Ingredient Name:  Mu Mian Hua, Gossampinus malabarica flower, Kapok

Traditional Chinese Name: 木棉花  (mu mian hua)

What is this?

How do I prepare it?

Where can I buy this?

  • This can be found in most Asian herb shops and some asian supermarkets.

What is the cost?

  • 2-3 flowers (which can be used in one large pot of soup with 2-3L of water) costs under $2 CAD.

Any benefits?

  • A diuretic (good for kidneys)
  • Promotes blood circulation, reduces swelling
  • May also help with chronic gastritis, gastric ulcer, diarrhea, dysentery, sores, and bruises
  • Used by some to treat hypertension, diabetes, migraine, kidney stones, asthma, slimming, back ache, libido

Any precautions?

    Thanks for the informative website!

    BTW, my mother suffers from Gastritis so
    Gossampinus Malabarica Flower (Mu Mian Hua)
    sounds like a good ingredient for her condition.
    But, I was not able to find a recipe that
    uses it. Any help would be much appreciated.

  • LadyTong says:

    Dear YLK, you’re right. I don’t think we’ve used this in any soup creations – yet. Stay tuned and I’ll dig something up. Lisa
