III. Review and literature and Conceptual Framework a.) Related literature Blumea balsamifera is used as an herbal treatment for the common cold and as a diuretic in the Philippines medicine, commonly known as SAMBONG.

b.) Conceptual framework and Variables


PURPOSE OF STUDY STUDY PROCESS AND PRODUCTS

To verify the healing strength of herbal plants

Planning for the project

Gathering the facts To cure muscle pains Perform the study


To replace those prices medicine into cheaper ones

Do the observation conclusion

Fig. 1 purpose and process of the study

Independent variable

Dependent of variable

Kinds of herbal plants

To the efficiency of the liniment.

Fig.1.2 Schematic diagram of the variables of the study.

The figure shows the relationship between the independent variable and dependent variable. The efficiency of the product as a liniment depends on the kind of herbal plants and its chemical composition.

c) Hypothesis The more sambong leaf extract are used, the more healing strength will be offered by it.

If the sambong extract are added with other indigenous herbal plants, then, the liniment produced will be more effective.

IV Methodology Materials: Test tube Test tube holder Drainer Mortar Boiling pot Clean clothes Jars

In making the herbal liniment: Get the ingredients: o Ginger o Gabon Crush the Gabon and ginger and get their extract then boil. Drain the extract to make sure that there was no left crushed ginger Add siling labuyo Mix and Place in a container and let it cool.

V - TRIALS CONDUCTED Trial 1 Get the ingredients Ginger Gabon Get the extract of the Gabon by squeezing it. Crush the ginger and get its extract Mix the substance and let it cool down

Unfortunately trial 1, has failed. It was stored for 2-3 days but it produces a foul odor. Consumers would like to use it and apply it to their skin, they will have a stinky skin.

11

Trial 2 Get the ingredients Ginger Gabon Boil the gabon and get the extract. Crush the ginger , boil and it and get its extract Mix the substance and let it cool down

Trial 2, has also failed. The substance didnt mix. The ginger extract was floating but still the researchers will find ways to be able to achieve their goals.

12

Trial 3 Get the ingredients Ginger Gabon Boil the Gabon(leaves) after boiling get its leaves then place the crush ginger Drain the extract to make sure that there was no left crushed ginger Place in a container Let it cool.

Trial 3, worked but still there should be more improvement. We still need a lot of gabon to make it more green and more ginger to make it more soothing when it is applied to the skin. So, we will be increasing the number of gabon and ginger and lessen the water (used for boiling).

13

Trial 4

Get the ingredients Ginger Gabon Place the gabon in the pot without putting water let it boil with its own fluid. Place the ginger in the pot without putting water. Get the extract and mix Let it cool down

Trial 4 has failed; the mixture was so sticky and instead of aiming to look like a liniment but it looks like a lubricant. But despite what happened the proponents will still find some alternatives to reach their objectives.

14

Trial 5 Get the ingredients Crush the Gabon and ginger and get their extract then boil. Drain the extract to make sure that there was no left crushed ginger Add siling labuyo Mix and Place in a container and let it cool.

On our trial 5, at last it was succeeded. Its not that sticky and its very effective. It has soothing feeling when applied to the skin, and this time it is a lot greener.

VI - OBSERVATION AND DATA ANALYSIS Trial 1 Time of Boiling mL of Water mL of Sambong Extract mL of other indigenous plants extract

Trial 2 Time of Boiling mL of Water mL of Sambong Extract mL of other indigenous plants extract

Trial 3 Time of Boiling mL of Water mL of Sambong Extract mL of other indigenous plants extract

Trial 4 Time of Boiling mL of Water mL of Sambong Extract mL of other indigenous plants extract

Trial 5 Time of Boiling mL of Water mL of Sambong Extract mL of other indigenous plants extract

The table shows the qualitative data of the proponents experiment. Trial 1 and 2 had failed because of its stinky odor while Trial 3 is nearer to what theyve expected. So, they found ways in solving those problems. They tried their planned ideas in Trial 4 but it doesnt work. Fortunately, in Trial 5, it was not stinky when it will be applied to our skin.

VII Recommendation

The researchers recommend to use sambong leaves which are newly sprout, baby ginger and cayenne (it could be ripe or not) so that the liniment could contain the necessary minerals. The proponents would also recommend using many sambong than the number of ginger and cayenne. In conducting the procedure, its better to boil the mixture with the desired time, two to five minutes as long as the concoction looks frost green. You can do this experiment at home or at the laboratory. But its better to be at the laboratory for you to use appropriate apparatus.

VIII Conclusion The researchers concluded that blumea balsamifera (sambong) and along with other indigenous plants like: zingeber officinale (ginger) and capsicum fastigiatum blume (cayenne) are effective to use as an herbal linim. Blumea balsamifera is one of the herbal plants here in the Philippines and approved by the PDOH (Philippine Department of Health) as an alternative medicine in treating particular disorders and it has been found that sambong use to be an santi-diarrhea and anti-spasm.
