|Extended Information||Centaurea cyanus
Once a common sight growing wild in our fields, the cornflower is loved for its bright blue flowers. Today it is usually cultivated purposefully in gardens, rather than being found wild. Although largely ignored by modern herbalism, it has a long history of use to soothe the skin, and in particular the skin around the eyes, due to its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. In beauty preparations for the hair, it is also said to help darken fair or grey hair. These bright blue flower buds are extremely decorative and can be used in a variety of ways including in hand made crafts, but from our point-of-view we like to press them onto the surface of soaps for decoration, and for inclusion in fragrant pot pourri.
