Madder/Manjith

Also known as

madder
Latin : Rubia cordifolia

English : Madder root

Sanskrit : Manjistha, Yojanavalli

Hindi : Manjith

Marathi : Manjistha

Tamil : Sevvalli

Telugu : Tamravalli

Malayalam : Mancatti

Kannada : Manjistha

"That which wins the heart" is the meaning of the Sanskrit word Manjistha

How it looks—It is a very variable, prickly climbing perennial herb with long, smooth, reddish cylindrical roots and 4-angled rough stems. The leaves are rounded or slightly heart shaped and the flowers are white green, yellowish or reddish and sweet-scented. The fruits are purplish black when ripe with 2 seeds.

What we use—Roots

What it does—It is bitter, astringent, thermogenic, anti-inflammatory, anodyne, antiseptic, digestive, carminative, anthelmentic, antidysenteric, emmenagogue, diuretic, galactopurifier, alterant, febrifuge and tonic.

How we use it

As a blood purifier—The decoction of the roots of madder is indicated in all skin disorders like fungal infections eczema, psoriasis and discolourations .Even in diabetic wounds, the feet should be immersed in the cooled decoction of madder every day for rapid healing. This is due to the antiseptic and astringent properties of madder.

As a cosmetic—In blackened patches over the face, long-term use of madder and milk as a face pack ensures lightening of patches and normal colouration of skin.

In scanty menses—Drink a decoction of madder roots for an entire menstrual cycle everyday to correct anaemia if any and establish a healthy flow of menstrual blood.

In sore throat—For reviving an over used throat, drink hot milk with a tsp of madder root powder and some sugar in it.

In scanty urination—Being diuretic, a decoction of sandal or khaskhas roots along with madder ensures free flow of urination.

In swellings—For the same reason, it removes excess fluid from the body through urine and aids reduction of swelling.

In bleeding disorders—As it is a haematinic and improves both the quality and quantity of blood, it is highly indicated in excessive bleeding from any orifice and from wounds.
