Properties : Hibiscus powder strengthens the hair, makes it shine and stimulates their grows. Associated with henna, it gives tones of red and mahogany with hair. Rich in antioxidants and fruit acids, it is also a wonderful ingredient for anti-aging care. It gives a pink/purple color to formulas like soaps. Internally, the hibiscus has a tangy taste, interesting in certain dishes. It is a very soft laxative, a diuretic, a hypotensive, an antibacterial and an anti-inflammatory.
Precautions : Do not take with medication for hypotension.
Add boiling water to form a paste. Let cool and apply by massaging the scalp, then rinse abundantly. Finish with vinegar water rinse or a hibiscus rinsing lotion.
Plant powders' uses: In capsules, in food, in smoothie, in pastilles and energy balls, then externally (cosmetics, ointments, poultices). Unless exceptional, plant powders are not soluble in water, although several molecules they contain. For better results, it is preferable to extract these molecules in water, alcohol or in oil (certain molecules are fat -soluble). For more information, the Schools Flowers offers an introductory workshop and an à la carte course on the manufacture of therapeutic products.
We advise to consult a health professional before using medicinal plants, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or under medication.
