MEDICINAL USES OF SAMBONG


MEDICINAL USES OF SAMBONG

 

For headache

 

To use sambong for headache, simply heat enough fresh leaves over a fire until slightly

wilted. Then pound the leaves a little and place on the forehead and temples. A cloth

bandage may also be used to keep the leaves in place. Change the dressing every four

hours when needed.

 

For gaseous distention

 

Gaseous distention is caused by excessive air in the stomach. It is produced by

swallowing air, indigestion or eating too much gas-forming foods like rootcrops and

some fruits.

 

For these simple cases of gaseous distention, boil 1 tablespoon of crushed dried (or 1

tablespoon chopped fresh) leaves of sambong in 1 glass of water for 15 minutes. Strain

and drink and boiled mixture while lukewarm. For children, follow the same steps but

use only ½ tablespoon leaves.

 

How to plant sambong

 

Sambong is best propagated using plantlets. Plantlets are the “baby plants” that grow

around the base of the mother plant. A plantlet with at least three leaves can be

separated carefully from the mother plant and planted right away in a pot or plastic bag.

A plantlet must be planted with its roots.

 

Harvesting and storing

 

It is best to harvest only the mature and healthy leaves. Make sure though that the

plant is left with enough leaves to survive. If you wish, you may harvest excess leaves

and air-dry them for storing. Air-drying takes about four days on warm weather or about

two weeks during the rainy season. Leaves are sufficiently dry if they crumble when

crusted with the fingers.

 

Dried leaves should be sealed in plastic bag or kept in covered tinted glass jar. Keep

leaves in cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight to extend their storage life.
