Cornflower General Information
Centaurea cyanus, also called Cornflower is a garden flower in the United States but a weed in the grain fields of Europe. It is a native plant of Europe with gray green leaves and bright blue flowers, which may also sometimes be pink, white or purple. It is called Bluebottle or Bluet in England and Bluebonnet in Scotland; in North America the Cornflower shares with other plants the names Ragged Robin, Bachelorís Button, or Ragged Sailor. The long stemmed blue heads of the flowers, which have bottle or vase shaped florets, yield a juice which, mixed with alum, have been used as a dye.

Centaurea is named after the Centaur, Chiron, who was thought to have taught mankind the healing powers of herbs. Cyanus comes from the Latin Goddess, Cyanus (Flora), whose favorite flower was the Cornflower. For centuries this plant has been used to ward off many ailments, particularly those related to the eyes and eyesight. Cornflower has been found to have antiseptic properties.

Cornflower Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Cornflower can be used for cuts, scrapes, eruptions on the skin, acne, and bruising of the skin. Herbalists use Cornflower as a remedy for conjunctivitis, eye swelling, puffiness, and pain related to the eye area. The petals are taken as a bitter tonic and an appetite stimulant, and for supporting liver function. It is thought by some that the petals of the Cornflower help improve resistance to infection. The seeds are used as a mild laxative for children. The leaves can be used in decoctions for rheumatic complaints and as a hair rinse to treat scalp eczema. A douche is used to treat vaginal Candida infections.

The Journal of Ethnopharmacology posted an article in 1999. This article was of laboratory uses of Centaurea cyanus. C. cyanus showed that extracted polysaccharides of the flower-heads had anti-inflammatory properties. Starch and cellulose are polysaccharides. Moreover, these polysaccharides were found to be mainly composed of galacturonic acid, arabinose, glucose, rhamnose and galactose. It has been shown that all of these properties are beneficial.
