A flowering beautiful Helitropium bacciferum

Desert Gift -Heliotropium bacciferum 

The shrub is a key flora of the desert, an option hope for the desert revitalization and enriching drylands with the dark green flora. It guarantees food for the livestock, animals and wildlife in the desert ecosystems. It can be a very good and round the year flowering flora for the lawns in the urban areas. The herbal value can be a pharmacy in the future. The traditional practitioners recommend it feeding the camels before work or race. Please help me in identifying (further details, especially native traditional knowledge) and supporting my research work as it is for the wellbeing of desert, livestock, and humanity. Though I have found some information from native ethnoecologists and google but I still need help to sort it out.

Please help – Taxonomic identification of the desert’s shrub

Sometimes, I really get tired and stressed when unable to solve my academic question, the question from my academy – the desert. I have been coming through such a situation from time to time. I found this flora many times and knew that it is a great source of salts for the camel and the camels really love it. In Arabic it is called RIMRAM, the traditional practitioners recommend it feeding the camels before work or race. Here are the pictures in the gallery, please help me in identifying and supporting my research work as it is for the wellbeing of desert, livestock, and humanity. Though I have found some information from google I still need help to sort it out.
