Misai Kucing / Orthosiphon aristatus

I have heard about the beneficial usage of this herb, but so far I have not try it yet. I like the look of the flower, so I treat it as an ornamental plant in my garden.

We can absorb the goodness of this herb by steeping the leaves in hot water (to release the nutrients) and then after the mixture has cooled down, throw away the leaves and drink the brew. It can treat kidney problems, stones, diabetes, high-blood pressure and a few other diseases.
