What a gorgeous flower! These lovely, phoenix-reminiscent petals have been used medicinally for some time! They are often used as a laxative and to induce sweating. In this way, they can be a supportive plant to detoxify through sweat or to reduce fevers. It is also commonly used in children’s and infants’ complaints, including measles, fevers, and eruptive skin complaints. Women occasionally use it for late or absent menstruation. It is also used as an expectorant to dislodge phlegm. Enjoy these gorgeous flowers in tea!
