Hibiscus is connected with the ancient myth, telling the famous love story between Adonis and Aphrodite. The myth of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, and Adonis, a handsome mortal man, is one of the most popular Greek myths about lust. The beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers of hibiscus have beneficial health properties, specifically for those looking to support cardiovascular health. Dried hibiscus flowers can be used as aphrodisiacs; hibiscus tea, which has a deep red colour and a naturally sweet taste, stimulates the glands involved in sexual activity.
