Common names for T. foenum-graecum

Billy-goat Common Fenugreek Grass of the Camel's Clover




It is made from the dried mature seeds of a little herb from southern Europe that belongs to the Fabaceae family (the botanical name is Trigonella foenum-graecum L.). Fenugreek is known as Trigonella in Greek and as Trigonella in English. The seeds of this herb are ideal ingredients for topical ointments and poultices because of their high mucilage content (up to 40%). Because of its mucilaginous properties, fenugreek is often used to treat stomach disorders. In tiny animal trials, the seed of fenugreek has been found to offer a variety of possible medicinal benefits. Faegreek seeds are used to treat a variety of ailments, including cancer, baldness and high cholesterol, as well as diabetes, fungal infections and stomach ulcers.

Fenugreek seeds have long been used by Indians to treat diabetes naturally. According to multiple research, fenugreek seed extracts have been proven to have hypoglycaemic (abnormally low blood sugar) effects on rats, rabbits, and dogs. Many of the seeds' constituents have been related to this effect, including nicotinic acid, defatted seed faction, trigonelline, and coumarin. A number of the herb's traditional therapeutic benefits may be enhanced by diosgenin and yamogenin, two of the herb's steroidal sapogenins. Fenugreek has been proven in multiple small and mostly uncontrolled human trials to be able to lessen the intensity of plasma glucose and insulin responses in diabetes persons who are not reliant on insulin. It is yet to be discovered what these components are in fenugreek seed. fenugreek seeds were found to considerably lower serum cholesterol levels in non-insulin-dependent diabetics in a 24-week study including 60 participants (a 14% reduction).

Fenugreek seeds have a nutty flavour that's evocative of maple syrup. Because of their flavour, fenugreek seeds are popular as a spice and flavouring component, especially in recipes that call for maple syrup. Healthy, pleasant, and soothing, Fenugreek is an excellent food. If you take fenugreek as prescribed, it is generally safe and does not have any bad side effects.

Seeds and other airborne components were incorporated into the formula.


For centuries, people in the Middle East, North Africa, and India have relied on the herb fenugreek to treat a variety of health problems. People who suffer from anorexia can benefit from fenugreek seeds, which are high in nutrients and can help them recover from illness and gain weight (lack of appetite or inability to eat). On the other side, studies have indicated that fenugreek can help lower fevers, and some herbal medicine specialists have compared it to the antipyretic drug quinine. Eating the seeds, which have a calming effect, can help alleviate the symptoms of both gastroenteritis and ulcers. The seeds of the fenugreek plant are also used to help women give birth and to improve the amount of milk they produce for their nursing babies. There's little doubt that the seeds have anti-diabetic and cholesterol reducing benefits as well.

In addition to treating boils, abscesses, ulcers, and burns, a fenugreek seed paste can also be used to treat abscesses and ulcers. A douche made from ground fenugreek seeds can also be used to alleviate excessive vaginal discharge. The seeds can also be used to restore a stale taste and freshen bad breath. In China, fenugreek pessaries (a vaginal suppository) are used as a method of treatment for cervical cancer.

Because to the widespread usage of fenugreek in Indian cuisine, this country has a low rate of arthritis. Every day, one cup of fenugreek tea made from dried leaves should help ease arthritis-related pain and suffering. For more information, see Wikipedia

Other medicinal uses are available.

Cooking with TGs (High Triglyceride Hantaviruses)

In addition to being used in cooking, fenugreek seeds and leaves can also be utilized for medicinal purposes. It's possible to add thinly-sliced, young leaves of fenugreek to any recipe that includes vegetables like beans, vegetables such as potatoes or cauliflower, or anything else that includes a vegetable. Use the herb's leaves carefully because they are a touch bitter.

Adding powdered fenugreek seeds to your favourite curries can also enhance their flavour. The powdered fenugreek seeds are used to make a variety of eastern sauces, curry powders, spice blends, and even 'halvah,' a delicious sweetmeat prepared by Jews. Adding fenugreek seeds, either powdered or whole, to mango pickles and chutneys is a good idea.

Sprouted fennel seeds can be used to salads and sandwiches. To sprout fenugreek seeds, place them in a shallow container and cover the bottom with a thin layer of water. For best results, soak the seeds overnight in a bowl of cold water. The following morning, plant the seeds in a plastic container with warm water. If you don't want seeds to germinate, store them in a dark place. Sprouts should be washed twice a day at the very least to keep them fresh. Each time you rinse, store the container in a warm area. Fenugreek seeds will sprout within four days. The following is a cautionary story. Fungus-infested seeds and sprouts should be thrown away.

Fenugreek seeds or extracts can be used to make vanilla, maple, butterscotch, and caramel flavourings in the food sector. Other dishes and beverages can also be flavoured with these herbs.

Roasted fenugreek seeds are a popular coffee alternative in India.

What is lanolin?

The use of lanolin in beauty care dates back many years, and is especially favored for its skin benefits. Derived from the sebaceous glands of sheep, lanolin is a natural wax that protects the animals from the elements. The extraction of lanolin from raw wool is done through a soap solution or hot water kneading process, followed by isolation through centrifuging, bleaching, deodorizing, and drying.

Lanolin is highly valued for its moisturizing properties and ability to hydrate not only the skin, but also nails and hair. It helps to retain moisture and serves as a lubricant, making the skin smoother and softer.

At Elma Skin Care, we use lanolin as the foundation of all of our products. We ensure that the lanolin used is ethically sourced from sheep wool that has been shorn without causing harm to the animal.
