Corn and Cornsilk General Information
Corn has been used for ritual and medicinal uses as well as being a food source, since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs. To ancient Indians, Corn was a symbol of protection, luck, property, and wealth. They hung a sheaf of Corn above a mirror for good fortune, and wore necklaces of dried grains to prevent nosebleeds. The Indians also burned corn ears on the threshold of a bedroom to ward off a painful delivery, and placed an ear of Corn in the baby’s cradle for protection.

Corn Silk is a collection of the stigmas (fine, soft, yellowish threads or tassels) from the female flowers of corn called maize, and they are 4 - 8 inches long with a mild sweetish taste. The origin of Corn is impossible to trace, because it has been cultivated for so many centuries. It is thought to come from Mexico or subtropical regions and is cultivated in warm climates. Corn thrives in rich, well-drained soil in sun and may be propagated by wind pollination. Maize was eaten and considered an important food source throughout much of North America and Central America, and became the center of art and religious life for many American Indian tribes. Moreover, many tribes used it in a variety of medicinal ways. The name corn is actually derived from an Anglo-Saxon word for a collective group of grains of cereals grown for food. Maize/Corn did not actually reach the Old World until after Columbus discovered America. Corn is America's greatest contribution to the food of the world (both human and cattle feed).

Corn and Cornsilk Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Corn is best known for its ability to help prevent cardiovascular diseases by lowering cholesterol levels, but it also has regenerative properties. It is rich in essential fatty acids, which helps the rebuilding of cells, and in maintaining the hydration of the epidermis. Cornsilk is the yellowish thread-like strands called stigmas found inside the husks of corn. The stigmas are found on the female flower of corn and are collected for medicinal use before the plant is pollinated. Cornsilk is highly valued in herbology as a support to the urinary system. It contains silicon, B vitamins, PABA, and small amounts of iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Cornsilk is used to soothe the urinary tract and can give relief to the bladder, kidneys and small intestine. Cornsilk assists with prostate problems, bed-wetting, carpel tunnel syndrome, edema, and obesity. It has also been used to lessen the effects of premenstrual syndrome, and it promotes relaxation.

Corn oil a good preventative for cardiovascular disease and it is also a wonderful skin conditioner. It is found in hair conditioners, body-massage oils, emollient hand creams, lip balms, and facial care products for dry and damaged skin, baby skin, and mature skin.

Corn and Cornsilk Dosage Information
Corn and Cornsilk come in various forms and are ingredients in many products. For best results, read and follow product label directions. If using a tincture take 3 – 6 ml of the tincture three times a day.

The stigmas should be collected just before pollination occurs; the timing depends upon climate. It is best used fresh as some of the activity is lost with time. Tea/Infusion: Pour a cup of boiling water onto 2 teaspoonfuls of the dried herb and leave to infuse for 10 – 15 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day.

Combinations: Cornsilk may be combined with Couchgrass, Bearberry, Buchu or Yarrow for the treatment of Cystitis.
