Hibiscus, also known as "Rose Mallow", is a member of the Malvaceae or "Mallow" family. Originating from China and India, this beautiful plant likes to grow in warm climates with lots of sun. Historically, it was used as medicine by making tea from the flowers which was to treat high blood pressure and common colds. In ancient China, they would give bouquets of hibiscus not just for romantic gesture but for wealth, personal success and fame. Today, hibiscus is used for its health benefits like supporting liver health, fighting bacteria and even weight loss. Witches used Hibiscus for its magical properties: aphrodisiac, passion, relaxation, divination, and dream magic.
