Medicinal Herb information

Unless otherwise indicated, the descriptions of the use of the medicinal plants relate to Ethiopian traditional herbal medicine practices. “Western herbal medicine” refers to the herbal medicine from the tradition of America and Europe.

Artemisia abyssinica

Artemisia Abyssinica_BotanicaEethiopia2011

Artemisia Abyssinica

Artemisia abyssinica or Chikugn (Amharic) is a species of wormwood that is traditionally used for intestinal problems, for infectious diseases, and is anti-leishmanial (acts against Leishmania parasites).  The whole herb can be used to address tonsillitis, and an infusion is traditionally drunk as a remedy for colds, and sickness in children.

Ocimum lamifolium


Used to treat coughs and colds, the fresh leaves are squeezed and the juice sniffed. The juice can also be used as an eye rinse for eye infection.  Also used for mich, an infection of fever with headache and mouth blisters.


Zingibil (Amhar); Dendabil (Tig.)

Zingiber officinale – Ginger (family Zingiberaceae)

Zingibil or Ginger. Image:

The rhizome (root) of ginger is popularly used in Ethiopia for stomachache and respiratory problems. It is chewed or masticated with ‘feto’ (Lepidium sativum) for stomach disorders.

It is also popularly used for its carminative (relieves gas ) and anti-nausea activities.

Ginger is equally popular in western herbal medicine and there has been extensive investigation of the rhizome and its constituents.  Zingiber officinale has demonstrated anti-inflammatory effects, as well as anti-platelet, antioxidant, antitumour, antirhinoviral and antihepatoxic activities (preventing damage to the liver) (Wohlmuth, 1999).

Gisewa (Amhar) or Withania somnifera  

(family Solanaceae)

Gisewa or Withania Somnifera. Image:

Known to be used for coughs and asthma, as a narcotic and an anti-epileptic in Ethiopia.  Research notes other traditional uses for headache (as a dressing), paludism (malaria), ague, fever, stomachache and as a diuretic.  The smoke of the burning root is commonly inhaled for ‘Satan beshita’ or ‘devil disease’ (Asres 2001).

Withania or Gisewa is also found to have antifertility properties and to be traditionally used as a vaginal douche (aqueous extract) for its uterotonic and anti-implantation activity on butanol fraction extract (Desta, 1994).

Western herbalists are familiar with Withania (Ashwaganda), and it is used as tonic. In Western herbal medicine, decoction or extract made from the root  is a popular remedy from the ayurvedic tradition, as an ‘adaptogen’ remedy and for the treatment of debility and nervous exhaustion, for convalescence and as a general tonic (Mills and Bone, 2000).

Kebercho (Amhar), Kerebicho (Or.)

Echinops kebericho (family Asteraceae)

Echinops Kebericho. Image: wikispecies

Echinops Kebericho. Image: wikispecies

Endemic to Ethiopia, Echinops kebericho, is used for fever and as a taenicidal herb (to expell tapeworm).

The smoke from burning the plant is inhaled to relieve headache and also as a cure for “evil eye” (possession by evil spirits in Ethiopian folk religion).

The root is burned for smoke to ward off mosquitoes and as a snake repellant in the house.  The smoke is inhaled to fight  typhus and fever, and is known to be used as a fumigant, mainly after childbirth. The root is also chewed to alleviate stomach ache.

Verbena officinalis or Atuch (Amharic)

(family Verbenaceae)

Verbena officinalis. Image: Leo Michels

In Ethiopian traditional practice, the roots of Verbena or Atuch, are soaked in water and drunk to expel roundworm, help with snake bite, and relieve stomach ache and diarhoea.

A ‘herb of all trades’, Verbena is found to have antimicrobial properties and is traditionally used for treating tropical ulcers.

Mixed with olive oil, the juice of the fruit is used as ear drops and a juice made by crushing the fresh leaves, filtering and mixing with honey, is also used to alleviate dry cough in Ethiopia.

Fennel or Ensilal (Amharic)

Foeniculum vulgare  (family Apiaceae)

Fennel. Image:

In Ethiopia, the boiled or roasted roots of Ensilal or Fennel are traditionally used to treat gonorrohoea, digestive disorders and infant colic.

The juice of the fresh or dried leaves is used to stem nosebleeds and the plant is also known for its anti-fertility properties. Studies record the traditional use of an oral application of the fresh Fennel leaf as an antifertility remedy (Desta, 1995).

Western herbalists are familiar with the use of Fennel seed as a carminative and digestive; and evidence from randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trials suggest that Fennel is effective in reducing infantile colic (Natural Standard, 2010).  Clinical trials also support the use of Fennel in combination with other herbs for dyspeptic conditions of the upper GIT, including pain, nausea, belching and heartburn; chronic non-specific colitis, diarrhoea or constipation.

Aloe vera (family Asphodelaceae)

Aloe vera, or Eret in Amharic, is known for its cooling and cathartic properties. It is used in Ethiopia for fever, spleen and liver troubles, as well as ‘knee troubles in old age’ and ‘eye treatment’.

The juice of the plant would  be used on the breast of nursing mothers to assist with weaning as its bitter taste would discourage the baby from suckling.  The juice of the leaf  is also known to be given to a mother  in childbirth to ease labour.

In western medicine, the fresh juice of the Aloe vera plant is used as a topical application to cool burns, and the juice is taken orally for digestive disturbance.

Artemisia afra

Artemisia Afra. Image: Metafro

Called Ariti in Ethiopia (Amhar), the juice of the crushed leaves of this plant is mixed with water or honey and administered orally to address stomach pain in Ethiopian traditional medicine practice.

The essential oil of Artemisia Afra has antimicrobial properties. In South Africa, it is one of the most popular and commonly used herbal medicines for treating various ailments; from coughs and colds to malaria and diabetes.

    I am desperately looking for the Ethiopian herb called: “Adam’s Head”; it is fuzzy & has a strong smell, while fresh or dried, but a very pleasant taste as a medicinal tea. Used by the Ethiopians for all kinds of ailments.
    Can anybody tell me the botanical name & if we can find it in either the US or Europe?

    August 28, 2011
    • Hi Constanze
      I’m not familiar with this, and my research so far has failed to find reference to this herb by this name but I will ask at Addis Ababa University and the Institute of Biodiversity Conservation, and keep it in mind on my searches. Certainly if we can find a botanical name that would help. I will let you know as soon as I find out anything useful. How did you come across it?
      Kind regards, Lizzie

      Hi again Constanze
      Abi and Mohammed have come up with the right answer I think. I wasn’t aware of the name “Adam’s Head” but “Tenadam” (Amharic) or Ruta Chalapensis is commonly found in Ethiopia and is as you describe. I saw it in many areas and is a popular herb and well known by many. It has a lovely smell and at one coffee shop in Addis it was placed on the saucer for me to add to the coffee. I will feature the herb soon on the blog, with more information.

      March 22, 2012
      • Philippe Schmitter #

        You are quite right about its role in the coffee cermemony. Does it have any relationship to Ruta which we have in Italy? I tried it in my coffee the other day, but the effect was different and much less potent.

    Hi Yosef
    High blood pressure can have many causes, and it is best to speak to a health care practitioner who is qualified to help you. Are you in Ethiopia? A herbalist in Ethiopia would in most cases be more qualified than I am to discuss Ethiopian herbs helpful for managing the symptoms associated with high blood pressure. There is a shop called Ariti Herbals in Addis which might also be able to direct you to the right place, if you live in that area, and they have a range of herbal teas that would be helpful for nervous system support, and Ecopia. Both of these places have websites. From my research, herbs mentioned as having hypotensive properties include Digita (Calpurnia aurea), Abish (Fenugreek: Trigonellum foenum-graecum), Nech shinkurt (garlic: Allium sativum), Attuch/Telenj (Verbena officinalis). All are mentioned as being used as a tea, but a herbalist will tell you the right dosage and how to administer, and what is safe for you to use. I hope this is helpful for you.

      Hi MesayT
      I am not familiar with this one but looked it up: most references say that Wegert is Silene macroselen, a shrub of the caryophyllaceae family. It is used in beekeeping, and as a smoking material for milk containers. It is also mentioned for use against tapeworm

    is lepidum sativum ( feto) is used as insect repellent? if yes , w/c part is used as insect repellent? In addition method of application. i need the answer as soon as possible. thank U

    January 23, 2013
    • lizziedavigdor #

      Hi Teklu
      The householders at Fiche described the use of the seeds of Lepidium sativum, (feto) ground with lemon juice and mixed with water and taken orally, to treat megagne, or unexplained stomach ache, but no mention was made of its use as an insect repellent.
      There are however various mentions in the literature of topical applications of the ground seed for insect repellent activity, including within Ethiopia. It may be useful to direct your enquiry to the experts at the Faculty of Science at Addis Ababa University, or to the Institute of Biodiversity Conservation in Addis Ababa for up to date references and data regarding the use of Ledpidum sativum as an insect repellent in Ethiopia

    Hello everybody, i’m a cultural anthropology student and i read something on this website about medicinal plants used against evil eye or buda in Ethiopia. This is a herbal mix of which two different debteras in Tigray told me (i’m not quite sure of the orthography): (1) Tena baria, (2) Tena adam (Ruta chalensis), (3) Harie derho (which are the excrements of a hen), (4) Dama kese (Ocimum lamiifolium), (5) Shinfai, (6) the root part of Giraw (Acacia abyssinica). Is there anybody who is able to tell me the scientific name of tena baria and shinfai?? Thanks

    January 30, 2013
    • Fisseha Demoze #

      “Shinfai” pronounced as ‘shinfa-e’ in Tigrigna Language; “feto” in Amharic Language, and a scientific name name “Lepidium Sativum”; and in English “garden cress”

      Hi; my name is Gizachew Wondemu. Am an Ethiopian working as a farm manager in a flower farm located 20 km from Addis on Ambo road. We are at an altitude of 2600m ASL. If there is any one interested to multiply medicinal plants by our farm we are happy to work with. We do have a greenhouse built for this with most of agricultural inputs. Glad to surf by this web. Thanks

    Chenabaria I could already find back. But if somebody has any idea what ‘shinfai’ can be, you can always let me know. Thanks

    January 30, 2013
  20. lizziedavigdor #

    Hi Sil

    The Flora of Ethiopia lists Shinfai as Justicia schimperiana (Acanthaceae), which I believe is Sensel (Amhar), described by Giday et al 2007 as used for skin lesions. I have not come across Tena baria yet. All the best with your studies!

    February 24, 2013

    Hi Sil
    Just to follow up on Chenabaria – that may be a local name for Artemisia afra.

    Hi, I just wanted to add that I have also really enjoyed “tena adam” in my coffee, and Ethiopian friends all had it growing in their yards for general medicinal use. I belong to an organic CSA farm in CT and I just discovered it growing in our herb section! But now I see there is some contradiction between its scientific names– is it Ruta Chalapensis or Ruta Chalensis? I want to share this with my fellow gardeners! Thanks!

    August 2, 2013
    • lizziedavigdor #

      Hi Carol
      A belated response from me – apologies. It’s botanical name is Ruta chalepensis L. (Rutaceae)

      September 3, 2014
  28. There are more than what is mentioned above, please keep adding the likes of engudai,kereshashimbo , digita dign,anketa,koso ,kitikita among the few
    If a donkey eats engudai dies unless given kereshashimbo, and vice versa.
    digita is used to cure animals skin problem. Aniketa, dign with alchohol for stomach ,koso for tape worms and kitikita for malaria.

Hi i am 45 years old female, am an Ethiopian living abroad and my question is i recently noted that I had Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer and i heard that shiferaw and mustard cure the cancer is that true? if it is am willing to come home and take herbal medicine instead of surgery please advise. Thanking you in advance :)

    August 24, 2014
  41. lizziedavigdor #

    Hi Nunu
    I’m sorry to hear you have had a diagnosis of ductal carcinoma. It would be important for you to receive advice on your treatments from your doctor and qualified health care practitioners who are familiar with the treatments involved and can support you throughout. Often it might be a case of surgery with support of good nutrition and possibly herbs, but you do need qualified advice which hopefully you can access where you are currently living. I’m afraid I am not familiar with the shiferaw and mustard treatment; I believe shiferaw is the Moringa Tree, which has many medicinal properties and some evidence of anti-cancer effects, but I would recommend that you seek advice on this by visiting a practitioner who understands the evidence for its use. All the best, Lizzie

    September 3, 2014
    • Thank you Lizzie for your prompt reply and advise, I did my surgery last week on 27th of August removed the breast lump and a surrounding margin of normal tissue and the lymph nodes and this week my Dr. informed me a good news that the surrounding margin of normal tissue and lymph nodes both No contained cancer. Thanks GOD!! :)
