Gumamela plant -- it's medicinal use

Posted by Malou at 1/20/2009 11:34:00 AM

Hibiscus, china rose, or shoe flower most commonly known in the Philippines as Gumamela. That is what we have in our house that Daddy brought home one day. It only looked like a little tree but it surely surprised us one morning when the flowers came out. Our gumamela plant's flower has three different colors from pink, yellow, and red.

It fed on plant food but the sunshine that comes in the morning helped to make it healthy as ever. Gumamela, aside from being cultivated as an ornamental plant, it also has medicinal uses. You can click here to learn of its medicinal uses.

I remember my childhood days when we were playing. We crushed the leaf and flower of Gumamela plant and mixed it in with water. The result comes out like an oil. We used it as a substitute for cooking as we play pretend.
