Hibiscus Hi vatsi, I have been using hibiscus every night for an year now for my face. The results are truly good. Boil 1 hibiscus, fresh or dry, in water for 5 minutes, covered. Remove it from water. Mash it well and mix it with a spoon of sandal paste. when i went to india i got a small sandal wood piece to extract the paste. U can use pure sandal powder also. If you do not have access to sandalwood, u can use just the hibiscus. It removes the scars from ur skin and makes ur skin very smooth and soft. This is my personal experience. Apply it everynight just before going to bed and wash off in the morning.
