Avaram Poo also called Avarampoo in Tamil is a very popular shrub here in Tamil Nadu. Avarampoo has wide health benefits, medicinal uses, and skin and hair care benefits. Avarampoo is traditionally used for treating diabetes and Avarampoo face pack made with the dried avaram flowers treats almost all skin problems.
Avaram poo tea is full of antioxidants and tastes really good. It is also one of the best substitutes for caffeinated drinks. The main problem with caffeinated drinks is that they are very dehydrating, this Avarampoo tea is just the opposite, it hydrates the body very nicely. In the olden days, when people walked for a long distance under the hot sun, they used to carry a bundle of Avarampoo (Tanner’s – Cassia in English) on their heads to keep their body cool and prevent the body from getting dehydrated. If even keeping the flowers on the head prevents dehydration, just imagine how hydrated the body will be when you take it internally.
