Churna / Churan Powder

Churna is a mixture of powdered herbs and minerals used in Ayurvedic medicine. This homemade Churna mixture is rich with antioxidant, vitamins and minerals that boosts your immune system with regular intake.

Churna powder is best for preventing and treating cold, cough, asthma and bronchitis. Intake orally for kids and adults to treat cold and cough with honey. Doctors recommend Raw Buckwheat honey as it works better than cough syrups. If Buckwheat honey is not available, please opt for any Organic Raw Honey. Please note children under the age of 1 should not intake honey.
