Hibiscus is a beautiful and quite big flower. It grows in sub-tropical and tropical climates and has several variations. The flower is the national flower of states such as the Solomon Islands, Malaysia and Haiti. Hibiscus is also the Hindu flower related to the goddess Kali, so if you’re a witch that works with Hindu gods, try offering a red hibiscus for more successful spell-work.
Dried hibiscus is edible and is sometimes used as a delicacy in Mexico. However, in many cultures, dried hibiscus is used to make a tea. Of course, make sure that you are not allergic to the flower before consuming it or its tea. You could make the drinking of hibiscus tea part of your craft. In magick, the flower represents the attraction of lust, love and prophetic dreams. The spell provided to you is meant to help you with sleeping peacefully, as well as having more pleasant and/or prophetic dreams.
Dried hibiscus is also known as a medicinal flower. The tea is said to help with kidney issues, and contains plenty of vitamin C and antioxidants. Beware, the tea is not as sweet as you might guess from it’s bright red color. Be careful when drinking the tea, as the red color of the hibiscus is very difficult to get out of things such as clothes and kitchen counters.
*As a precaution, please do not ingest hibiscus if you’re pregnant. Also, check with your physician/doctor whether you can add this to your diet, especially if you’re on medication, have allergies or have other illness or sickness. If you have a health concern or condition, always consult your medical doctor before changing diet.
