Hibiscus isn’t just great internally—it can improve your skin and hair when applied topically as well. Hibiscus helps the skin retain moisture and supports natural collagen production. It also contains antioxidants and AHAs that help reduce the appearance of pores. Plus, hibiscus is often used to reduce hair shedding and to help stimulate hair growth when applied to the scalp. Some even use it as a hair dye due to its reddish tint. Brew up a tasty drink or a moisturizing skin and hair treat with this whole hibiscus flower. Country of origin: Nigeria. M-R068
How to use hibiscus flower: You can boil it in water to infuse the nutrients, or you can grind it into a powder to be mixed into whatever you want. Making a powder is easy—simply pulse/grind the flowers in a blender until powdered, sieve to ensure a fine size, and you’re done!
For tea: boil ½ cup of hibiscus flower in ¾ cup of water for 5 minutes. Strain. Drink as is or add your favorite flavors like lemon or honey. Chill for iced tea. M-R068
