The main reason for Lagochilus inebrians rarity within the ethnobotanical community is due to the fact that its now extremly rare in its native habitat and is only found growing in very rural and inhospitable mountainous areas.
Traditionally certain mountainous tribes-people used to make a tea from this herb for its unique sedative and intoxicating properties.
The scientific name, Lagochilus inebrians comes from the Greek Lagos which means a hair and Cheilos which means a lip. Inebrians means intoxicating.
High doses can be quite intoxicating as its common name suggests. The active ingredient is called Lagochilin which is prized for its sedative and medicinal properties. In smaller doses it is used to treat medical problems such as hypertonic illness, diathesis, glaucoma, stomach ulcer and duodenal gut problems. Traditionally to treat such ailments, 10gm of dried plant material are ground up and added to 200ml of boiling water for about 10 minutes. It is then allowed to cool at room temperature and strained. One to two tablespoons of the liquid are drunk 3 to 5 times daily.
