These are a Marigold-like substance and are often used in baths to treat children with mal aire. This malady happens when a family member passes away, leaving the child unhappy and restless. The spirit or the ghost of the deceased grandfather – or whatever it was – stays with the child and makes him sick. The spirit is sad that the person has died and it remains in the house, trying to comfort family members and provide support. This causes them to feel sick. Rosa Sisa has the ability to control vomiting, and can be used for good luck in floral baths.

A simple prayer using the name of the child is enough to invoke the spirit back.
It can be used in the treatment of fevers and emplasts.
