Who doesn’t know about Perungayam or Hing’s health benefits and medicinal uses, especially for women at home?
I still remember the winter season 1998 when I visited my native village with my family.
My daughter, about one-year-old, was experiencing stomach pain at night and crying continuously.
It is difficult to get medicine in remote areas of my native place at night.
Then my grandmother suggested my wife use a Hing solution on her stomach.
To my surprise, she stopped crying and slept well throughout the night.
How can I forget that moment? Since then, I have been very fond of this Ayurvedic medicinal herb and use it even after returning to Delhi.
Several people also use Hing for various health related issues and to solve skin problems like pimples, boils and black spots.
It is known by different names such as Devil’s dung and foods of God. Despite this, in other languages, it is known by other names. Some of it is given below.
Today, we will discuss ten wonder benefits and uses of Perungayam/ Hing for beauty and health.
