Bayabas (bye-yah-bas) - meaning Guava
Guava leaves have an extensive history in many folk medicine applications, not only in the Philippines, but around the world.
These organically grown leaves were hand-picked, cleaned, dried, and shamanically blessed on our own land. They come from a very special tree with an ancestral story that separates it from all others. It is routinely cleansed and honored with "usok," a smoking ritual with prayers and blessings.
The leaves can be made into a decoction used as tea, an overall healing tonic, a wound wash, an after-birth perineum care wash, or a calming solution for rashes and other skin ailments.
Another application of guava leaves is to use it as a spiritual smudging tool. Burning guava leaves is an ancient Filipino practice that is used to cleanse negative energies from the environment, just as white sage is used by Native Americans in cleansing and sending up prayers. My grandfather once told me that when he was in the Philippines, he saw an “albularyo” (plant medicine healer). He would prescribe for him to stand above a pile of smoking guava leaves to not only spiritually cleanse him, but to also alleviate the itching of his rashes. If you were to use the leaves for smudging, it is highly recommended to do so in a heat-resistant bowl, as guava leaves burn hot and fast. Use with caution.
