Discover the Wonders of Avocado Leaves: A Must-Have Herb for Your Island Wellness Routine

Avocado (Persea americana), a member of the Lauraceae family, is celebrated not only for its delicious fruit but also for the remarkable benefits of its leaves. Growing majestically as a medium to large-sized tree, the avocado showcases elliptical leaves that stretch up to 18 cm in length, gracefully arranged in whorls at the branch tips. During its blooming season, the tree is adorned with small, greenish-white flowers, leading to the production of the well-loved green or purple, pear-shaped fruit, which can grow up to 18 cm long and houses a single, large round seed at its core.

Key Component for Natural Remedies: The Avocado Leaf
Utilized Part: Leaves

Preparation and Application: One of the traditional methods to harness the calming powers of avocado leaves is through preparing a therapeutic tea. This involves a blend of about half an ounce of avocado leaves, sarsaparilla roots, half a pound of puron bark, all-man strength (wiss), three soursop leaves, and three breadfruit leaves. This rich concoction is boiled in a pot of water for an hour.

It’s crucial not to cover the pot during the boiling process to ensure the essence of the ingredients is fully captured. Once done, the mixture is strained, and it’s recommended to consume a wine glass of this potent tea three times daily – in the morning, midday, and evening. This regimen should be followed until the desired relief and calming effect are achieved.
