We have a love affair with flowers. We love the colors, the scents, the straight-up vibes flowers can bring to any room or space.
Overgrown wildflowers? Love.
A vase of lilies? Yes, please.
If you’ve got them, we’ll take them.
Did you know that among these beauties, and found commonly around tropical regions around the world, is a flower known as the anti-aging flower: hibiscus.
That's right. That gorgeous, bright red, trumpet-pedaled hibiscus flower is well revered for its myriad skin benefits.
