We are the first to ever distill Crepe myrtle which is a plant that is commonly used as an ornamental plant, usually placed in garden and side road spaces for shade, etc. However, this plant whose Latin name is Lagerstroemia speciose or can also be called crape myrtle can grow well in tropical countries such as Indonesia and had many medicinal uses.
Crape/ Crepe myrtle itself can actually grow well both on fertile or arid soil. Sometimes, crepe myrtle can be easily found in teak forests. Although it is considered to be a wild plant, crepe myrtle has a lot of benefits for health. Part of this plant, which is the leaves, can be used as a medicine to cure different kinds of diseases and also to protect the health of the body.
In Europe, crape myrtle is common in the south of France, the Iberian Peninsula, and most of Italy; in the United States, it is an iconic plant of gardens across the Southern United States. It has been cultivated in many parts of Australia, but is most common in the areas of the country with a Mediterranean climate such as the south-east Israel and western parts of the Jordon and much of the Middle East.
