About Bone Kohl bottles
Bone kohl bottles, or surma bottles, are small containers traditionally made from animal bone or horn, used to store and apply kohl or Surma, a type of eye cosmetic commonly used in South Asian and Middle Eastern cultures.
These bottles are often intricately carved and decorated, with designs ranging from simple patterns to more elaborate motifs. They typically have a small opening at the top, which allows for easy application of the kohl or surma. The bottles are often used as decorative items as well as functional ones.
The use of kohl or Surma has a long history in many cultures. It is believed to have originated in ancient Egypt, where it was used as a cosmetic and to protect the eyes from the sun’s glare. Today, kohl or surma is still used in many parts of the world, including South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.
The benefits of using kohl or surma include reducing eye strain, improving eyesight, and protecting the eyes from infection. Some also believe it has spiritual gifts, such as warding off evil spirits or promoting good luck.
