Corn Silk Tea

Course Flyer

Here’s a little video taster from my Online Kitchen Medicine course. ‘Cure’s from your Kitchen Cupboards, Better Health at your Fingertips’. The course contains not only valuable information on 25 different herbs and spices found in your Kitchen but also 16 different videos showing you various herbal preparations.

In this video, we learnt to make a simple Corn Silk Tea.  Most people, if they are given an ear of corn will peel it and remove not just the leaves but the little threads which cover it and stick out the top to reveal corn cob, which they cook and eat. Those little golden threads have very valuable medicinal properties as a urinary antiseptic and supportive to both the kidneys and the urinary system. You can use a simple tea from corn silks to help alleviate problems like cystitis and other urinary tract infections.
