Pelargonium sidoides


Pelargonium sidoides occurs throughout
the eastern Cape, Lesotho, Free State and
southern and south-western Gauteng in
the Republic of South Africa.

Pelargonium sidoides is called by
Kalwerbossie or Rabassamin South Africa.
However, the name Umckaloabo is most
commonly known and it means "heavy cough".

The Englishman Charles ******* already acknowledged the successful treatment of tuberculosis with umckaloabo in the early 1920’s. Extracts of the root have been available in German pharmacies since 1983 without prescription and have found widespread usage against infections of the sinus, throat and respiratory tract.

The traditional use of Pelargonium sidoides for coughs and chest troubles may be explained by the presence of essential oils. It has not yet been established which ingredients contribute to its antibacterial properties.
