How to use a homemade face serum?

You can apply this on your cleansed and toned face before using moisturiser in CTM.

The serum can be used to massage the face and skin for naturally glowing skin.

How do I use the flaxseed seed gel?

I apply on my face and massage after 7 times toning before bedtime. As this serum dries, I apply my moisturizer and leave it whole night .

You can apply 4 layers of serum (allow each layer to dry before applying the other) on your clean bare skin and wash with cold water in the morning. This results in the natural glow of your skin. (Suggested by Nibhrutha)

Partition your hair and apply the gel on your scalp, leave it for 1/2 hour and wash with a mild cleanser. You will find your hair denser and thicker.

The flaxseed gel is a great hair pack for curly hair.

I ground all leftovers of the CTSM products and made a pack of (flaxseeds+neem+tulsi) and used on my hair.


Don’t boil them.

Cook in low flame without stopping the stir.

The gel will thicken as it cools down.

Don’t delay filtering as thickening will not let you filter the gel on cooling.

Kindly do a patch test always.

Fix your skin type and choose the products accordingly.

The above regime suited my skin and it might not work for others. So kindly do a patch test and proceed with a regular routine.

Following CTM once a day has made a great change to my skin.
