Wild Ginger

This no simple jungle flower. It is a special ginger from Ulu Limbang which when used (the rhizome) can help heal skin problems.

It is also good for getting rid of itchiness of the skin.

this ginger is not easily found in the urban areas. However some kampong folks who live fairly near the towns and cities may grow them in their kampong.
