Boophane distichia

Also known as Gifbol, it is widely distributed in all provinces of South Africa. This plant is known to be poisonous to cattle and sheep and the Bushman once used the poison for their arrows, however it also has many medicinal uses. Traditional healers use it to treat pain and wounds. The outer covering of the bulb is applied to boils and abscesses; fresh leaves are used to stop bleeding of wounds.
