INTRODUCTION  
Cornflower purple 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.

Earthy purpley-brown petals

Poured hot water on petals (experimenting with potential dyes), and had the most wonderful surprise; a gentle frankincense type scent was released. Have now placed petals and hot water in an aroma-stone to benefit from this further.

JASMINE BUDS

I have a problem here. The Jasmine Buds look so pretty, so do the Rose buds (which I purchased earlier) I and finding it difficult to put them in hot water. I simply enjoy their aroma and appearance. I guess if I purchase a larger quantity of both I will be able to drink their extracts. Thank you.
