BOTANICAL FACT SHEET

Centaurea originates from the East Mediterranean and grows in cultivated fields in all temperate regions. It is an annual herbaceous plant with a spindly, branching stem between 10 and 32 inches high and slightly downy leaves. Its capitula have long peduncles and overlapping bracts with ciliated, membranous edges and blue, tubulous flowers. Its fruit is an off-white, tightly-packed achene with a fawn-coloured pappus.

TRADITIONAL USES

Centaurea is used locally to treat dermatological problems (small wounds, scratches, chapped skin, insect bites, etc.). It is also used to relieve irritation or ocular discomfort. Today, Centaurea is widely used by the cosmetic industry for its blue pigments.
