Description:
This name is used to refer to a variety of herbs from the Cyperaceae family. These herbs can be found all year round in humid areas near lagoons and rivers. Some species grow from a bulb that is used in the preparation of a hair rinse, made by grinding the bulb together with seeds from the xcuaana biichi plant and adding water to make a pasty substance, which women apply to their hair to give it a pleasant fragrance. Some people believe that this herb has medicinal properties, and can be used to prepare a tea to treat stomachache, nausea, and menstrual cramps.
