Spice/Herb of the Month; Cumin
For low appetite, mix 1 tsp. fennel seeds, 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds, and 1 pinch salt. Dry roast the seeds together in a cast iron skillet until golden brown about 3 to 5 minutes and then add the salt. Chew 1/2 tsp. of the mixture 15-30 minutes before each meal.
For indigestion, chew the same quantity of the above mix immediately after each meal.
To make a digest ease tea, bring 4 cups of water to boil, toss in 2" fresh ginger cut into pieces, 1 tsp. cumin seeds, 1 tsp. coriander sees, 1 tsp. turmeric and a pinch of fennel. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10-30 minutes depending on how strong you want your tea to taste and how much digestive help you need. Strain and sip after meals.
For toothache, brew a cumin tea by adding 1 ounce of cumin to 4 cups of boiling water and brew for 10 minutes. Sip slowly and keep the tea in your mouth before swallowing.
Use the tea above for bronchitis. Drink 2 times per day until symptoms go away.
