MUSTARD (Sinapis)





Category: Medical Uses of Some Common Household Articles

Mustard flour, two tablespoonfuls to a glass of water,
acts as an emetic. If given largely it produces violent gastritis, and
chronic gastritis is often set up by its constant use in excess. It should
not be used in acute dyspepsia and bowel irritation.

External: It is applied for colic due to flatulence and for acute
inflammation of different organs and is also good when applied to the nape
of the neck in headache, neuralgia, etc. Lint soaked in limewater and
olive oil relieves the excessive burning from the plaster. Mustard foot
baths made by using one handful of ground mustard to half pail of hot
water is useful in colds, sleeplessness, headache, convulsions,
dysmenorrhea.
