How to use the avocado seed

Although it tastes pretty bitter, you can use this product in different ways. First of all, you need to peel the brown part. Done that, you can use it for your teas: just let it boil in water for at least 10 minutes. You can also grate it and use it to season your pasta or salads, or in your breakfast yogurt. In this case, remember to toast and blend it first.

You can also use the avocado seed to soothe your external pains. In this case, crush it and let it macerate in alcohol for a week. When ready, apply it on the painful areas. This product can soothe joint and muscle pains and headache (in this case you need to massage the seed on your temples and neck). It is also very good to fight dandruff.
