INTRODUCTION Cornflower flower is a common wildflower that has been cultivated as a garden flower for centuries. Originally a native of the Near East, cornflower flower now grows wild over much of Europe and the temperate regions of North America. The cornflower gets its formal name from a minor goddess, Cyanus, and its genus name from a mythical Centaur (from the Greek Centaurea), whose name was Chiron. Chiron was a renowned herbalist in Greek mythology, and is credited with teaching mankind about the healing power of herbs. In many areas of the Europe, cornflowers are considered invasive weeds, despite the fact that they are also sought after garden flowers. They are annuals and biennials that often self sow and reseed themselves, making them difficult to eradicate. They got the name Bachelor's buttons in Victorian England because young women would wear them as a sign of availability.
CONSTITUENTS Anthocyans, coumarins, flavonoids
PARTS USED Petals, flowers
TYPICAL PREPARATIONS Infusion, Cornflower petals are also very popular as ingredient in soaps, bath bombs, candles, potpourri, confetti and dyes.

Add to tea

A pinch of these flowers are added to English Breakfast tea to give an additional subtle flavor. A little over priced for the amount recieved

Really enjoyable bedtime tea, and excellent service.

Great - bought primarily to add to homemade cat toys in place of catnip, the cats are definitely keen on it so far. 25g turned out to be more than I was expecting - shown here in a 190ml / 8oz jar, with tealight for scale. There was quite a lot of powder in the packet where I'm guessing it got battered during shipping, but that's fine for my purposes. Hopefully going to try it in tea soon as well, it seems like excellent quality.
