If you have been keeping up with our Youtube Channel you will have seen that Wellesley has been doing us all a big favour by seeking out medicinal herbs for popular ailments. As a matter of fact, he created an entire series on it.

Most recently he visited the School of Vision Rastafarian community located in the blue mountains. While the views were stunning and he was surrounded by all the bountiful flora and fauna that the luscious blue mountains have to offer he wasn’t there for the views.

Instead, he spoke with a member of the community called Joseph who as a Rastafarian lives a life where his medicine is sourced from fruits and herbs around him. Being as knowledgeable as he is, he was able to share with us seven medicinal herbs for poor circulation and inflammation.

7 Jamaican Herbs for Circulation

1. Cayenne Pepper

This is a popular one all over the world but, here in Jamaica, we call it bird pepper. Joseph advises us to simply pick the peppers off the tree and take it like we would a tablet. Two per day every morning, until you see improvements. You can also dry the peppers, crush them and add them to any meal.

2. Cinnamon Leaf

Now this is another popular herb that is widely used for its fragrance, flavour and of course, the health benefits. You can boil it as tea or even use it when making your favourite Jamaican porridge. You can use the leaves, bark or crush to make a powder. It does not matter how you consume it. It was at this point that Joseph mentioned the importance of drying freshly picked herbs as green herbs will damage the liver which we here in Jamaica like to call “flatter the liver”. For making tea simply crush the dried leaves, bring them to a boil, turn off the stove and allow them to “draw” or steep. When making the tea, the amount of leaves used depends on how strong you prefer it to be. Drink for a week or so depending on how bad your circulation problem is.

3. Rosemary

Similar to the others, you can dry the rosemary and use it to make tea, a powder or while cooking. Rosemary is also widely used for helping with menstrual cramps and the growing of hair.

4. Papaya Leaves

Papaya leaves can be used in the same manner as those above. However, Joseph does mention that this one can be a bit bitter. He also uses Papaya leaves for other benefits such as for the relief of pain and fever associated with common viruses like covid and Chick V.

5. Hibiscus

This is another great plant for poor circulation and inflammation. You can use either the leaves or the flowers. Have you ever had Jamaican Sorrel? Well, it is said that using the petals of the hibiscus in the same way you would with sorrel will produce a delicious-tasting drink. We even have the recipe right here for you to try. Hibiscus is also used in hair products for the loss of hair and is used to make soaps and shampoos.

6. Guava Leaves

Using the same methods used in the mentioned plants above to make the tea, you can use either stems or leaves of the Guava plant. Josephs also mentioned something quite interesting at this time. He said to dry leaves for these plants that will be used to make the various teas during a full moon or dark night to get the full benefits! Interesting right? He also let us know that Guava leave is also great for high blood pressure and prostate issues.

7. Star Fruit aka Jimbilin

The procedure for using this plant for circulation issues is the same as the ones we mentioned above for making the tea.

Josephs said he uses these in his day to day life quite often. When inquired as to the frequency for taking these remedies, he said for each we should take them for 7 days or until there are signs that the inflammation and circulation issue has been fixed.

We were later on introduced to his lovely spouse Empress Asil who has an entire line of natural products made from some of these plants including capsules, oils and soaps. To get your hands on these products, reach out to her via the contact information below.
