Hibiscus sabdariffa: thrives in tropical climates and is commonly brewed into a popular tart beverage. The most common infusion is hibiscus tea which is usually sweetened with sugar. Our hibiscus powder is ground from dried organic flowers and can be added to food, cosmetic blends, or made into herbal teas. Also may be used as a natural fabric dye. Possible Allergen: PEANUTS. Hibiscus flowers are often intercropped with peanuts. Occasionally fragments of peanut shells are present. Caution for individuals with severe peanut allergies. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
