Frequently asked questions
Q: A ring has got stuck in my ring finger. The lower phalange is thicker than other fingers. Can Kola Kulathadi choorna be used to make it slim, sothat the ring can be taken off.
A: While Kolakulathadi Churna burns fat by rubbing on skin surface, it might not help to such an extent to burn fat to make the finger thin, very quickly.
I suggest you to follow this method –
OR get the ring cut.
