5 TOP HOME REMEDIES FOR REDUCING BODY HEAT NATURALLY:
1. VETIVER WATER:
Vetiver root also called as khus root in Hindi is an amazing body coolant. It is also very very fragrant. During hot summers, we add a small bunch of the roots to our drinking water, vetiver water is very fragrant and very very cooling. Also try to use a mud pot to store the vetiver water, it is super cooling and refreshing. You can read more about vetiver here.
2. NANNARI SYRUP:
Nannari syrup also called as Indian sarasaparilla is wonderful in bringing the body heat down. During hot scorching summers, if you visit any Indian home, you will be mostly offered buttermilk or refreshing nannari sharbat. The syrup is made by boiling nananri roots in water along with a sweetener and is very healthy. I regularly make it at home, you can the recipe for it here.
Palaya sadham which is nothing but left over rice soaked
in water is a wonderful body coolant. We have it mixed with buttermilk and salt. It is our traditional breakfast and it is a great remedy for
reducing body heat. We also have it with small onions also called as shallots in English which also reduces body heat. You can find the benefits and recipe for making palaya sadham here.
Jigirthanda which is nothing
but rose flavored milk made with basil seeds, rose petal jam, rose
