The list of uses covers a wide range of ailments from coughs, colds, fever, loss of appetite, colic, headache, earache and intestinal worms to malaria.

The roots, stems and leaves are used as enemas, poultices, infusions, body washes, lotions, smoked, snuffed or drunk as a tea. Photographed in Cape Town, South Africa.
