I am the Gardenia. The content of the substances of my leaves is hot. From the sap until the bark is medium. My flowers are fragrant and can be used as medicine for mute children and loss of appetite in children. Spray the child’s face with a mixture of soil from the bedroom, sandalwood bark and hair from a black cow then burn all of the ingredients and take the charcoal to make a symbol of a red cross in the middle of the forehead and then spray it again.
