Cornflower Hydrosol has a delicate, light aroma  that is somewhat sweet. Its' taste is also delicate and light, very pleaasant. (Also known as Batchelor Buttons)

Used as an eyewash and to soothe tired eyes. Try a cool compress for swollen or itchy eyes as the hydrosol has an anti-inflammatory effect. This hydrosol is an excellent choice for dry, mature skin, and its relieving for "hot flashes."  Susan Catty states this is one of only four hydrosols recommended as an eyewash.  The other three are Roman and German Chamomile and Green Myrtle.  Other possible uses include:

  • Combine with Lavender to cleanse cuts and wounds
  • Use in a compress for bruising
  • Massage into the scalp for shiny hair and highlights. 
  • Cooling

SafetyAvoid during the first trimester of pregnancy because of potential phytohormones.
