Every summer, the Hungarian countryside blooms with bold and beautiful wildflowers. Used for centuries for medicinal purposes, wildflowers remain a key component of many health remedies today – including skin care. The Eminence Certified Organic Farm is home to a variety of blooms with unique healing and beautifying properties. Read on to learn about the beneficial botanicals infused in the Eminence Organics Wildflower Collection.
Good things come in small packages – and tiny poppy seeds pack a powerful punch. Loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, they are excellent for both your health and your complexion. Poppy seeds are not only packed with essential minerals like calcium and copper, they also contain high amounts of phosphorus and manganese, an element that produces collagen. In skin care, poppy seeds’ round shape provides gentle exfoliation that buffs away dry skin cells for a youthful, glowing complexion.
Don’t let cornflower’s pretty blue hue fool you; this striking flower has potent anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. In Greek mythology, Achilles’ battle wounds were treated with a poultice of cornflowers and in the 17th century, it was recommended for treating a variety of maladies, from broken blood vessels to scorpion stings. In skin care, we use cornflower as a gentle astringent to treat puffy eyes and dark circles.
This powerful botanical is a health and skin care superstar. Echinacea is renowned for its antiviral and immune-enhancing properties and has long been considered one of the best natural remedies for the common cold and flu. In skin care, it is used to eliminate infections and to treat a variety of conditions including acne, eczema and psoriasis. At Eminence Organics, we harness echinacea’s healing properties to protect skin against abuse of the elements.
Evening primrose has been sought-out for its precious oil for centuries. This small wildflower was traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory to treat bruises, digestive problems and sore throats. In skin care, evening primrose is known for its calming and restorative qualities. High in vitamins and Omega-6 fatty acids, it is often used in creams and salves to treat dryness and itchiness.
The fragrant linden flower is a natural sedative that helps to soothe and calm the nervous system. Brewed as a tea, it is often used in herbal medicine to promote relaxation and ease muscular tension. In addition, linden flower is high in flavonoids which help rid the body of damaging free radicals. We use it for its hydrating and rejuvenating properties, which greatly benefit the skin’s appearance.
The Inspiration Behind Eminence Organics’ Wildflower Collection
The Eminence Organics Wildflower Collection is inspired by the wildflowers grown here at the Eminence Certified Organic Farm. You can find these beautiful and beneficial blooms in the flower beds that line our sun-filled walkways. Our handmade flower beds were thoughtfully designed to place harmonious plants side by side, encouraging a thriving population of bees, butterflies and other natural pollinators. They are considered a “special” growing space and are home to a variety of botanicals that require extra love and attention.
