Flame Of the Forest

Come March and Spring begins. So starts the flowering time for the Flame of the Forest! As it appears like a flame in the forest by its colour! It is originally an Indian Tree. Also known as Parrot tree because the petals look like a beak of a parrot. In sanskrit is called as Palaash. Or in Gujarati, we call it Kesudo! This is the special flower for orange colour for the festival of Colour Holi. Flowers have three petals and it is believed that Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh reside in this tree. Brahmans believe it is a sacred tree, call it as 'Brahma Vriksh' ,and do use this tree in Ceremony and prayers.
As a flower Essence: It is an enhancer for public speakers, who need to improve the timing of their elocution along with better co-ordination between thought and speech.
