Many people believe the herb boldus can help soothe stomach discomfort. In Spanish this herb is known as Boldo. Boldus is often mixed into Yerba Maté but is not only used for herbal tea. In many South American countries it is used like bay leaves to season soups and stews during cooking.
Boldus is native to Chile but is now cultivated all over South America. It is sometimes used in folk medicine. The small green fruit of the boldus tree are tasty and nutritious but are not often eaten. One of the substances (ascaridole) that gives boldus it's flavor is also found in the herb epazote.
