We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Centaurea cyanus

Traditionally, cornflowers (flower heads) were made into an infusion and used to bathe inflamed eyes. Cornflower contains tannins, which have an astringent effect on inflammation.

In skin care, cornflower infusions are used in toners for the calming qualities of this plant. The infusion can also be used as a hair rinse, and it is claimed that it adds depth to fair or grey hair.
