I have this beautiful ornamental tree referred to as flame of the forest planted in the back of my yard. It has now become a medicinal tree for me because I am now using parts of the bloom for medicinal purposes. It is all over the Island and it is especially loved by many persons because of its beautiful reddish-orange color and bell-shaped flowers.


The tree is also known as Donkey pee-pee tree, Chino tree, Chinny tree, Spathodea, Nile flame as well as Spathodea campanulata. Other common names are Squirt tree, Uganda flame, African tulip tree, Fountain tree, Nandi flame and Pichkari. Flame of forest tree is a beautiful flowering plant from the Bignoniaceae family and it is native to the arid and tropical forests in Africa. It is reported that it was found in 1787 on the Gold Coast of Africa.

Herbal remedy is actually derived from the flower bud which is hermetically sealed and which contains much water, even though the bud might seems small. Some persons describe the bud as ampule-shaped.

As children, we used the buds to squirt the water on each other in a playful mood. It was fun for many of us trying to get away from the squirts. As an adult, I learnt that the water that is contained in the bud is very good for all kind of eye ailments, including glaucoma. So a lot of Islanders are already using this water from the buds as herbal remedy by just dropping a few drops in each eye as treatment.

In each bud used, there is enough water to repeat the process. Some persons suggested that the bud with the remaining water could be stored in the refrigerator. However, I think it is best to throw it away and a fresh one be used each time. It is usually administered in the mornings and nights upon retiring to bed.

Birds also enjoy flame of the forest because the flowers which are are cup-shaped can hold dew and rain water. The many species of birds use this water to quench their thirst.

Flame of forest herbal remedy will continue to play a significant part in herbal medicine.

There are so many trees and plants around us that are of great benefits to us. However, many persons do not know the vast amount of medicinal remedies that can be derived from them.

I pray daily that more awareness can be harnessed by our people and so lessen the many ailments that are damaging our system.
