Tetrapleura tetraptera is a species of flowering plant in the pea family native to Western Africa. The plant is called Prekese in the Twi language of Ghana. It is also called Uhio in the Igbo Language of Nigeria, The tree has many uses.
The tree has many uses. Its sweet fragrance is highly valued, its fruit is used to spice dishes such as Banga soup, and its bark is used for medicinal purposes and for solving problems. This article will show you the spiritual benefits of prekese.
Spiritually, Prekese is said to be a blessing when the tree is found in your home. It is said to drive away evil spirits. Apparently, according to local tales, some even used prekese to keep evil spirits away claiming that the evil spirits don’t like its smell.
Prekese is also mixed with clay in it powdery state and applied to the chest of mothers who have just given birth which makes me suspect it has lactogenic properties. When added to “light pepper soup” for these same nursing mothers it accelerates blood flow helping them to eliminate blood clots. It’s also applied to joints as an anti-inflammatory agent.
