Corn Silk, Organic, 1oz. bag
Zea mays

Corn silk is a diuretic with an affinity for the kidneys and urinary tract, especially when heat is present. Considered energetically cooling and demulcent, corn silk is sometimes used in traditional folk herbalism as a tonic herb. Corn silk is typically prepared fresh as a tincture or can be dried and used in herbal tea blends and as a stand-alone infusion. Most people are familiar with corn silk as the glossy strands that stubbornly cling to a fresh ear of corn. Although most people toss this material, dried cornsilk makes a tasty tea since it contains the same compounds found in mint and in thyme. Be aware, however, that corn silk may increase the effects of diuretics, such as furosemide (Lasix).

Sold in 1oz. quantities. If you want multiple ounces, just add multiple quantities.
