Cornflower Seeds, 100s (Root’d)

R29.00

Centaurea Cyanus commonly known as cornflower or bachelor’s Button is an annual flowering plant. In the past, it often grew as a weed in cornfields (“corn” referring to grains, such as wheat, barley, rye or oats), hence its name.
Extracts from the from the flower heads have anti-inflammatory properties used in the treatment of minor ocular inflammations. Antioxidant properties are high due to ascorbic acid and phenolic compounds. Furthermore, extracts of the flower head and vegetative parts of the plant were shown to have gastroprotective effects due to their content of quercetin, apigenin and caffeic acid derivates.
Petals can also be added to salads, drinks or desserts for garnishing purposes in raw or dried form.
