How Does Your Love Bush Grow? (Video)

On my way to Club Mobay before my return flight back to LA, I asked my taxi driver, Lawrence, to make a few stops.

We headed along top road to the huge Red Stripe sign that overlooks the Hip Strip in Montego Bay. I took in the views and snapped some photos while Lawrence began collecting this yellow plant from off the bushes. When I inquired, he said it was the love bush and was taking some to a friend who was sick. He could make a tea out of  the herb to help his friend feel better.

I love learning about different herbal remedies and will always opt for an herb or natural remedy before reaching for a prescription. But why is it called the love bush?

Here’s a quick look at Lawrence’s explanation of how the love bush got its name.

By no means do I consider myself a super star film maker. I really do enjoy making videos while traveling, but the only problem is that it takes me forever and a day to do the editing, add music, etc. Le sigh, I’m working on it…
