SKIN: This plant is excellent for the skin, its high content of Vitamin C gives it antioxidant, cicatrizing and astringent properties, also useful for acneic skin and with enlarged pores. It gives relief in case of itching, swelling and burning of the skin. Its emollient and humectant properties help to improve the elasticity of superficial skin cells, and make it particularly suitable for fighting wrinkles.

HISTORY and CURIOSITY: The Hibiscus is native to Asia Minor: it was the Flemish Ambassador Ghislain de Busbeck, after a stay at the court of Suleiman the Magnificent in Istanbul, to send some specimens to Holland, which then spread to the continent Europer and have come up to our times. From the flowers of Hibiscus sabdariffa you get the Karkadè (or Carcadè), used for the production of teas and jams.
HOW TO USE: Mix the powder with boiling water until you get the consistency of a yogurt. Add any other herbs for a synergistic effect. Cover the container and allow to macerate for 15 minutes. Apply the paste to dry or slightly damp hair. Massage with light circular movements. Apply what remains even on the lengths. Leave on for 20/50 minutes, 2 hours as a reflective pack. Rinse thoroughly and make, if necessary, a light and diluted Shampoo, like our shampoo with Sardinian wild Helicrysum.
As a face mask, keep posing for 10 minutes. Do not dry the mask, but keep it moist by delivering water or floral water.
