Introducing: Neni Naturals Sudanese/ Kanuri Dilke Traditional Body Scrub



Dilke, like KURKUM , is a traditional body scrub popularly used by the Sudanese and subsequently, Northern Nigerian brides to be; but this time with a slight difference.



While kurkum is a mild scrub, dilke is an intensely exfoliating and very concentrated scrub.



As a result, it is used just twice a week. Used together with kurkum, dilke leaves your skin soft, glowing and fragranced.

Dilke and Kurkum constitute a major part of the traditional treatment during the 'gyran jiki' or beautification phase of the wedding preparations.

Neni Naturals Dilke Scrub ingredients including sorghum, Sudanese attar oil and spice blends.

Directions:

  • Scoop 2 tablespoons of dilke from the container
  • Add a little water to make the scrub less thick.
  • Gently scrub all over your body concentrating on rougher/darker areas such as the elbows, knees and buttocks.
  • Leave for 30 mins.
  • Wash off with soap and water

Use twice a week.

    1. Hi!
      First of all, thank you very much for buy my products!

      Okay, to use the kurkum scrub, add a little water or to lighten your skin a little bit, you can use lemon or lime juice to mix it .
      Apply it to the area and leave it to dry.

      Don't wash it off until you want to have your bath or at least for 1 to 2 hours.

      Use the kurkum everyday for 3 weeks.
      You will see some improvement.

      For optimal results, use it with dilke scrub. Also dilute the dilke with water, lime or lemon juice.
      Use the dilke twice a week only.

      Hope it's clear enough.
      Let me know if you need any help.

    1. Hi!
      Okay let me break it down for you:
      To use dilke:

      Scoop 2 tablespoons of dilke from the container
      Add a little water to make the scrub less thick.
      Gently scrub all over your body concentrating on rougher/darker areas such as the elbows, knees and buttocks.
      Leave for 30 mins.
      Wash off with soap and water.
      USE IT TWICE A WEEK.

      To use Kurkum:

      Take enough kurkum for your face/body. Should be roughly 2 to 3 heaped tablespoonfuls.
      Add a little water to form a paste.
      Rub on your body in a scrubbing motion.
      Leave for 1 hour or until it gets dry.
      Scrub your body once more.
      Wash off with soap and water.

      For maximum effect, use everyday for 3 weeks.
      At the end of 3 weeks, use three times a week.

      So, you can use them together, using kurkum from Sunday to Saturday
      And dilke on maybe, Tuesday and Friday.

      After 3 weeks, use the kurkum Monday Wednesday and Friday,
      And use dilke as usual.

      I hope it's clearer now?

    1. Yes, but keep in mind that it will lighten your skin tone more than using it with water.
