In Indonesia, many plants that are useful, can be used for health (herbs, etc.) or beauty (cosmetics, etc.). But not yet processed maximally. Some people use a direct, knowing that if the plant is useful. Do you know the plant is and for what you use?

Betel leaves are used as a stimulant, an antiseptic and a breath-freshener. In Ayurvedic medicine, they are used as an aphrodisiac. In Malaysia, they are used to treat headaches, arthritis and joint pain.
