100% Hibiscus sabdariffa
Several studies have found that Hibiscus flowers have high vitamin C as well as possessing chemicals that lower blood pressure. In blind tests hibiscus flower tea worked just as well as prescription drugs in about 4 weeks for those with moderate to high blood pressure. The fruit acids present in the Hibiscus flower have proven to be a mild laxative decreasing spams in the stomach whilst also having an antibiotic action that helps rid the intestine of worms and foreign bacteria. Other tests have revealed that Hibiscus could have the ability to reduce the absorption of alcohol and help with alcohol poisoning.
Folklore and history
There seems to be a correlation throughout the world between the Hibiscus flower and feminine energy. In Hawaii if the woman wears a Hibiscus flower over her left ear it signifies that she is in a relationship, whereas wearing the flower over the right ear means that she is available or open to a relationship.
In India the Hibiscus Flower is traditionally used as an offering to goddesses and traditional Southern Indian iconography of the Goddess Kali features Hibiscus flowers heavily. A variation in Greek mythology shows Hibiscus being a potent symbol of beauty where the god Adonis is transformed into a Hibiscus flower and then fought over by the goddesses Aphrodite and Persephone. It is also the main ingredient in our AphrodiTea blend, specifically for it's anti-aging & beauty properties.
