Book Description
From the Jacket:

The book elucidates the medicinal and curative properties of common plants. Household vegetables and fruit have medicinal qualities, which can help cure diseases like anaemia, common cold, ulcer and measles.

This book enlists the nutritive elements present in various plants and also gives simple recipes for making various decoctions and home-cures. For instance, apples and grapes not only taste good but also give you a good eyesight and increase your resistance to diseases.

Fruit and green vegetables, while being excellent for health, are also very beneficial for skin, hair and eyes. The book contains home remedies for common complaints like acne, pigmentation, falling hair and itching eyes.

An orange need not be looked at as just a juicy fruit but also as an excellent complexion-aid. Easy to make shampoos, hair rinses, face-masks and complexion creams. Fruit mocktails, salads and juices. All these are contained in this easy-to-read book.
