Monkey had a mean sunburn, so I rubbed her skin with aloe. A couple of days treatment and all good.

Lilikoi flowers steeped into a tea are soothing and relaxing and can promote good sleep. One flower per hundred pounds of person.

And our birds love it, so they get clippings once or twice a week to chew on. IMG_0942 by Hanzo posted Aug 6, 2017 at 17:45 This common plant. I cannot remember the Hawaiian name. Was used by the ancient Hawaiian as a cancer treatment. If you taste the flower and leaves, they are bitter. Seems like many of the anti-cancer type foods taste bitter.
