BACKGROUND STUDY

A type of hibiscus, the gumamela flower grows widely in the Philippines as an industrious plant. It's not only grown for uses as a dye, poultice and diuretic, but it also serves as a useful and fragrant ingredient in soaps, lotions and perfumes. Knowing how to make perfume from gumamela isn't a difficult endeavor that requires the use of very few materials. A homemade gumamela perfume gives you a feminine and floral fragrance to wear for any occasion. Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is considered to have a number of medical uses in Chinese herbology. In the Philippines, the gumamela (local name for hibiscus) is used by children as part of a bubble-making pastime. The flowers and leaves are crushed until the sticky juices come out. Hollow papaya stalks are then dipped into this and used as straws for blowing bubbles. Since most of the people cannot afford buying expensive perfumes, the researcher decides to make a substitute perfume like the gumamela perfume. It is also very affordable and easy to do. Somehow, gumamela flowers are also environment friendly because there are no harmful chemicals added that can harm the environment.
