For cooling, Peperomia pellucida, first comes to mind in St. Lucia.  Although many make a tea of it, Mrs. Jn. Louis says you must pour on cold water and drink as a tisane.  She suggests you eat it raw like watercress as her grandmother used to do.  It is also used for high inflammation and for a sore mouth.  For jaundice a carrot is grated and the water from the boiled herb is poured over the carrot and magnesium added.  This water is drunk until the yellow ``comes out.’’
