Popular for its ability to maintain its vibrant colour on cold process soap, blue cornflowers have also been a part of holistic health and wellness practices for thousands of years. With its vivid blues and earthy, gently sweet aroma, this flower is as versatile as it is beautiful.
In natural skin care, blue cornflower is a gentle astringent, and can aid in toning, brightening, and regulating sebum. Ideal for cleansers, toners, and moisturizers, blue cornflower is a beautiful addition to your regimen.
