- Tones, cleanses and exfoliates the skin
Fenugreek seeds are soaked in water and this water is used as a toner in a spray bottle. The soaked seeds can be blended into a paste and used as a mask. If the paste is in a form coarse, it can be used as an exfoliator. Fenugreek is one of the most widely used natural herbs for the skin.
- Fights dandruff and conditions hair
For a long time, before the hype of the anti-dandruff shampoos, soaked fenugreek seeds ground with some yogurt was applied to the hair as a mask. The antifungal and antibacterial properties of fenugreek help fight hair loss. Leave the mask on the hair for an hour before washing with a mild shampoo!
- Digestion aids
Fenugreek seeds help in the bowel movement and help flush out toxins from our body. A glass of fenugreek soaked water in the morning before your walk is going to help fight digestive issues and acid fluxes.
- Menstrual cramps
Chewing some fenugreek seeds during unbearable menstrual cramps has always helped me personally. The seeds contain phytoestrogens, ie, plant estrogens and this greatly helps the pain and discomfort experienced during menstruation.
Though the seeds of fenugreek have many benefits, their taste buds can be put-off. The best way to incorporate this into your lifestyle is to make it part of your daily diet.
