About the Product

Thathiripoovu is the light red blossom of a medicinal plant known technically as Fire-flame Bush (Woodfordia Fruticosa). It is a lovely shrub with fluted stems and long spreading branches that is found throughout Northern India. Additionally, this shrub is grown as a blooming plant. Once flowering, the bush takes on a twiggy, formless appearance yet is completely swathed in red. This is because the tiny blooms bloom alone or in clusters all over the branches and side twigs. Almost all of the leaves would fall at this time. Each bloom, which is carried on a short stalk, is a slender, slightly curved tube with a greenish base. Slightly swelling, the tube separates into narrow, pointed lobes from which a cluster of long stamens emerges.


  • Woodfordia is a widely regarded source of Ayurvedic medicine in India.
  • The flowers are astringent, styptic, depurative, uterine sedative, constipating, antibacterial, diuretic, febrifuge, and alexiteric.
  • They are reported to be beneficial in the treatment of kapha and pitta disorders, leprosy, burning feeling, skin illnesses, diarrhoea, dysentery, fever, headache, haemorrhoids, herpes, internal haemorrhage, leucorrhoea, liver disorders, menorrhagia, ulcers, and wounds.
  • The leaves’ juice is used to treat bilious illness.
