Corn Silk Products

Corn Silk Products

Derived from the long shiny fibres at the top of an ear of corn, Corn silk has a long history of traditional use by the Native American tribes. They showed the European settlers how to brew a healing tea from the strands of corn and from there its use spread throughout Europe. It was consumed for its soothing and cleansing properties, and as a remedy for many common ailments. 

Corn silk strands serve the function of collecting pollen to fertilise each seed on the corn, forming a delicious yellow kernel. The soft strands start out being green in colour, turning purple to red and finally a yellowish colour. The silk is harvested in the summer, the best of which is found in young unripe corn cobs before it turns brown.

Indigo Herbs is delighted to offer Organic Corn Silk Teabags from Buddha Teas - a delightful, earthy, slightly sweet tasting tea.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Use 1 - 2 teaspoons of Corn Silk Tea per cup of boiling water. Allow to steep for 10 - 15 minutes - relax and enjoy. 

Indigo Herbs Corn Silk Tea is derived from the silky strands of the highest quality female corn. The golden-green strands are removed from the ears of corn then cleaned and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The strands are then tested for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

Corn Silk Tincture 100ml from Indigo Herbs is derived from the highest quality corn silk that is then extracted. This tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herb.

Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Corn Silk Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning the Corn Silk used to make this tincture undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
