RESURRECTION BUSH (MYROTHANAMNUS FLABELLIFOLIUS)



 

It is named resurrection bush because for most of the year it is a reddish-brown with dead leaves but when it rains it revives quickly and it becomes green. It can be used for steaming, bathing (soak in water first to revive the bush), consumed as a herbal tea, added to porridge (in powder form) and used for smudging.
