Product Description

Ruellia Tuberosa plant, native to the Caribbean and popularly known as 'Duppy Gun' in Jamaica, is a flowering plant species that is a member of the Acanthaceae family. The plant is also known as Minnie Root, Sheep Potato, Fever Root. Children often have fun with the plant which has pods with seeds that pop loudly when doused with water, hence the name 'Duppy Gun'

The plant has been touted to cleanse the blood, treats kidney disease and whooping cough, high cholesterol, urinary tract infection, stomach inflammations like gastritis, even cancerous tumors and STIs. There is scientific research to substantiate some of these claims.

Natural Pearls of Jamaica sources our Duppy Gun predominantly from the salubrious hills of St. Catherine. Natural Pearls of Jamaica Duppy Gun Plant is free of exposure to pesticides and harmful chemicals or fertilizers as it grows in the wild and untouched areas. The product is wild-crafted and wild-harvested, carefully cleaned, washed, root cleaned and air-dried to preserved its natural healing properties.

In Jamaica, the health benefits of Duppy Gun are derived from the plant’s root and or the leaves. This herbal tea is made by stripping and properly cleaning a sufficient piece of the root or washing a few of the leaves. The piece of root, or leaves, is then allowed to steep in hot water for a few minutes before being sweetened with honey. The Duppy Gun may also be mixed with other herbs to make an even more potent tea.
