Blue Cornflower

Supports the liver. Eases digestion. Reduces inflammation.

Blue cornflower, or centaurea cyanus, was named after Chiron, a famous centaur in Greek mythology. Chiron was a healer and teacher to the heroes of ancient Greece. He taught the medicinal uses of herbs and it is said that Chiron used cornflower to heal a poison arrow wound. Cornflower grows spontaneously wherever it can and is typically a vibrant blue color, but can be other colors such as pink, purple, or white.
