Through my lens ~ Natural Sponge

Loofah Sponge~ Berakaya peechu in telugu

Wondering what is this? and why for click event?

This month's CLICK Event theme is Wood. Portray in any form shape and size. So I thought why not this natural sponge which we use as a bathing sponge, brisk rubbing with Loofah sponge will exfoliate the skin and stimulate circulation.

We call it as berakaya peechu in telugu. It is made from drying out the biggest ridge gourds or chinese okra to get seeds for planting next year. The flesh gets dried out and the gourd is left with fibrous sponge like texture and ready to use. To know more details check this link

I used to buy these from the farmers in Kowloon, Hong Kong, near the Chinese border. They are great!

Hi padma,
Its a natural scrubber,isnt it.If used with wet bath powder,it removes all the dead cells on the body,making the skin soft.
