Common Uses: Essential oils such as Fenugreek Oil (India) are reputed to aid in digestion. As an emollient it is used in poultices for boils, cysts and other complaints. Fenugreek has been considered carminative, demulcent, expectorant, laxative and stomachic. The plant has also been employed against sore throats, wounds, swollen glands, skin irritations, diabetes, ulcers and in some cases for the treatment of cancer. Acting as an expectorant, it contains mucilagins which are known for soothing and relaxing inflamed tissues, relieves congestion, reduces inflammation and fights infection, alleviates coughing, stimulates perspiration to reduce fevers, and is beneficial for treating allergies and bronchitis. Fenugreek is also an excellent source of selenium, an anti-radiant which helps the body utilize oxygen and is also a natural source of iron, silicon, sodium and thiamine. It is reputed to be used in conjunction with insulin to aid in diabetes and also to lower blood pressure. Fenugreek has also been used to promote lactation and as an aphrodisiac.

History: Its name is derived from the Latin foenum for Greek hay, illustrating its use in classical times as feed. Fenugreek is an ancient spice, although currently not much used in the West. It was used by the ancient Egyptians to combat fever, and later throughout the Mediterranean basin as cattle fodder. By the Middle Ages, it was being grown as a medicinal plant in India and throughout Europe, and in India it is still used in Ayurvedic medicine, and as a yellow dye.
