This is why, we're here to give you a little list on all the good things that betel leaves can bring to your health and beauty:
Helps in getting rid of acne: These leaves have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help in treating all the symptoms of acne. You can soak some leaves in water and wash your face with this water. Or, you could simply make a paste of these leaves by adding turmeric to it and apply it on your face and wash it all off after 5 minutes.
Helps in preventing hair fall: Betel leaves work wonders for hair fall. All you have to do is grind these leaves with sesame or coconut oil and apply the paste on the scalp. Leave it on for an hour or so before you wash it all off.
Helps in getting rid of body odour: These leaves can help you do away the body odour where you can add some betel leaf oil to your bathwater and it'll in turn leave you feeling fresh and kill the odour-creating germs on your body. You can even sip on a drink that's made with a few betel leaves in boiled water that can detoxify your body odour.
Soothes down itching: These leaves can work well for allergies and skin related issues. You can boil some 10 leaves and mix it with your bathing water. The anti-inflammatory properties will help in reducing the itchiness and swelling.
