Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum)


This herb tends to be underused, especially when considering its many medicinal properties.
A tea can be made with the powdered seeds to treat catarrhal infections of the lungs.
Fenugreek also makes a great external application as a plaster for sores, ulcers, swollen glands, infected wounds, hard knots, even tumors and gout pains.
It can be used as a first aid external remedy for appendicitis.
Simmer a few spoons of ground Fenugreek seeds in vinegar and apply as a plaster to the swelling.
Nursing mothers can greatly increase their milkflow by drinking regular cups of Fenugreek tea.
