Cucumber General Information
The Cucumber originates in Northern India where it has been cultivated for over 3000 years. The Cucumber plant is unmistakable with its vine of large leaves that form a canopy over the fruit. It is grown on the ground or on trellises. The cucumber plant is a fleshy, bristly, Cucumber Flower w/Leavescreeping or climbing vine that attaches itself to objects by means of tendrils. The leaves are mostly long-petiole, cordate (having a heart shaped outline) and incised to make five points. The flowers are golden yellow and bell shaped.

Cucumbers have little nutritional value due to their high water content. In fact, pickles are more nutritious than fresh Cucumbers because of the added ingredients, particularly dill. Cucumber is a natural source for proteolytic enzymes, and vitamins B1 and C. It also has demulcent, vulnerary, and mildly diuretic properties, making it one of the beauty industry’s favorite fruits for cooling and revitalizing the skin.

Cucumber Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Cucumber juice is great for treating oily skin, and it tightens the pores while it moisturizes. It also works well in treating skin eruptions, eczematic freckles, pimples, black heads, wrinkles, and dryness of face. This fruit juice works well in soothing sunburns, and Cucumber slices placed on the eyes will reduce puffiness. Cucumber juice also works well in treating ulcers in the bladder, kidney problems, and rheumatic conditions. The seeds of the Cucumber are diuretic, but are also used to treat tapeworm infestation.

Herbalists have stated that the Cucumber is a fine diuretic that promotes the flow of urine and stimulated the kidney to flush out both wastes and fatty deposits from the body. It is wonderful for eliminating excess fluid in body tissues, especially in chronic cases of gout and edema. The cucumber may be primarily composed of water but it also contains ascorbic acid/vitamin C and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling.

In treating sunburn, apply a generous amount of Cucumber gel to the affected areas and leave it on for 25 minutes. Wash off with cold water. For puffy and tired eyes you can use Cucumber gel on cotton pads, or use Cucumber slices and leave on until the eyes feel relaxed and rejuvenated. For other uses and formulations, read and follow products label directions.
