Derivation of the botanical name Centaurea, gets its name from the centaur, Chiron, who is said to have taught us the healing power of herbs.

The Hebrew name: דרדר, dardar, from Aramaic: דרדרא, dardara; Arabic: דרדאר, darda’ar. (Gen. 3:18, Hos. 10:8). In modern Arabic shauket el-dardar is applied to the star thistles or knapweeds.

Cornflower’s medicinal prosperities were first mentioned in the 12th century writings of Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) and later the herbalist, Pierandrea Mattioli (1501-1577) recommended it on the basis of the Doctrine of Signatures, a theory according to which a plant’s appearance indicated the ailments it would cure.

Cornflower’s deep blue color symbolizes healthy eyes – hence it became a treatment for eye ailments. (In France, the plant is called casse-lunette, or “break glasses”).Cornflower is still used in French Herbal medicine as a remedy for the eyes. Mainly soaked in water for several days then soak a cloth and lay on or dab the eye area.

HOWEVER PLEASE DO NOT SPRAY HYDROSOL INTO EYES. Hydrosol has tiny droplets of essential oil from the distillation process which can irritate or worse damage eyes. If you do, you do so at your own risk!
