Dwi Indah Permatasari

For my own batik space route, I took one of the most widely used spices, namely sahang / pepper. It’s very widely used by people when cooking, besides being an enhancer of the taste of pepper it also has many uses for health, namely for traditional and modern medicine which has spiritual properties:

– stimulation of sweating (diaphoretic)

– wind output (carminativ)

– urine shedding (diuretic)

– increased appetite

– increased activity of the digestive “glands”

– accelerates the digestion of fatty substances besides that, pepper seeds can also be used as a medicinal herb for rheumatism.

Apart from being a spice, pepper can also be used as a vegetable pesticide because it contains poisonous substances to kill insects.
