raw buckgwheat
Buckwheat is good at drawing out retained water and excess fluid from swollen areas of the body. 


  1. Mix buckwheat flour with enough hot water to form a hard, stiff dough.
  2. Apply in a 1/2-inch layer to the affected area; tie in place with a bandage or piece of cotton linen.
  3. Leave in place for up to 4 hours.

After removing the plaster, you may notice that fluid is coming out through the skin or that the swelling is starting to go down. A buckwheat plaster will usually eliminate the swelling after only several applications, or at most after two or three days
