CHITRAL HORTICULTURE SOCIETY

Local Practice:

The seeds of Sheni are collected in June/July from the higher pastures. They are cleaned, dried and fried in a pan until they become reddish/brown. They are then ground and made into a thick paste by mixing in a few drops of water. Tablets are made from the paste and used for gum infection. The paste is also used as a puru and applied to the face for pimples and for Haghul (facial rashes that women get after delivery).
