Ethno-pharmacology and Ethno botany, Yarrow and other Indian herbs: As you describe the tongue numbing effects of Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium ) i am reminded of another common Indian herb called Gurmar (Gymnema Sylvestre) whose tongue numbing effects i have myself had the occasion to taste and interestingly both these have been purportedly utilized as anti-diabetics although i am not sure if there is any hard ethno-pharmacological evidence to suggest any effect of benefit.
I am copying this to my friend … with an interest in ethno pharmacology for his inputs.

This is Gymnema sylvestre


I was also thinking about Gur mar Buti


Yes …, you are right!
The leaves are used for the treatment of diabetes, I think.


Yes Sir you are right


The leaves are used in Ayurveda. Confirmation test for Gymnema sylvestre: Chew a few leaves and after a minute put sugar in your mouth. It does not taste sweet!
