Welcome to Macka. B’s Medicial Monday

Today it’s all about this the cucumber

Or as they call it in Jamaica

Get the Cucumber cut it inna slice

Put it inna jug of water overnight,

You know what you get for a fraction of the price,

Energy drink full of electrolytes

Raw inna salad is one of the use

Or as a base for your Vegetable juice

Another surprise, put a slice on your eyes

Take away the dryness revitalise

Oh Yes one thing I have left

Cucumber can also help with bad breath

Wash away the Bacteria that cause the odour

Cucumber water instead of Soda
