This past spring, I found myself attracted to anything having to do with hibiscus. You could even say that maybe I had a small obsession with it. Of course, I bought myself a hibiscus plant for the house. And as soon as a product contained hibiscus, I was drawn to it: tea, face wash, perfumes…
I’m used to such reactions at this point so of course I questioned this obsession. What did hibiscus have to give me?
This summer I got my response during a session for someone close to me. In fact, he was the one who needed the benefits of hibiscus to help with a situation he had gone through. Given our close relationship and my hypersensitivity, I was picking up on it and hunting it down.
This experience allowed me to learn a bit more about this flower essence which I pass on to you.
