The money tree is believed to be a kind of indicator of people’s health. In fact, it is said that if it begins to wither , it is because it has absorbed the negative energy of a sick person who lives in the house.

But, as soon as the person recovers, the plant begins to green up and look healthy. In a word, on an energetic level, this amazing plant is closely related to humans.

Properties of the Money Tree

In folk medicine, a porridge made from the juice of its leaves is widely used. This is due to the high content of flavonoids, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and bactericidal properties of crassula.

In terms of medicinal properties, only one other famous green competitor compares to it, Aloe vera.

And although crassula has established itself in natural medicine, it should be used externally and with some caution.

The reason is its ability to accumulate arsenic. However, this ability is less in houseplants, which grow in arsenic-poor soils, compared to their wild relatives in South Africa.
