Blue Cornflower Petals, also known as Centaurea cyanus, are a popular ingredient in soapmaking. The petals not only add a beautiful blue colour to the soap but they are also believed to have skin-soothing properties. They are commonly used to make botanical soaps, which are made using natural ingredients such as flowers, herbs, and essential oils. Blue cornflower petals are also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, making them a great addition to soaps for sensitive skin. When used in soapmaking, the petals are typically steeped in oil to infuse it with their colour and beneficial properties before being added to the soap mixture. Blue Cornflower Petals can also be used as a natural exfoliant and can be added to the soap mixture or as a topping to provide a gentle scrubbing effect.
