An Antiguan name for this plant is SINGLE BIBLE (‘Sinklebible’) because it has so many uses, the chief of which is for burns and the scalp. It has been used as a laxative in Carter’s Little Liver Pills. Other old time uses: ulcers, swellings, colds, sore throat, asthma, poultices, wounds, worms, stomach pains, diabetes and to increase the appetite.
