Cumin is an excellent source of iron, essential to the body in the production of hemoglobin, energy and metabolism. Cumin has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to aid the digestive process, helping to stoke the fires of digestion and flush toxins out of the body. Research has shown that cumin may stimulate pancreatic enzymes, which helps the body to absorb nutrients and break down food. One study has showed cumin as protecting animal from developing stomach and liver tumors, a promising sign that cumin may also have some cancer fighting action. We have included Cumin in our Well Being Biscuit due to its reputation as an overall detoxifier and its well rounded Wellness properties.
Tip of the week
REPEL BUGS NATURALLY... With the summer months now upon us, bugs and ticks are out in full force and can prove to be a menace to all. Did you know that Geranium Essential Oil can be used as a natural bug repellent? We place 3 drops of oil on the inside of our dog's collar and not only does he smell divine, but we find that it really does keep the bugs away. *Please note that essential oil in full concentration can be a skin irritant so it should never go directly on skin. If your dog does not have a thick coat of fur, you can place 3 drops of geranium essential oil in 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil and mix together. You can use the oil directly on the coat, particularly around the neck and where the tail meets the spine. Consider using it on yourself as well! We love local British brands Tisserand (www.tisserand.com) & Baldwins (www.baldwins.co.uk) for essential oils as their products are pure and cruelty-free!
