Dabi- Puzzlenut – Local plant medicine

A number of years ago I came across three trees growing on a coastline. All three had been hacked left right and centre, with between them had only a few straggly branches. This undoubtedly done for use of its amazing medicinal properties as there were many other trees about but all touched only by the elements.

The Dabi plant or puzzle nut/ cannonball mangrove is highly medicinal. It is antioxidant, antimicrobial and astringent, with the bark and leaves are both used.

 Now some six years later they are clothed in all their glory and we have an abundance of  enigmatic beautiful puzzle nuts and a  new shoot to boot!

The nut once opened is impossible to put back together without it’s skin.. It wants to move, spread and grow! For each segment is a seed.

Deep gratitude to these three trees who now gift us seeds to sow and spread their healing as they themselves heal.
