Our Cornflower hydrosol is artisan distilled in Canada from small batches of dried Centaurea cyanus flowers also known as Bachelor's Button.

Cornflowers are delicate and bloom from early spring to end of summer.  They are dried and used for culinary garnishing and are a necessary addition in Lady Grey tea. Because the flowers are dried they can be distilled any time of the year. 

Use Cornflower hydrosol for anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, plumping skin cells, toning and tightening skin and refining pores.   This hydrosol is astringent, styptic and cicatrizant, wonderful for healing scars and wounds.  Price and Price regard Cornflower hydrosol as antiseptic, antiviral and sedative for inducing deep relaxation.    
 
Cornflower hydrosol is an excellent compress for reducing the appearance of puffy eyes!  Suzanne Catty indicates in her writings that Cornflower Hydrosol is useful as a compress for fatigued, tired, and itchy eyes.  She also reports that phytohormones in Cornflower Hydrosol may be helpful to women experiencing hot flashes but is a hydrosol to be avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy.
