It all started from an abandoned pot of foliage, when most of the tenants started to vacate the premise during the national lockdown, this poor little pot of foliage was left unwatered in the corridor for weeks. We adopted it, watered it and it flourished the next 2 days rigorously.
It goes by many names, but we like to simply call it Mexican Mint. After a full 12 months of cultivation with lots of trials and errors, here’s the finalized creation that is perfect and suitable for all skin types.
Amazed by the history and the benefits to human skin, Mexican Mint is an excellent remedy for a wide range of skin problems, allergies and ulcerations. Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties treat eczema and itching, cuts and wounds in swift healing. It enhances skin regeneration and stimulates skin cell activity. The presence of gamma-linoleic acid may aid in treating skin disorders such as allergies, dermatitis, inflammation, and irritation.
Japanese Rose / Portulaca
Known for it's incredible hardiness and legendary disease resistance, Japanese Rose is rich in many virtues and can be relied on to provide interest and color. This is a rigorous, tough, prickly, sprawling, suckering shrub that is amazingly tolerant of dry sandy soils, salt spray and wind. Flowering is so profuse that the attractive blossoms nearly cover the handsome, heavily veined, rich green foliage.
It symbolizes endurance and perseverance, just like our journey at Balance Tree, when we witnessed gradual business pullouts and still refused to follow suit, with the presence of Mexican Mint, we were reminded to stay put and have faith to pull through.
