Steps for hibiscus oil

Take two hibiscus flowers and at least 7-8 young hibiscus leaves. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil and grind into a paste. Make sure you use the entire flower except for the pollen.

Now, place a pan on medium heat and add three teaspoons of coconut oil. To this, add the hibiscus paste. You can also add a few methi seeds, amla powder and curry leaves. You could also opt for moringa flowers or neem leaves. Like Mira Kapoor mentioned in her Instagram story, “it really depends on what’s available and in season.”
