Blue Cornflower Petals - scientifically called "Centaurea cyanus", the cornflower is an annual herbaceous plant of the Asteraceae and Compositae family that develops a blue to violet flower 2 to 3 centimetres in diameter. Its flowering period occurs between May to September. Cornflower is one of the few plants that can generate around 7,000 seeds per year. Part of its production takes place on vacant or poorly worked land in regions of the European and Asian continents. Able to reach more than one meter in height, this plant prefers breeding in corn, wheat and barley production fields.
The Blue Cornflower flower is known for its beneficial contribution to treating gastrointestinal disorders, even as in the regulation of digestion. In addition, it can help disinfect wounds and oral infections (thrush, cold sores, conjunctivitis, among others). The properties of cornflower are laxative, tonic, diuretic and antibiotic. Cornflower petals may also promote good blood circulation, improve vision and reduce fever.
Lemongrass - originally from Central America and Southeast Asia, the lemongrass is highly appreciated in the Caribbean, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia. This delicious rustic herb is adept in mild environments with the presence of humidity and good sun exposure. In several countries, it is used as a vegetable and aromatic herb in various culinary dishes combined with grated coconut, curry, fish, ginger and meat.
Lemongrass contains about 70% essential oil rich in vitamin A, equal to that found in lemon and orange peel. It can help fight excessive sweating and even mitigate the effects of the athlete's foot. In Suriname (a South American country), this wonderful herb is used to fight cough, asthma, headaches and fever. While in the West, it is used as a digestive tonic and natural calming of the nervous system.
