Also known as Bachelor’s button, the Cornflower is an annual flowering plant native to Europe, which grows on different soil types, such as mountains or fields. From the Asteraceae family, this plant with purple-blue flowers also became a true historical symbol in France at the time of the First World War in memory of the victims and veterans.

With sweet floral aromas, the Cornflower hydrosol is traditionally used for its many therapeutic benefits, especially calming and anti-inflammatory.
