Scientifically called “Hibiscus L.” the hibiscus is a plant belonging to the Malvaceae family, with about 300 species. However, only a few of these species are edible, as is the case of the popular Hibiscus sabdariffa used in the preparation of hibiscus tea. Most species are used as ornamental plants in gardens. The origin of hibiscus is unknown, but it is believed that it started its first production in Asia and East Africa. And later, it will have spread across Europe.
Rich in mineral salts and vitamins from the A, B and C complex, the hibiscus has a high amount of essential nutrients for the normal function of the body. Usually, it is used natural or dehydrated in the preparation of many culinary dishes, from sauces to salads. Due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties, hibiscus contributes to good digestion and reduction of abdominal bloating through its purifying action. In addition, it helps in strengthening defences and muscle relaxation. It also contains benefits for cognitive, renal and intestinal functions.
In Greco-Roman and Egyptian mythologies, hibiscus represents the female universe directly related to the goddesses Aphrodite, Venus, and Isis. There are many myths, legends, and traditions surrounding this flower, including in Tahiti, where young women identify their love status through the position of the hibiscus in the ears. According to this tradition, women who have placed hibiscus in the corner of their right ear are available to find a mate. Otherwise, they will have already found you. The hibiscus flower is still used to offer to tourists as a welcome gesture to the country.
