Our certified organic cornflower hydrosol is steam distilled from the blue flowers of the annual cornflower plant, also known as bachelor’s buttons. The plants used for this hydrosol are intentionally cultivated for hydrosol distillation right here in the USA. The beautiful flowers of the Centaurea cyanus create a delicate, light, and sweet hydrosol that is perfect for using as a spritz, wash, or cold compress for swollen, tired, and itchy eyes brought on by seasonal or environmental allergies.
Benefits and uses
Cornflower hydrosol has truly wonderful soothing and cooling properties. In addition to relieving itchy, angry eyes, this hydrosol can be used to cool and disperse hot flashes. It also makes an excellent compress to help with bruising. Try combining this cornflower hydrosol with our lavender hydrosol to help cleanse and soothe cuts, scrapes, and wounds.
Cornflower hydrosol is also useful for reducing oily hair. Massage it into the scalp as an all-natural treatment for scalp and hair health. If you spray it into your hair and go out into the sun, though, you could give yourself highlights!
Our cornflower hydrosol is a must-have to keep on hand if you suffer from allergies that aggravate your eyes. We love using our cornflower hydrosol in place of chemical-filled eye drops. Try applying a quick spritz to each eye for immediate, welcome relief!
