Characteristics

What we use - fruits

What it does - It is thermogenic, antispasmodic; stimulant, digestive, carminative and anthelmintic.

Treatments Using Ajowan

  • In flatulence - Take a tsp of ajowan seeds and roast it in a pan until the seeds turn red. Pour 2 cups of water into the pan and boil until the water is reduced to half. Take this decoction once a day for a safe and sure remedy for gaseous distension of the abdomen.

  • In common cold - To clear a nasal block, crush a tsp of ajowan and tie in a cloth bundle for inhaling. The strong odour soon clears the stuffy nose.

  • In asthma - Inhale the vapours of a tsp of the seeds put in boiling water.

  • In earache - Half a tsp of ajowan is heated in half a glass of milk and the milk IS filtered and used as ear drops.

  • In sprains - Mix a paste of ajowan an, salt and turmeric in gingelly oil and apply on the sprained area along with some wheat flour.
