organically grown cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus)
these edible blooms are organically grown in our garden. we grow our cornflowers from organic seed, open-pollinated and harvested by me and my daughter.
cornflower is an astringent and beneficial for the throat, which when blended with sage and/or marshmallow root (as in our seasonal 'tender throat tea') makes a nice tea and gargle.
these tiny blue flowers can also be used as a natural blue/purple fabric dye.
price is by the ounce and comes packaged in resealable kraft pouches.
