• Lovely petals carry a neutral flavor
The tiny flower goes by many names such as Bachelor's Buttons, Basket Flower, the Old Fashioned Blue Bottle. Most commonly called the cornflower however, the pale blue flower, (Latin: Centaurea cyanus) gets its genus name, "Centaurea" from ancient Greek mythology. A Centaur, (half man, half horse), by the name of Chiron was said to have used the blue petals of the cornflower to mend his wounds after battle. Chiron was by nature one of the most peaceful of the Centaurs and according to myth was credited with introducing mortal humans to the power, and soothing abilities of herbs.

Several varieties of this flower were formerly held in high repute in health. Today the wild Cornflower is regarded as a herb that can be used for ophthalmia. The flowers can be used to prepare a distilled water which is a vehicle for eyewashes.
