Jurema Folk Use

In Mexico, Jurema is toasted and powdered bark is a traditional burn remedy and is also used for other skin lesions. It is harvested commercially in great quantities for the purpose of manufacturing into a burn medicine. More recently it has been promoted for treating stomach ulcers.

For references and details concerning traditional uses:
Gonçalves de Lima 1946 Arquivos do Instituto Pesquisas Agronomicas 4: 45-80. (By far, this has the most detailed account of its traditional use, preparations, admixtures, ceremonies and songs.)

Meckes-Lozoya et al. 1990 Archivos de Investigación Médica 21 (2): 175-177

Also Da Mota 1991 "...as jurema told us" who surprisingly discusses the plant jurema almost in passing)
