Description:
The informant demontrates and describes the preparation process and the application of a plant medicine made of wild lemon grass (Cymbopogon procerus).The base of the wild lemon grass is used for the treatment of scabies and skin sores. Procedure: Some lemon grass (Cymbopogon procerus) is pulled up. The earth is shaken off, the outer layers of each stem is peeled off and discarded. Then the upper part of the stems keeping only the bases are broken off. The bases are pounded and placed in a container of clean water.
