Traditional Folk Remedies from Ecuador

Cough remedy - infusion of muyoyu flowers. In latin the name is Cordea Lutea. Add a handful of these bright yellow flowers to boiling water. Turn off water and let steep for 15 minutes. Drink. I believe this is a Galapagos remedy. I haven't heard of anyone in Ecuador ever using these flowers for coughs.
