Usher in new beginnings with Red Hibiscus

By The Yoga School / December 1, 2020

This luscious flower offers hope and relief to start anew.

The Hibiscus flower is in the Mallow family, and this variety, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, is also known as the “Chinese rose” or “Chinese Hibiscus.” This variety of Hibiscus comes in many colours, usually warm colours like yellow, orange, red, and pink. It is beloved in gardening and landscaping for its bright colours and swirling shapes.

In Ayurvedic medicine, the Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is used to treat hair loss and graying of the hair. Hibiscus flowers are boiled and combined with other herbs and spices in oil as a hair and scalp treatment. Studies show that the extract absorbs ultraviolet light, making it an important sun-protective ingredient in skin care.

What Red Hibiscus reveals about you

If you’re drawn to the Red Hibiscus, you may have recently experienced a series of stressful events. You might feel exhausted by emotional stress, having had “one thing after another” occur.

Perhaps by now you feel totally overwhelmed and overstimulated, and not sure what to do. You may be craving a light at the end of the tunnel, a sigh of relief, and a fresh perspective for the future.

What Red Hibiscus catalyses

The Hibiscus flower helps us regain hope and experience relief after a string of stressful events. It brings in light at the end of the tunnel, and supports us in recognising how these situations contribute to our personal growth.

When we have several life-changing events in a row, these events can recreate or mould us into a different person. The positive side to this is it can give us the sense of having a new beginning.

Hibiscus flowers help us turn over a new leaf into a new chapter of our lives, while retaining the wisdom we have gained from challenging situations. It allows us to start anew with a fresh perspective.

In essence

Red Hibiscus magnifies: Hope and relief. Light at the end of the tunnel. Sense of a new start.

Red Hibiscus dissolves: High stress. Overwhelm. The stress of long-term challenges.
