INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

We decided to make a perfume with gumamela extracts

because we want to test the effectiveness of our research

that gumamela is able to substitute a perfume. According to

our research, gumamela flowers are fragrant and feminine,

lending to a pleasant floral perfume. A type of hibiscus,

thegumamelaflower grows widely in the Philippines as an

industrious plant. It's not only grown for use as a dye,

poultice and diuretic, but it also serves as a useful and

fragrant ingredient in soaps, lotions and perfumes. Knowing

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.We also discovered that using perfume

brings emotional and physical healing properties such as

calming, energy-enhancing, relaxing or mood-lifting. It

boosts confidence, triggers memories and treats insomnia.

In the Western cultures, perfume is applied at pulse points

like behind the ears, the nape of the neck, and the insides

of wrists, elbows and knees so a pulse would warm the

perfume and release it into the air. Others say that

perfume also should be applied on clothing and hair.

Opinions differ because perfume can leave stains on

clothes. Perfume applied to body can last approximately to

six hours, but many fragrances can last up to twelve hours,

and even more than that.Perfume comes from Latin “per

fumus” which means “through smoke”. The first scents were

smokes of the burned odorous materials.

The flower is edible and has a tangy citrusy taste. Certain

species of hibiscus are also beginning to be used more

widely as a natural source of food coloring (E163), and

replacement of Red #3 / E127.

Approximately 15-30 percent of the hibiscus plant is made

up of plant acids, including citric acid, malic acid,

tartaric acid and allo-hydroxycitric acid lactone — i.e.

hibiscus acid, which is unique to hibiscus. Other chemical

constituents are many; however, some of the most important

include alkaloids, anthocyanins, and quercetin.

Many countries from around the world use hibiscus to make

teas and other tasty beverages. Hibiscus tea contains

vitamin C and other minerals. Hibiscus tea also contains

bioflavonoids, which are believed to help prevent an

increase in LDL cholesterol, which can increase the buildup
