Surathura Spice and Herbal Garden, Matale, Sri Lanka 11 September 2011

It was an educational and informative stop at Surathura Spice and Herbal Garden. After a month, it was a challenge for me to remember what I have learnt.

Coconut oil. use to massage the scalp, to encourage hair growth.

The concoction of spice tea  - cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, coriander and 2-3 drops of vanilla essence.

Herbal balm made of native medicinal plants to use against headache.

Cocoa tree.

Cocoa beans

Vanilla pod and essence.


Coffee beans.

It was rainy season at Matale and so many worms were spotted crawling out of the damp underground.

Look at the soil on the ground. To me, it is so fertile that anything can grow on it.
Our guide, Athula was a pleasant young man and he shared generously.
He can be reached  at surathura_herbs@yahoo.com

The information and demonstration on the use of ayurvedic medicinal plants was so lengthy that I have to cut it short.
