Traditional Recipes (Kencur, Ginger, and Turmeric), Third Part
2. Ginger. Ginger cream to deal with sprains
Many benefits of ginger are good for medicine and for cooking spices. You can google for the benefits of ginger. This cream is a mainstay in my family if there is a family member who sprains. Take some ginger, choose the old and fresh one, then grate and apply on the sprained body part. You can do a little gentle massage on the body part that is sprained, but many suggest not to massage carelessly because it can result in worse. And then, you can wrap it with gauze or plain cloth so that the ginger cream doesn’t come loose. For some people, it will feel hot, but the heat will provide a sense of comfort in the pain of the body sprained. If the cream is dry and still feels painful, you can re-apply the ginger cream. Remember, every time you make ginger cream for one use.
A. Helps relieve menstrual pain & smooth menstruation
Prepare a pan to cook the turmeric concoction. select turmeric 5 segments that are fresh and good and then spread, then add 600ml of water, add 3 fingers of tamarind and add palm sugar. don’t forget to add a little salt. boil until the water remains 200ml. strain the water and ready to drink. it tastes better than buying packaging. Oh, drink this concoction during menstruation or when menstrual pain.
B. Helps disguise black spots on the face
How to make it very easy, which is to take fresh turmeric, cut it and paste it on black spots. wait until it’s dry and rinse with warm water. can also be used as a cream. Take 3 teaspoons of turmeric powder, add 1 teaspoon of honey, mix the two ingredients into a paste. Then apply the cream on the face, smooth and massage gently. Wait until it’s dry and rinse with warm water then rinse again with cold water. Use this turmeric cream 3 days once or twice a week. See the result, the face will look cleaner & the black spots fade.
I think these are what I can share with you first. Maybe another time I will look for more herbs that we usually use.
