is a native tree of the Andes in South America.
It has been used to stem bleeding problems going back into antiquity. Like
AO Chima Matiku
, a liquid version we sold years ago, it is made using
variations of Matiku, different in taxonomic classification, but identical in ethnobotanical use. We encourage
those wanting more information to read the AO Chima Matiku
ground leaf of Aristeguietia glutinosa L
(from Loja Province, Ecuador) and
Piper aduncum L.
For minor bleeding problems, where the application can
be touched, dab on a thin layer of the cream, twice daily. Use as need to arrest bleeding. In cases where the
application area does not lend itelf to being touched, take a Q-Tip® and dab the cream on sufficient to cover
the desired area -- again, twice a day.
In keeping with its long-standing, traditional use,
Matiku Healing Cream
should be used for minor, capillary bleeding issues. It is not designed for use on
arterial or venal hemorrhages, for which one should seek immediate medical attention.
