    In the old days many old women chewed this leaves to strengthen their teeth, they wrapped it first before being chewed. I can see it in my mom’s, in the age of 65 she still can use her teeth to chew even the hard meat. Good job mom!

    Betel leaves can be used to heal wounds. The juice of a few leaves should be extracted and applied to the wound. A betel leaf should then be wrapped over and bandaged. A single application will heal the wound within 2 days. Also for the nose bleeding.

    The most common uses for this leaves is as a genital wash, not by men, but by women. Indonesian women use it widely after giving birth, and they do so explicitly to make their husbands happier. Betel leaves cause genital shrinkage in women, as well as genital dryness. For women in their late twenties and thirties, the problem is not so much vaginal dryness but vaginal wetness, that can cause itchiness and odor, so they boiled the leaves and use it for genital wash. It’s not only for their own pleasure but for the pleasure of their partners.
