My grandmother told me that when she was younger, they used to soak garden cress seeds in water and have it thrice a week. Apparently it regulated periods. I've been reading about it and turns out it mimics estrogen like properties and is actually used to help people regulate periods and ease the symptoms of menopause. Does anyone have any idea about this?
I will be 40 weeks by Monday. And I want this baby to be out. Last time I was induced because my labour didn't start even after 48hrs of water being broken. This time however I dont want to be induced. I have heard of this natural remedy from Indian culture. They use these seeds to induce uterine contractions. They are used in early pregnancy for abortion but in the late pregnancy they can be used to help with softening the cervix and uterine contractions.
Has anyone tried them or heard of it.
Not really pets, but I do care for some Helix Pomatia in my garden. I'd like to grow some snail food for them in their designated space instead of feeding them daily, so I already transplanted my dandelions there.
However, I also have these Garden Cress seeds (babies first house plant, i think Americans use chia instead). If I google "cress snail", I get conflicting information, saying "snails don't like the sharp smell so you can keep them away with it" and "snails prefer it to salad, so you can keep them away from it". They might refer to different kind of snails, but neither specified anything.
Did someone already test this here, or do I need to wait 2 weeks just to potentially annoy my snails with the strong smell?
