Medicinal Trees

My neighbour Musa, a beekeeper, knows a lot about nature. Walking through the garden, he shows me what grows here and what its nutritional and medicinal values are. This tree (right) is a Dembo Tree. If you cut the bark and cook it in some water, it is a cure for diarrhea, as he told me. I am also very fortunate to have a Santang Tree (left). It was there all along! Its sap gives “churail”, the best natural incense, to my opinion. It smells wonderfull and is used for special times, mainly in bedrooms…. Anybody know how to spell “churail”, btw? Google says this spelling means “female ghost, spirit, jinn”, a very scary one with red eyes…I wonder if it has anything to do with it?
