Product Details

Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus) boasts a rich history that transcends its cheerful presence in gardens. Once a common sight in European wheat fields, its abundance earned it the name "cornflower." Ironically, widespread herbicide use now threatens the wildflower in its native habitat. Historically, cornflower petals were used as a natural dye, their vibrant blue coloring textiles a vivid indigo.

Medicinally, cornflower has a long history of use in herbal remedies. Traditional European healers used cornflower infusions for a variety of ailments, including eye infections, fevers, and digestive issues. While modern science hasn't fully validated these practices, some studies suggest cornflower extracts may possess anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Cornflower's bright blooms haven't escaped the realm of magic either. In some European folk traditions, cornflower was associated with protection against evil and misfortune. The bright blue flowers were sometimes woven into amulets or placed beneath pillows to ward off nightmares and ensure peaceful sleep.
