Haematoxylon campechianum
Leaves of kanpèch and tet neg are pounded, a little salt added, and the mixture applied as a poultioce for bles. Or use djewi tout (Anredera leptostachys) and kanmpech (the extracted juice) with the juice of a small kalbas (Crescentia cujete) that has been heated in the fire; give as a drink. The wood is soaked in boiling water and used to dye materials used in basketmaking. Often used to make charcoal, kanmpech attracts bees so is important in producing honey.
