Aside from their beauty, they are herbal medicine. In my search for the names of flowers I found out that gumamela does some wonders in the field of medicine.

Application of Gumamela:
Decoction is used to treat : Bronchitis, coughs, fever, dysentery, urinary and bladder infections, high blood pressure and constipation.

Poultice is applied externally on the afflicted area. This is used to treat headaches ( on the forehead), boils, swelling, abscesses and mumps.

Intake of gumamela alone or mixed with papaya or papaya seeds specially in large quantities can be abortifacient.
