    Hello,

    Thanks in advance.


    Sentence 1

    Sometimes you might know about this, tender coffee leaves use as a medicine in here to stop bleeding and for scratches etc

    Sentence 2

    Sometimes you might know about this, tender coffee leaves are using as a medicine in here to stop bleeding and for scratches etc

    Iím not a teacher.

    I think Passive voice in Present tense is more correct:

    Sometimes you might know about this, tender coffee leaves are used as a medicine in here to stop bleeding and for scratches etc.

    Re: which is more accurate and why

    Not sure what the first clause is doing... Perhaps 'You or customers] might be interested to know that...' Ususally adverts like this in shops just say what they have to say, without so much as one verb - e.g. 'Fair trade coffee only'.
