    I would like to start with the item called MOOLI.

    http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-daikon.htm

    I would also like to know other benefits of MOOLI in terms of medicinal, cosmetics, hair, scalp and face, alternative to household chemicals, etc.
    Currently I bought a 5000 sq ft plot of land with a huge house having alot of space to grow vegetables in containers. I already got my first harvest of corn, mustard green. Tomatoes and okra are also just planted in old tyres. They are doing well.

    Just bought MOOLI seeds to be planted soon.

    There is a famous story of an ancient Zen master who loved mooli, which is daikon, so much that one night he stuffed himself and then he died.

    The lore of Zen Buddhism includes many a story of daikon. You can look them up.

    On another note, they are great in parathas .... nearby restaurant stuffs them that way.

    Have tried Shallots/onion juice mixed with garlic juice to apply on my scalp in order to have my hair regrow in the balding areas. I can say that it got the itch off my scalp. But when I tried mooli juice massaged on my head, it reduced the itch and dandruff tremendously.

    Earlier i made my own shampoo of ACV and Honey to remove the itch. I gave some to my neighbor and a nother friend to try. The feedback I got from them is that it blackens greying hair. Although I had not known about using MOOLI earlier, I sure am going to try a new recipe of shampoo adding it to ACV, Honey, Onions and Garlic. To even out the smell and give it a better fragrance, I'm using the Balsam shampoo.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
