Ra-moon is scientifically known as Trophis Rocemosa and the evergreen plant’s leaves and bark are well sought after for their health benefits.

Ra-moon may however be found in many of the forested areas in Jamaica, more so in parishes such as Saint Mary, Saint Thomas and Westmoreland.
How to use Ra-moon?
Both the leaves and bark of the Ra-moon tree are used in an attempt to reap health benefits. The aphrodisiac qualities that the Ra-moon plant possesses in its leaves and bark can be harvested by using them to make herbal tea.

The Ra-moon herbal tea may then be sweetened using honey or sugar if desired.The leaves and bark are also harvested and used to make roots drinks and tonics that are marketed as sexual stamina boosters for both men and women. Ra-moon, like all other herbs, should be taken in moderation as there is no proven scientific research done on the herb to properly deduce the negative effects that might arise.
