Mouth sprue is a ‘simple’ disease, but very annoying. Any delicious food will be torturous if you have sprue. Sprue causes sores in the oral cavity, so it will hurt when you chew any food.

Our elders inherited good jamu to treat mouth sprue, one of which is using daun jarak (castor leaf). The herbal remedy for sprue is written in book Herbal Bali. The book also gives us the steps to make the jamu.

All you need is to fine young daun jarak (castor leaves) and a glass of water. Then boil the leaves. Allow the water to cool down. Use it to rinse your mouth 3-4 times every day.

Use the jamu regularly, and don’t forget to keep your diet and maintain oral hygiene, as it is important to the immune system for preventing canker sores.
