Sandalwood or Chandan is considered as sacred and holy in Hindu mythology. However, it has various other medicinal benefit. It gives cooling effect to body, , boosts memory and improves the concentration. It also improves blood circulation and is somewhat useful in controlling diabetes also.

My diary features this Sandalwood Sharbat, which is made from sandalwood powder. It is readily available in the market.

To make this Sharbat you need
50 gm sandalwood powder
2 kg sugar

How to make chandan ka sharbat :
