This flower holds a lot of medicinal properties.
Helps in digestion, reduces fever and swelling in abdomen.
A bright red bell shaped flower.The wood is used in making artefacts. The smoke released by burning of Buransh’s is said to be purifying the Himalaya’s.These flowers are handpicked and dried to retain their properties.
Buransh is considered sacred by the locals here.
