CHAMOMILE: Grown in Egypt, this species of chamomile is the same as the widely-known German chamomile.
It can be found solely or blended with other herbs and spices to craft teas, bath sachets, and tinctures.
CORNFLOWER PETALS: The cornflower, a member of the daisy family, stands out for its radiant azure blooms. It's a common sight near fields of corn, thus garnering its namesake.
Our selection of dried cornflower petals is ready to be incorporated into teas, potpourri, pastries, stews, salads, and custards or frozen into preferred ice cubes for iced drinks.
HELICHRYSUM: A powerhouse of restorative healing, its anti-inflammatory properties ease discomfort and provide soothing analgesic effects. Recommended for acute trauma and daily skin health routine alike, its antioxidant features help prevent burns and bruises and nurture healthy nerves.
HIBISCUS FLOWERS: Explore the brilliant hues of dried hibiscus flower, traditionally cultivated for teas and oils.
Ever wondered how to brew hibiscus flower tea? Just boil the dried red blooms, take off the flame, cover, and let steep for 15 minutes. Hibiscus flower also strengthens hair when massaged in a mixture of 3-4 tbsps flower and 8 tbsps yogurt. Soak for 20-30 minutes, shampoo, done!
Bulk dried hibiscus flower has more uses than the traditional teas and oils - sprinkle some in soup, blend into doughs, or use to embellish tables. You can even make hibiscus flower powder at home!
JASMINE FLOWERS: Jasmine, a member of the olive family and a climber native to tropical regions of Europe, Asia, and Africa, has rose-like blooms which are celebrated for their exquisite beauty.
These flowers have a reputation as a motherhood symbol and are often woven into garlands or used to adorn hair. Additionally, they are a popular ingredient for tincturing perfumes and tea mixtures.
LAVENDER: Also known as Lavandula Officinalis, lavender flowers/buds come from the plant family Lamiaceae (which also include mints) and have a variety of uses. They are very aromatic, and they maintain full aroma when in dry form. In terms of texture, they are dry but not crunchy. The flower buds are extremely light, so a small quantity will go a long way. The small buds originate from the flowers that bloom from late spring to early autumn and vary from rich purple color to pale lavender.
The dried lavender buds are great for making sachets that can be placed around the house, in drawers or commonly ignored household areas (think lavender moth balls). The sachets are great to hang near the door, window or even throughout your car to keep insects at bay.
MARIGOLD: Marigold, botanically known as Calendula, derives its title from Latin for "little calendar" or "little clock" due to its flower consistently appearing around the new moon each month.
Additionally, a strong infusion of Calendula blossoms can augment the highlights in fair hair when used as a conditioner. Brewed as a tea, this yellow flower relative of asters and sunflowers imparts a subtly sweet and tranquilizing experience.
ROSE PETALS: Nutritionally-rich, edible dried rose petals are a boon to tea mixes, adding a vibrant hue to anything it's used for.
We personally enjoy adding these dried flowers to bath salts for a luxuriously relaxing experience.
