Tips For Mustard Seed Uses
Depending on the variety, it grows best in temperate climates. The white mustard seed stems originally from the eastern Mediterranean, the brown from the Himalaya, and the black originated in the Middle East.
Momentarily, it is mainly grown in Hungary, Great Britain, India, Canada and the United States and is one of the most traded spices around the world.
Mustard is a good pain reliever for aching joints. Combine equal parts of black and white mustard seed oil with rubbing alcohol and apply it on the painful area. You can also mix a teaspoon of mustard and a teaspoon of cayenne into your bath water which will have the same effect.
The healing effects of mustard seeds can be put to good use both in- as well as externally. For instance, consuming half a teaspoon of mustard is said to be very effective against heartburn.
Using mustard seeds as a home remedy not entirely without risks. Don't use it on a daily basis for too long. When taken internally, it can aggravate a sensitive stomach, dyspepsia, gastrointestinal ulcers, and an irritated urinary tract.
Side effects such as drowsiness, diarrhea, vomiting, difficulty with breathing, and even coma and heart failure have occurred. Another caution I came across was to never give these home remedies to children under the age of six!
Be careful when you use it externally and have sensitive skin. Always dilute mustard oil otherwise it can result in blisters and skin irritation.
Mustard is a great herb for spicing up all kinds of dishes. The seeds have to be crushed and mixed with water or vinegar though in order to bring out the best flavor.
God's word doesn't have to be diluted, mixed, crushed, or taken with caution. His word can be taken straight up and will always yield the best results!
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
