HOW TO TAKE COSTUS ROOT
=> For painful joints: Make into a paste by mixing Costus powder with olive oil until smooth. Then this paste can be massaged into areas of pain in the evening before bed.
=> For unwanted skin spots, skin discoloration, scars, and burns: Mix Costus powder in equal parts with raw honey and add a very small amount of clean water to make a paste. Apply to the area once per day, for 20-30 minutes, and then wash off.
=> For tonsillitis, runny nose, colds, and flu: Costus should be ground to a powder and gently snuffed in the nose. You should be lying down with your head and shoulders slightly raised and your head tilted back. You can also inhale it by mixing it with olive oil and putting droplets of it in the nostrils.
=> For chest infections, asthma, and pleurisy: Mix a teaspoon of Costus with raw honey and smear on the inside of the right cheek, three times a day.
=> For digestive problems, IBS, Crohn’s, or intestinal parasites: Crush it into a powder (I use a cheap coffee grinder) and mix a teaspoon of Costus with raw honey, water, or other liquids. Drink this twice a day.
NOTE: There are cases of tonsillitis and chest infection, especially in children, which need to be treated with antibiotics. Natural remedies may not be enough in these cases.
