OVERVIEW:

Cornflowers are part of the daisy family. They are lacking in flavor, but the petals add texture and aesthetic value to tea blends, potpourri, baked goods, soups, salads, and custards. Cornflower is a key ingredient in Lady Grey tea and is used as an infusion, a poultice, and to create a natural blue dye. The properties of cornflower include antibiotic and antiseptic qualities.
