In eruptive fevers—Give plenty of fenugreek water during the early stage of small pox, chicken pox or measles. (A tsp of the seeds is soaked in a pint of water overnight to prepare fenugreek water). The alkaloid trigonelline in fenugreek is antiseptic and carminative.

In dandruff—2 tsp of fenugreek seeds are soaked overnight in water and the softened seeds are ground and left on the scalp for half hour to get rid of dandruff.

In eczema—After washing the lesions with a solution of tea and rock salt, the part is dried and covered with a dilute paste of fenugreek and red sandal.

To clean skin—A mixture of green gram, bengal gram and fenugreek seeds makes a good substitute for soap.

As a shampoo—Similarly, shikakai green gram and fenugreek seeds in proportions of 2:1:1/2 are powdered together and used with water whenever necessary.

In joint stiffness—Drinking a tsp of fenugreek powder in some warm water is useful in preventing tightness of the joints.

In white vaginal discharge—Methi powder mixed with curds is effective in controlling infection. The same recipe is a tested remedy for diarrhoea.

After delivery—Fry fenugreek seeds in ghee and finely powder them. Mix this in wheat flour and sugar and make a halwa- like preparation. This is proved to normalise a woman's system after delivery. Dosa-1 table spoon every day.
