Tuberose Materia Medica


Tuberose flowers are diuretic and emetic. An infusion of the flowers and buds can be applied externally to treat acne, enlarged pores and oily skin. In herbal medicine, the tubers are also diuretic and emetic and used to treat gonorrhea and, when mixed with turmeric and butter, raised red rashes in infants. The tubers are also mashed into a paste with the juice of durva grass (Cynoclon dadylon) and applied to swollen inflamed axillary and inguinal lymph nodes.
