Description

Tea made from the hibiscus flower doesn’t just taste and smell wonderful; it also has a long list of health benefits. Antioxidant-rich hibiscus has long been used as a traditional medicine to help support heart health, respiratory health, digestion and circulation. Today, it’s known as a natural way to lower high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which makes hibiscus tea a wonderfully healthy brew. What’s more, you can use Nautica’s hibiscus petals to add shine to your hair and tone your complexion.

Hibiscus flowers contain a slippery plant extract called mucilage, which soothes rashes, dry skin and itchy scalps, and works to detangle the hair. It’s also a natural astringent and moisturiser, so it’s great for softening and toning the skin.

Directions

  • Steep a few hibiscus petals in a cup of hot water to make a fragrant hibiscus tea.
  • Infuse the petals to make a hair and skin rinse.
  • Add a hibiscus petal infusion to your shampoo for shiny hair.
  • Make your own nourishing face mask with hibiscus petals and honey.
