Boldo (Peumus Boldus)


Peumus boldus is a South American evergreen shrub endemic to Chile. The leaf is used in Chilean cooking in the same manner as bay leaves are used in Mediterranean cuisine. The leaves have also been used to make liqueurs and bitters due to their strong woody and camphor-like smell and pungent flavor. 

Apart from its culinary utility, Boldo leaves are used medicinally for their antibacterial properties. The remedy is valued for its capacity to treat some mild liver conditions, and gallbladder discomfort, and aid digestion, heartburn, and mild stomach cramps. It can also be used to treat bladder and urinary tract infections. 

Recommended Dosage
◉ 1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
◉ When herbs are used for an extended period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example:
- If you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause.
- If it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause.
That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.

◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
