Kenkeliba is mainly found in the countries of the Sahel. The leaves are used externally to heal wounds. Internally, the herbal tea is consumed to relieve a multitude of ailments. That's why it has been nicknamed "the herbal tea of long life". It can replace coffee or tea with its slightly woody taste. In sub-Saharan Africa, it is highly coveted during Ramadan to break the fast(helps cleanse the liver). As a cold drink, it is consumed with mint or lemongrass to improve digestion.
