Cassia Reticulata

Bicutema (C); Corance (C); Inanabiske (Cu); Laureno (D); Piria (Cu); Saragundi (CR,CR/ROC); Sorocontil (CR/ROC); Wild Senna (CR/ROC,J); Martingalvis (C). Choco Indians say they have no use for this tree, but it occurs at many of their home sites. Perhaps they have a mustical use for the plant. The Bayano Cuna use the plant as a stomach ache remedy (!). Aleaf ilnfusionis used to treat ringworm elsewhere and they use the plant for liver afflictions in Colombia. Darien Negros use seven leaves boiled in water for a purgative. They also used the same tea to wash dogs with mange. Rio Congo Negro women who have not borne children drink a tea of 15 leaves of laureno with a nickel's worth of anis. If still sterile after 6 months of the treatment, divorce is in order (!).
