Boldo Leaf;**  Peumus Boldus

S American Cooking Spice, Gastric Spasms, Bile Release, Gout

Boldo Leaf  is an herb native to Chile and Peru, where it is modernly used often as a cooking spice. Excavations in those regions have actually indicated that it may well have been one of the herbs commonly used as far back as 10,000 years ago! Common mythology also says that the herb was largely ignored until a Chilean shepard found that his sheep were in better health after nibbling on Boldo leaves near his pasturage.

Since then it has also become a popular variety of folk medicine in the regions of Chile and Peru. There it is used to treat liver problems, including complications involving hepatitis, bladder infections, and gallstones. Some herbalists also explore Boldo Leaf as a useful alternative as a mild laxative that can help relieve gastrointestinal spasms. Others also explore it as a treatment for dysmenorrhea and gout

Other uses of Boldo leaves are incense for calming, spiritual cleansing and harmony. When burned, it smells of slightly mint. The incense creates an atmosphere of peace and harmony and is great for the body and mind. It has a relaxing effect that promotes sleep and strengthens the nerves.

Some smoke Boldo leaves to stabilize themselves and bring themselves back to their center.
