Item details

Homemade Gram Flour is flour made from the Garzanbo legume ( a member of the bean family) that can also be called Besan or chickpea flour.

It has been used for many years in India and surrounding countries as an exfoliant to lighten and brighten the skin. Brides were traditionally treated to a sesame oil massage, followed by a body scrub made from gram flour, rice flour, almonds, milk and turmeric as part of their wedding day rituals.
