Fenugreek was used widely by Greeks – hence its name.

Make a decoction with 1 teaspoon of fenugreek added to 2 cups of water, boil till it reduces to 1/4th. Gargle with this for relief from throat pain, cough, and tonsillitis.

A paste of soaked fenugreek seeds is applied to the scalp and kept for 20 minutes. It stimulates hair growth and quality of hair.

2 ounces of fenugreek eaten daily for 3 months, can lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
