Anamu (aka Guinea Hen Weed & Petiveria) is used in teas, extracts & other forms. It is native to southern USA, Mexico, Central America, Caribbean and South America.
Anamu is used in teas, extracts, capsules, powder and other preparations. The leaves and roots are used with medicinal purposes. It is known to aid in the following:
- Lower blood sugar levels
- Eliminate cancer cells
- It is also known to repel mosquitos
In our permaculture farm at Rossi Naturals we grow Anamu in various areas, we use it in our teas and it works fantastic in repelling mosquitos. The Anamu is closely related to the garlic family, it will leave a garlic like odor when consumed in high quantity, this is the reason why moquitos dislike it so much.
Anamu will reproduce at various times of the year, our first anamu plant gave us a total of 8 baby plants which are now planted in our farm. We harvest the leaves regularly and put them available for sale as soon as they are washed and lightly dried.
All the products we sell at Rossi Naturals (seeds, leaves, slips, plants, roots) are grown and harvested in our own permaculture farm in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. We do not purchase anything from other farms or vendors, you can be assured anything you buy from us comes from our very property.
We love mixing some mint or chamomile or lemon grass with my anamu & honey. You really can't go wrong with mixing flavors & anamu will help enhance the healing powers of your tea. Try adding teas like this to your routine at least 3 times a week for great results.
Be sure to order some Anamu leaves for your teas from us. They are grown right in our farm and they are harvested by us on the same day we ship your order. We wash them and prepare them before shipping so they arrive in the best possible condition right to your door.
