Naturally, I developed a deep connection with the symbolization of the flower and its bright colors and beautiful hues. I want to share with you some of hibiscus’ powerful benefits, and how you can create your own hibiscus tea!

Native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world, hibiscus is packed with antioxidants that may help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses. The superpower plant has been found to help with lowering blood pressure, blood sugar, and even stimulate fat breakdown! Its antibacterial properties aid with balancing your body’s environment, keeping it in check from the inside out. Ladies! Hibiscus also helps relieve menstrual cramps.
