COMMON NAME Standardized: Primrose flower Other: cowslip, common cowslip, cowslip primrose
BOTANICAL NAME Primula Veris Plant Family: Primulaceae
OVERVIEW Primrose flower is a variable evergreen or semi-evergreen perennial plant growing to 25 cm (10 in) tall and broad, with a rosette of leaves 5–15 cm long and 2–6 cm broad. The deep yellow flowers are produced in spring, in clusters of 10-30 blooms together on a single stem. Each flower is 9–15 mm broad. Red- and orange-flowered plants occur rarely but can be locally widespread in areas where coloured primula hybrids bloom at the same time as the native cowslip enabling cross-pollination.
CHEMICAL CONSTITUTENS The roots of Primrose flower contain several glycosides of 5-methoxysalicylic methyl ester, such as primeverin and primulaverin. In the dried crude root, their phenolic aglycones are responsible for the typical odor reminiscent of methyl salicylate or anethole. The dried roots contain significant amounts of triterpene saponins, such as primula acid I/II, while in the flower these constituents are located in the sepals, and the dominating constituents are flavonoids.
USES AND PREPARATIONS Dried primrose flower as tincture, or infused oil. In the 17th century, the famous English botanist Nicholas Culpepper asserted that anyone who used the distilled water from cowslip, or an ointment made from its flower, would become more beautiful. Modern herbalists still make a skin cleaning lotion from cowslip. It is said to be useful in treating acne, pimples, and other skin blemishes. Its unique cleansing properties are said to remove dirt and open the pores of the skin, allowing for a fresher, smoother look. It has been used for centuries to make sedative tea. Its leaves are said to be mildly narcotic, and it is used as an herbal remedy for insomnia as hell as hyperactivity.
PRECAUTIONS Specific:Rare side effects of the saponins can be nausea or diarrhea while some of the phenolic constituents are possibly responsible for allergic reactions
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
Dried Flowers
These lovingly - tended Botanicals are perfect for any craft projects like bath bombs, candles, soaps, salves, potpourri or as natural confetti.

All Dry flowers offered are food grade and suitable for culinary uses. You can use them in blends of teas, tinctures, infusions, to decorate cake, dessert as cocktail garnishes etc.

Biodegradable Confetti
Single litres are sold without cones and will serve approx 10 - 12 guests depending on your method of distribution (10-12 Handfuls).

Confetti is sent to you in a re-sealable bag which if kept in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, will keep for months, although we generally advise you to buy dried flowers up to 8 months in advance to reduce the risk of color or scent fade.
All deliveries takes place within one working day after receiving payment. For more detail please visit Delivery page.
