🛑 Be careful with allergy sufferers, contact allergies can occur.

Since wood and bark primarily contain the light toxins (and are also the more medicinally effective part), small amounts of the flowers are harmless.

In the kitchen you can eat the petals of the Houpu magnolia (which taste slightly sweet), baked in dough without the flower base, as a sugared dessert.

The tea made from the bitter bark of Magnolia grandiflora is used in North America against intermittent fever (malaria). The flowers are used in tea infusion to promote menstruation, for cramps, as a digestive aid and as an antibacterial support for colds.

As a fragrance, the essential oil is popular as a peace oil and meditation aid. It opens all chakras, but especially the crown chakra.
