- It is a great remedy for stomach ailments
- Nutmeg seed
- Home-made butter
Use ‘Sane Kallu’/’Stone grinder’ (used to extract the sandalwood paste) to extract the mucilage from nutmeg seed.
Use 2-3 spoons of mothers milk and rub nutmeg seed against the stone to extract a fine paste
Mix it with home-made butter and take a pinch of this paste in your index finger and rub on baby’s tongue
