The oil prepared from the leaves of this plant is very effective in curing joint pains. Thus, you can use the oil.
The herb can also be used in the form of paste. Take the leaves, crush them and apply on your knees, leave it on for 20 minutes, then wash the knees with warm water. Let the oil from the leaves get absorbed in the knees. DO this every day for a month. Eat Boswellia capsules, one every day for a month.
Include Garlic and Ginger in your daily diet.
