Coriander leaf has potent healing qualities when taken internally as a juice for acute allergies and used externally as a paste for allergic skin reactions. Coriander leaf acts as an anti-toxin and anti-histamine naturally within the body. Therefore, coriander is one of the optimum easy-to-access herbs for treating an acute allergic reaction - this remedy works well with children when they have had contact outside with a stinging plant or grass.
INDICATIONS FOR CORIANDER JUICE AND LEAF PASTE IF REQUIRED:
Allergy related hives,
Allergic reactions to plants (i.e. poison ivy),

WHAT YOU WILL NEED
1 serve (half the recipe for children, and please make a fresh batch daily while symptoms persist)
20 grams fresh, organic coriander (leaves and stems)
Cheese or muslin cloth
Medium sized bowl
A blender, Bar Mix or Food Processor
Put the coriander into your chosen blending device and blend or pulse until a smooth paste.
Put the muslin cloth in the bowl to line it.
Put the coriander paste into the bowl, then taking the corners of the cloth, draw it into the centre to make a pouch.
Gently squeeze the cloth to extract the juice into the bowl.
With the pulp left in the muslin cloth, take this and apply to the site externally of the skin reaction and leave for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
Consume the juice in the bowl in 1 or 2 doses throughout the day. Please take 10 minutes before food and a little warm water can be added if you find the taste too concentrated.
Continue this method every day until symptoms subside.
