In traditional medicine, rosella (also known as hibiscus) is used to increase stamina and endurance, help the body flush out toxins, and lower blood pressure, cholesterol and uric acid levels. It also helps with migraines, coughs and sore throats. Because Leuser Nature School is based on the same site as Bukit Mas Permaculture Centre, the grade 8 students are learning from the women's group working there - harvesting rosella flowers, cleaning them and then drying them to be used as rosella tea. This is one of many nature-based activities the students benefit from at Leuser Nature School, made possible by everyone who donates to keep the school running smoothly. Thank you.
