In the Haldi ceremony (also known as Tel Baan in some cultures), the family members 'prepare' the bride and groom (in their respective homes) for the forthcoming wedding. They apply a paste, also known as 'Ubtan', made from herbs, vegetable oils, fresh milk curds, sandalwood powder and primarily turmeric on the face, arms and feet of the bride and the groom. The ingredients used in this ceremony are known to be good for complexion and have been used for many ages. Its almost like an ancient Indian Spa Treatment!
