Medicinal Plants

Cardiospermum microcarpum
Cardiospermum microcarpum is most often used for a tea after childbirth to contract the uterus and expel blood. One herbalist recommends it as a nine-day tisane with sour orange (Citrus aurantium), miniroot (Ruellia tuberosa) and hog plum bark (Spondias mombin). For skinny people or when ``your bone dry, shabby,’’ drink as a tea.
