Hibiscus Ground Flowers
The Hibiscus is a Sun plant, but the large funnel-shaped flower also means it is sometimes associated with Venus. The ground flower petals are traditionally considered to stimulate the libido, and are used as a coffee substitute when taken with a pinch of lemongrass.
To make a tea, infuse 1-2 tablespoons of the flowers in boiling water; strain after 5-10 minutes.
This remarkable plant was first used in Upper Egypt and has only grown in popularity for its color, as well as the flavor that it adds to a variety of drinks and teas. Hibiscus not only makes a tasty drink, but is an excellent source of flavonoids, and also, gossypetin and anthocyanins, including hibiscin.
