Turmeric is one of the most effective food supplement in the world, due to the medicinal properties of curcumin it contains.
Among its many benefits, curcumin can clean toxins from the liver, reduce the risk of cancer and of blood clots, and can also lower the bad cholesterol levels in the blood.

Here are some simple home remedies you can make at home, using the amazing turmeric:

1. If you suffer from ulcers or gastrointestinal disorders you can simply mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder with a glass of boiling water, let it cool and drink.
2. For the treatment of nails and feet fungus, you can mix turmeric powder with lemon juice and apply the ointment to the affected area daily for a week.
3. A simple and effective remedy for hemorrhoids is to mix 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder with a teaspoon of coconut oil and spread it on the affected spot.

Feel free to share more recipes, in this article here you can find more uses for turmeric.

Good health to all!

You can also use nettle leaves for the treatment of eczema.
Make an infusion from the leaves, let it cool, soak a cotton ball in the infusion, and spread on the affected areas.
Repeat this treatment 2-3 times a day for a week.

If by "normal buckwheat groats" you mean the roasted brown ones, then the answer is no.

The green buckwheat is the natural form, with no after taste.
It looks like this:

Hi all,

I've tried the other day making a vegan and gluten-free pizza.
It came out so tasty that I must share the easy recipe with you.

The Base

1/2 cup quinoa washed well and soaked for about 6 hours
1/2 cup green buckwheat washed well and soaked for about 6 hours
1/2 cup water
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp salt
10 large basil leaves

Heat the oven to 180c.
Place a baking paper on a pan and rub some olive oil on it.

Grind all the ingredients in a food processor.
Pour the mixture on the pan and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
Flip the base to its other side and cook for another 5 minutes.
Take it out of the oven but leave the oven on.

The Sauce

1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp salt
1/4 tbsp black pepper
1 crushed garlic clove

Simply mix all the ingredients and pour the sauce evenly on the cooked base.

The "Cheese"

3/4 cup cashews soaked for 6 hours
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tbsp salt

Grind all the ingredients in a food processor and pour evenly on top of the sauce on the cooked base.


I used sliced fresh mushrooms, sliced dried tomatoes, and chilly pepper,
but of course, you can use whatever toppings you like.

Place the pizza in the oven for something like 10-15 minutes until the "cheese" gets a little brownish color.

Bon Appetite!

The Citronella scent is known to repel mosquitoes,
You can just put a few drops in a diffuser or burner at night for a mosquito-free sleep

Please note that citronella is not recommended for pregnant women.


When outside, you can simply cut a fresh lemon to half and rub your skin with its juice, it will soothe the skin and prevent more bites.


In case you are already bitten, rub a few drops of Lavender essential oil to stop the itching and heal the skin.

I'm definitely not suggesting that these home remedies are a cure for the coronavirus.
There's yet no known cure for it, herbal or medical.

The home remedies in this post are only a natural relief to the symptoms,
instead of taking drugs containing chemicals that might have various side effects.

Thank you so much for the great tips!

It's been like 6 months since I've started it, turning it up every week and no good results.

I'll try adding green leaves and moisture it as suggested.

I'll also read about using earthworms. there are some worms hanging around the bin but I'm sure they are the right kind.

anyway, thank you again!

I've found this wasps hive inside my wooden compost bin...

Don't know if I should leave them there or not.
So far I got stung once on my finger, while adding waste the bin, but it wasn't so bad.

I want to produce my own organic compost for growing vegetables and herbs in my garden.

I've built this wooden compost bin a few months ago:

Since then I've been feeding it with my organic waste( I'm vegan so it's 100% vegetables, no meat, eggs, and of course no plastic).
I mix it every once and while with dried leaves but so far it doesn't seem to become anything like good compost.

This is how it looks like:

Lately, even a wasp family decided to build their nest inside the bin, I don't know if it's good or a bad thing.

Anyway, if anyone has any good tips for me it would be great!

Hi guys,

I've heard that the green buckwheat is super healthy, gluten-free, and is basically a whole protein.
Do you have any cool recipes for it?

So far I've made only vegan pancakes using the green buckwheat, and it was great, but I want to try other different recipes.

Here's the recipe for the vegan green buckwheat pancakes-

1 cup of green buckwheat, washed well and soaked overnight in water
1/2 cup of the water that you soaked the buckwheat in
3 spoons of dates syrup
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1tbsp coconut oil

Just put all the ingredients in a food processor and grind for about 30 seconds.
heat a good non-stick frying pan.
lower the flame to medium heat.
pour a bit of the mixture, and fry for about 2 minutes.
flip the pancake and fry the other side for about 30 seconds.
Bon appetite!
