Premium Harvest Herbs: Locally Grown Blue Cornflowers

We take pride in the quality of our bulk herbs, selecting the best certified organic or wildcrafted leaves, flowers, roots, fruits, and resins we can obtain, and prioritizing locally grown items when possible. Lately, as we come across particularly stellar batches, we feature them as premium harvest herbs.

Organic Blue Cornflowers are scarce! When a buyer contacted us last year, seeking a source for them, we were able to locate a grower in nearby Skagit County who agreed to produce a crop for us. We dried them in our shop, and found the resulting product superior in every way to the Cornflowers we had previously obtained from Eastern Europe.

Blue Cornflowers are prized for their beautiful color, lending special appeal to teas and potpourris. They’re known for antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and have a special history of use for treating eye conditions: an eyewash prepared from a decoction of Cornflowers is called Eau de Casselunettes—that's French for "Water of Break-the-Eyeglasses"! They’ve also been given to improve digestion, enhance overall resistance to infection, support the liver and gall bladder, treat menstrual disorders and vaginal yeast infections, and as a diuretic in urinary tract diseases.

This is one very special trove of Cornflowers. Quantities are limited—don't miss out!
