Summarized Description: Florde Arena -- ("sand flower" in Spanish, the name due to its somewhat grey, ashen characteristics when dried and cut) -- is a native of both the Peruvian coastal areas and Andes, where we have it wildcrafted. It is a member of the borage family (Boraginaceae) and grows in drier areas. It is, of course, a traditional. Additional common names include Hierba Blance ("white herb") and Te Indio ("Indian tea"). Among the Peruvian herbalists we work with, this herb is one of the most commonly used. Despite its lifeless appearance, Flor de Arena is full of tannins, alkaloids, flavinoids and other phytochemicals that contribute to its unique medical properties.
