INTRODUCTION Cornflower is a common wildflower that has been cultivated as a garden flower for centuries. Originally a native of the Near East, cornflower 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
TYPICAL PREPARATIONS Infusion, Cornflower petals are also very popular as ingredient in soaps, bath bombs, candles, potpourri, confetti and dyes.

Interesting herbal tea.

I came across this herb under its Latin name on a supplement from Spain and am pleased to be able to find a supplier of the actual herb in UK.

Very Informative and Interesting Product

Everything arrived on time and in an informative manner and presentation.

Lovely tea

Nice change if you like any type of green tea. Good fresh, rounded, bright flavour with a slight aniseed/ fennel taste in my opinion which adds another dimension.
