I want to share with you a remedy that a former co-worker of mine and a good friend shared with me. She was born and raised in Somalia and her father made this formula for the family to keep them healthy and stay away from pests. She still takes it almost daily and says that it keeps her healthy throughout the year.

It is often used to fight infections and strengthen the immune system, as well as helping with headaches, digestive problems, toothaches, allergies and so much more.
