Growing up in the early 90s, there was always a scent leaf plant nearby. The reason was not far-fetched, scent leaf was the go-to medicine for almost every ailment we had as children.
Each time we complained of any minor ailment, our mum would pluck some scent leaf, wash them, squeeze out the juice and give to us to drink. We only went to the hospital when we were really sick with high temperature or fever, every other thing was treated with scent leaf juice.
If we had any minor cut or wound while playing, scent leaf would be plucked, squeezed and the juice applied on the cuts and wounds. Before long, the wound would heal.
