Jalapa Root Mirabilis jalapa
In herbal medicine, parts of the plant may be used as a diuretic, purgative, and for vulnerary (wound healing) purposes. The root is believed to be an aphrodisiac as well as having diuretic and purgative properties. It is also used in the treatment of dropsy. The leaves are used to reduce inflammation.
Mirabilis jalapa, the marvel of Peru or four o'clock flower, is the most commonly grown ... Father Plumier assured me that the Jalap, which is brought to us with the root of America, was a true species of Belle de nuit.
