Dried Cornflower Petals, Organic

Dried Cornflower Petals, Organic


Botanical Name: Rosa centifolia

Origin: Egypt

Cultivation: Organic, sun-dried, and sustainably hand-harvested. The rose has been appreciated for its beauty and aroma for centuries. Rose petals destined for distillation or drying, are picked every day and by hand on the first morning when the flower opens, at or just before sunrise when the content of the volatile rose oils is highest.

This species of wild rose variety is found throughout Europe, Asia and northern Africa. The climbing habit of this shrub is aided by sharp, claw-like thorns that line its stems, a feature referenced by the common names witches' briar and briar rose. The plant is also called dog rose, likely due to its species name of canina.

Qualities: Dried rose petals are a great source of vitamin C and are a colourful, delicate addition to tea blends and potpourri mixes. 

Appearance & Aroma: Vibrant red-dark pink petals with a strong floral/rose aroma.

Flavor Profile:Dried rose petals add more visual appeal and fragrance than flavor.

Common Uses: Infuse in alcohol and glycerin to make traditional rose water or oil; add to potpourri mixtures and other herbal displays; use in herbal tea blends. The flowers may also be used in baked goods, added to baths and many more uses.

Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in an airtight container.
