Cornflower Hydrosol

I find the aroma of Cornflower Hydrosol to be quite pleasant. I have a hunch that if you like the aroma of Roman Chamomile Essential Oil or Roman Chamomile Hydrosol, you might just like the aroma of Cornflower Hydrosol. They don't smell that much alike, but both have a pleasant, sweet, floral, herbal quality to them.

Botanical Name: Centaurea cyanus

Aromatic Strength: Mild-Medium (Depending on source)

Shelf Life: Up to 1 year if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications: Suzanne Catty reports that Cornflower Hydrosol may be used as an eyewash and is useful as a compress for tired, itchy eyes. She also mentions that it's useful for mature and dry skin. She states that it may contain phytohormones and could potentially be helpful for hot flashes. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 81.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Cornflower Hydrosol can be used for these applications: "eyewash, skin toner, dry or mature skin, bruising, hot flashes, relaxing." [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 170.]

Safety Information: Suzanne Catty states that because Cornflower Hydrosol may contain phytohormones, she recommends avoiding its use during the first trimester of pregnancy. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 81.] Read AromaWeb's Hydrosol Safety Guidelines.
