In European countries, this plant is known as Japanese Honeysuckle, but in Japan it is called "Golden-silver flower". Such a respectful attitude is associated with an ancient legend, which tells of two little girls who were very sick, but were cured thanks to the "Golden-silver flower", provided to them by the heavens.
A very popular way to use a decoction made from the flowers of honeysuckle in Asian countries is as a "beauty tonic". Asian women drink a brewed infusion of 'golden-silver flowers', and also used it as a cream for their faces, as honeysuckle flowers are said to slow the aging process. For a long time cosmetic companies have used extracts of honeysuckle blossoms as the basis of many anti-wrinkle creams.
