Babchi

Babchi (also known as Bavachi, Bakuchi. Botanical name: Psoralea corylifolia), is a herb used in Ayurveda. It contains psoralens which stimulate the pigmentation process when combined with sun exposure. Care should be taken with dosage or burning and blistering can result in some people. It can be taken orally or applied topically. Some people report stomach upset after taking Babchi orally, others have said that over time their stomach became used to the herb.
The powder from the seed is used to treat leucoderma internally. It is also applied in the form of paste or ointment externally.
Babchi is often used in combination with neem oil.
