COMMON NAME: Boldo

LATIN NAME: Peumus boldus

ORIGIN: Chile

HABITAT: Naturally, Boldo grows in the central regions of Chile and Argentina, as well as in South America and North Africa. This plant is cultivated in Chile, Peru, in the Mediterranean countries.

Boldo prefers rather dry habitats. Collection of its leathery leaves with short petioles is carried out throughout the year, which makes it unusual in comparison with other herbaceous plants.

BOTANICAL INFORMATION:

Boldo (lat. Peumus boldus) is the only representative of the monotypic genus of dicotyledonous plants that is part of the Monimiaceae family.

Boldo is an evergreen tree up to 7 m in height, sometimes growing like a shrub. All parts of the plant have a strong spicy specific odor, similar to the scent of cinnamon and camphor.

The opposite arrangement of leaves with a wedge-shaped base gives it a special charm. They are elliptical in shape and rounded at the ends. The tuberous surface of the leaves is covered with interesting bubble-like bulges, called papules, from below and from above. Bearing bunches of incredibly small hairs are located on them. Petiole of leaf is very short. Dioecious flowers are presented in short end panicle type inflorescences and axillary inflorescences.

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION:

Ascaridol, eucalyptol and cimol, various alkaloids (boldin and others), some flavonoids, and also essential oils containing eugenol, limonene and cumene were found in the composition of the boldo plant. The bark of the plant contains a large amount of tannins.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Boldo is not recommended to use for those who suffer from severe liver diseases and blockage of the biliary tract.

This plant should not be consumed by people who take anticoagulants.

Breast-feeding and pregnant women should avoid using this plant.

INTERESTING FACTS:

In some countries Boldo is used as a seasoning for vegetable dishes instead of Bay leaves.

Boldo wood is very hard, therefore, it is used in the woodworking and coal industries. Bark of boldo is used in the manufacture of paint.
