haldi ka Suraksha Chakra
Traditionally in India, turmeric is known for its immunity-boosting, anti- inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, antifungal, anti-anxiety, soothing, stimulating, anti-oxidant properties. As an age-old practice it is recommended for babies onwards, for all ages. It is applied regularly to counter the effects of age, environment and life- style, prevent and address specific skin issues like acne, rashes, blemishes, scars and uneven skin tone.
Give your whole body a protective coat of turmeric combined with soothing and moisturizing oils and butters. Protect the skin from the harmful effects of dryness, pollution in the air and water, chemicals in skincare products, the UV rays of the sun, the ageing effect of time and any microbials. The antioxidant-rich Turmeric oil combined with cold-pressed oils is rich with its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antiseptic properties.
2. Turmeric for Ageless Beauty – Haldi Roop ko nikharne wala
Haldi Ubtan or turmeric paste application has been a part of the daily rituals since time immemorial. Turmeric paste application was recommended for all ages, especially teenage onwards for clear, glowing skin.
Parama Naturals' Turmeric Face and Body Oils derive their inspiration from the Indian tradition of haldi ubtan (turmeric paste application). To suit modern lifestyles, a daily 2-minutes application of these oils, help hydrate and moisturise the skin, slow down the normal rate of skin degeneration, replenish cells in the skin depleted due to harsh chemicals, age, hormonal imbalances or negligence, and heal the skin tissue at different layers.
By gifting these products, you encourage your sister to embrace her natural beauty while taking care of her skin with gentle, nourishing ingredients like coconut, sesame, almond, castor, kokum.

3. Turmeric to heal - Promoting Inner and Outer Wellness
Wellness is a holistic concept that encompasses both physical and emotional well-being. Turmeric’s properties help in supporting great skin health and also contribute to overall wellness. Combined with the superpowers of ginger, the effect is nothing short of miraculous. When you gift your sister some of the most potent turmeric-powered daily essentials, you encourage her to prioritize self-care and embrace a balanced lifestyle, promoting not only her outer beauty but also her inner harmony.
4. Strengthening Ancient Traditions for Modern Lives
Top to toe self-care was recommended as part of the daily routine or Dinacharya in Ayurveda. With busy lives, and often the lack of awareness in the traditions being passed down in family traditions, these practices vanished. The daily routine included a full body oil massage (abhyanga), head massage (shirobhyanga), foot massage (padabhyanga), ear massage (karnabhyanga).
5. Protection from chemicals and their harmful effects
In the age of synthetic and chemical-laden beauty products, embracing the goodness of nature becomes even more essential. Chemicals, especially in leave-on skincare products and cosmetics, often lead to premature aging and negative effects on the skin like rashes or allergies and even overall health issues like hormonal fluctuations, PCOS, cancer. So gift your sibling ageless beauty ingredients which are sustainable for use over a lifetime, to look good and feel great without a worry!
Raksha bandhan is a beautiful celebration of the cherished bond between siblings, where love and protection intertwine.
