Spanish Needle

Spanish Needle

Spanish Needle grows freely in Jamaica and is also known by names such as Black Jack, Needle Grass, Broomstick, Beggars Tick and Demon Spike Grass.

The plant has been used in traditional medicine for infections from wounds, upper respiratory tract infections like colds and flu, urinary tract infections as well as venereal diseases.

The leaves, seeds and roots of Spanish needles have also been reported to possess antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-malarial, diuretic, as well as hypotensive properties.
You probably won’t be able to find this herb in your local health food store or medicine supplier, so you may want to track it down locally or contact a regional herbalist or wildcrafter to purchase it from.

The most common way of using it is a simple tea of the dried plant. This tea works wonderfully internally, or externally as a wash for wounds, sore eyes or as a nasal spray.
The herb is also beneficial for joint discomfort, swellings, colic, stomach ailments along with the cold and flu.

Due to the plant’s antiseptic properties, plant extract may also be used as a natural mouthwash to combat odor causing germs along with sore gums and mouth.
In Jamaica, they make a tea from the leaves (or the flowers soaked in rum) for colds and toothache. For colic or worms they prepare a mixed infusion of leaves and root.
Spanish needles possess a remarkable capacity for healing, and many herbalists use them as as ingredient in tonics for mucus membranes.
