How it looks—It is a medium sized tree usually cultivated in the roads for shade with a smooth light grey bark with dark patches and greenish white flowers. The fruits are dark purple and oblong with pink pulp and a single seed in each.

What we use—Bark, fruits and leaves.

What it does—Bark—astringent, refrigerant, carminative, diuretic, digestive, anthelmintic, constipating Leaves—antibacterial Fruits/seeds—tonic, cooling

How we use it—

In diarrhoea and dysentery—Dried and powdered jamun seeds are mixed with mango seed powder and jaggery. A small roll of this mixture should be taken thrice a day to arrest diarrhoea. Alternately, the powder of the bark should be mixed in milk and honey and consumed twice a day.

In vomiting due to hyperacidity—The cooled decoction of the tender leaves of mango and jamun is mixed with a little honey and taken twice a day for relief from vomiting and burning sensation.

In wounds—The fine powder of the bark is sprinkled on the fresh wound for quick healing and to arrest bleeding.

In bleeding from any orifice—The decoction of the bark powder is cooled and mixed with honey before drinking to arrest the bleeding.

In white discharge- Paste jamun roots in water in which rice has been washed and take it twice a day with the same.

In diabetes—Dried jamun fruit should be powdered with the seeds and a tsp of this powder is taken twice a day to prevent the loss of glucose in urine. The fruit can also generally be included in the diet of a diabetic.

In enlargement of spleen—Take an ounce of the juice of jamun everyday to help improve the general health in this condition.

In difficult micturition—Drink the diluted juice of jamun frequently to increase production of urine and relieve this condition.

In pus-filled wounds—The paste of the leaves serves as a good poultice to drain pus- filled abscesses.

In indigestion—The jamun fruit is a very powerful digestive and can be taken in conditions where even hair has been swallowed.
