Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

The Lovely Hibiscus!!

This awesome lovely flower has so many amazing benefits and it's soooo pretty...on the bush & in a tea!!

It's Latin name is Hibiscus sabdariffa and there are many different species. It has a tart flavor and is similar to cranberries.

Hibiscus neutralizes free radicals (cancer-causing cells), helps to lower blood pressure, can fight bacterial infections and can help with weight loss. It's loaded with anti-oxidants, Vitamin C, minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, niacin, Mg, folic acid & potassium. It can help lower cholesterol & triglycerides. It is a well known fact that hibiscus can help lower blood pressure on both the systolic & diastolic. It can improve liver health. It also has diuretic properties which can also lower blood pressure. It is high in polyphenols which possess powerful anti-cancer properties. 

This flower can also help to calm down the nervous system, reduces anxiety & depression. Helps to fight inflammation as well. 

If you already have low blood pressure, do NOT take this. NOT recommended for pregnant women or those on birth control.
