Centaurea cyanus dried flowers
USES AND PREPARATIONS
The plant’s medicinal value lies primarily in its anti-inflammatory properties. Taken internally as an herbal tea, it is thought to aid in soothing stomach ulcers, while rinsing with the tea is used to speed the healing of sores or bleeding gums in the mouth.
The tea can also be good for improving digestion, and the herb’s high antioxidant content aids in detoxifying the liver much like milk thistle.
