Cassia alata, also called King of the forest, is not referring to an animal of the jungle but it is an ornamental plant which blooms lovely yellow flowers.  The name alone rings royalty and prominence in the plant world.  It is of the Caesalpiniaceae family and it is native to the Americas in the tropical areas.  It can be found all over the world and it is commonly found in Jamaica as well.  The main parts used as herbal medicine are the leaves, barks, and the roots. The Latin names are Cinnamomum and aromaticum.

The common names are Cassia, Cassia alata, Desay, Fleur, Impetigo bush, Candle bush, Ringworm tree, Ringworm bush, Candletree, Candelabra bush, Guajava Empress candle plant, Seven Golden Candlestick, and Christmas candle. 

The constituents are saponins, naringenin, flavonoids, anthraquinones, and yellow chrysophanic acid.  The medicinal properties are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, analgesic, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial.

Health benefits of cassia alata

It is very popular as a remedy to get rid of liver spots, ring worm and other skin disorders.  One of the reasons it is referred to as the ring worm bush is because it is an excellent choice for most fungal infection of the skin, especially ringworm. 

It is also used to treat burns.  To treat liver spots, ringworm and other fungal of the skin, crush the leaves so that the juice is extracted and rub it on the skin.  To treat burns put a crushed leaf on the affected area.

King of the forest medicinal herb can also be used to remedy colds, coughs, hypertension or high blood pressure, acne, impetigo and bites that are venomous.

It is a very versatile medicinal plant with its many uses and that is the reason I think elderly folks adore it so much.  It can also be used to treat inflammation, bronchitis, herpes, gonorrhea, stomach ache, scabies, syphilis, fever, liver conditions and constipation.

In some countries the leaves are used as laxative.  King of the forest plant can also be used to treat asthma, syphilis, fever and stomach ailments.

Extracts from the leaves of King of the forest can be found in shampoos, soaps as well as skin creams.

You can purchase the tea which can be found by one of its common names, Candelabra bush tea or you can make your own tea if you are in possession of the cassia alata medicinal herb.
