You will spot these white clay sticks in any religiously house in India that performs pooja. Also a tilak is alworn by religious Hindu people on the forehead. Namakatti or Tilak is clay and has so many medicinal uses and is commonly purchased when a baby is born.

My mom got me few sticks after my baby was born. Though I don’t use it for religious purposes it has worked very well for few ailments. Here are a few:

Treats Pimples: when you have troubled skin after childbirth, here is a simple aid, just rub the stick with water on a stone and apply on pimple. If mixed with sandalwood its even more effective.

Heat rash on Baby: Just apply the same paste as above (tilak and sandalwood) on rashes.

Eye abscess: Rub tilak with water and apply on the eye.

Sore throat: Apply the paste on the sore throat.

All these remedies will work on babies as its totally herbal and safe.

Availability:

Its available at any pooja store or stores near temples.

Cost:
Rs 10 per packet thats all :)
