Clinacanthus Nutans Leaves




Also called "Sabah Snake Grass" or "Barleria Lupulina"in Thai Traditional Medicine, the Clinacanthus Nutans (from the Acanthaceae family) is used to heal skin irritation across Asia : insect bites, burns, exzema, psoriasis, zoster infection or herpes rash. This anti-inflammatory & anti-viral effect is due to the ingredients of Lupeol and Beta-sitosterol into Clinacanthus Nutans leaves. Please note that this product is not a drug, it does not treat the cause of irritation, but it helps to relieve the symptom.

With its camphor & menthol base, Clinacanthus Nutans balm helps soothe cough & discomfort caused by nasopharyngitis in a simple way, a bit like a poultice (for those who have experienced this when a child): at bedtime, apply a small amount of balm on the upper chest.

Spread well until the green color disappears.

Cover with a cloth to keep in place, warm and limit tasks.

Thai herbs benefits


Thailand has a strong ancient tradition about herbs medicine, famous worldwide. Despite Lemon Import products are not medicine, the use of herbs based actives is in line with this tradition.


Thereby, Clinacanthus Nutans is one of these plants, widely used in traditional thai medicine to ease skin irritations like insects or snakes bites, scorch or sting. Spreading Clinacanthus Nutans on them helps to heal itching & has a immediate soothing effect.



Context. Family business since 4 generation, Cher-aim provides wellness products made with Thai medicinal herbs. In Thailand, knowledge about plants & their use is shared in temples. A century ago, one of the ancestors of Cher-aim has been studying as a monk in Bangkok's Wat Pho, one of the most sacred temples, famous for its traditional medicine school. Nowadays, this influence is still being perpetuated in Cher-aim's products range.


Cher-aim. In ancient Thai, the name "Cher-aim" means fertile tree. This name takes its roots into the field of luxuriance of nature & spreading vitality.



K Tarn & his duty : transmit traditionnal knowledge about herbal uses in Thailand.



Thai traditional medicine has an approach based on energy flow across the whole body. This flows paths, disruption that may obstruct them & the way to restore them have been studied by monks & traditional healer.

Among Thai contemporary urban society, this approach still has a place. In front of disease, the purpose is to consider that the patient seeks to restore the balance by focusing on 3 ways :

  • An external action (especially through massage or use of medicinal plants applied onto the body)
  • An internal action (especially through the use of medicinal plants or specific diet)
  • A spirituality (especially through relaxation techniques)


Those practices were mainly influenced over time by Chinese Traditional Medicine, Ayurveda, yoga & buddhism.


Inhalers, balms, oils & other Cher-aim products are straight on line with this approach. They drew their potential from this heritage of knowledge usually transmetted in Thai Buddihst temples. Nowadays, Cher-aim still has a special relationship with the Wat Pho's traditional medicine school in Bangkok.
